One tip I have been given by the traffic master is to get the people that visit your site to sign up to your RSS feed.

What is an RSS feed? An RSS feed automatically sends you updates from your favourite websites or blogs, so you never miss any thing from that site. That way everytime you add a new message they get an alert and read it.

The best way to get people to sign up to your RSS feed is to show them how to sign up people to their own RSS feed.

You demonstrate how to do this by guiding them through a “step by step how to do it” usng your own site as a demo run.

The name of your new subscription now appears in the reader, as well as the new content from the website feed.
Have a look here :

And just so you can see, here’s the content from the original site :

And That’s it. You can set up an RSS feed for any blog or website that you want to stay up to date with, and you don’t have to be constantly revisiting the site.
