Subscribe to SEO Book via Full or Partial Feed

If you are new to blogs and feeds, I recommend watching this 4 minute video to understand how RSS feeds work, and then spend an hour trying out a feed reader or iGoogle to subscribe to a couple of your favorite blogs.

I had some RSS issues with iGoogle that I think are cleared up now. The upside is that rather than only offering full or partial feeds, we now offer both. You can subscribe to either feed using your favorite feed reader on our feeds page.

If you are a blogger, it only takes about 15 minutes to set up a feed page like mine, and if you get a few new subscribers each month, that creates a cumulative advantage over time. Don't forget to also link to your RSS feed page in the sidebar of your blog.

Hi Aaron

For those who aren't using feeds yet, they are certainly missing a trick. Feeds save me enormous amounts of time when trying to keep up to date with current trends.

As well as a reader I've been using your feed for a while (amongst others) on a Google personalised partnerpage from Google Apps(as a Google widget) and it works well.

The SEOBook feed stopped updated for me on my iGoogle reader for a little while. I thought Aaron went on vacation, or was working on some monster post, as it didn't update for days.

I actually visited the site and quickly realized there was a problem since there was about 10-15 posts I had missed. Everything has been working fine for a while now.

That's great news.

I've already switched.

Are there an advantages or disadvantages to using feedburner instead of using a stock wordpress RSS?

If you use feedburner make sure you set up a custom feed so you keep control of the feed URL in case you decide to change it down the road.

That's great, subscribing to the full feed now.
