    • Emily

      Hi Jill, I´ve also seen other website builders that are relatively easy, but I think this one is very simple as well. I´m trying it today on one of my blogs, I´m very excited and I hope you try it too.

    • Chad

      I´m about to creat a free website and you made an excellent point here, RSS feed helps people to stay connected for longer and makes the website more dynamic. I´ll give it a try since it doesn´t look that it can take forever to put it up, by the contrary there are very few steps in the process.

      • Bob Charles

        Hi Chad, yes, RSS feeds are great for keeping people up to date with news and other information that refreshes itself on a daily basis. Most people dont realize that when they create a free website for a new business, that adding an RSS feed is as easy as it is.  

    • Bob Charles

    I´d love to create a free website too and I am considering adding RSS feed because I plan to update it  every day or two, I think this is an easy way to add this useful tool.

    • Bob Charles

      Hi Lisa, yes, if you add an RSS feed to your website, you don’t have to manually update your website every day with all the new content that is being posted to your blog or whatever else the source of your RSS feed is.  It’s a great tool to keep your business website fresh with new information, and the search engines love it too. I’m excited for you to try our website creator and see all the powerful features that free website building with IconoSites can afford you.  Welcome!

  • Heidy

    Many websites today have RSS feed, and it´s the best way to keep people interested on the topic the site desires to expose, so if you want to create a business website make sure to keep it updated, RSS feed is a great tool and here is an easy way to add it to your site.

    • Louis_SEO

      I agree with you Heidy specially when it is about promoting new products on your website or new posts, also i can learn really fast about other websites that I am interested in. I think that this tool, as you say, is great and using this website builder makes it simple to install.

  • Virginia

    I´m thinking about giving it a try for my blog, to me RSS feed is important to keep my readers updated, and other website builders I have seen are a bit complicated and since I don´t know much about this I have question, is it necessary however to use TrackBack in order to let people know about new posts? 

  • Rprater1968

    Can I use this RSS feed on another website that our Church already has set up? I’m looking to add feed so the members or guest will know of any updates to the site?
