RSS For The Win

RSS Feeds For The WinEarlier this year something took place that could drastically alter the way the business community communicates with their customer base. For the rumored sum of $100 million dollars cash Google bought a company called FeedBurner.

If this news is new to you then let's back up a bit and start at the beginning and talk briefly about a little “gadget” that has been around since 1999 called an RSS feed. Although there are several possible and acceptable meanings to this acronym the most common is Really Simple Syndication. And to put a definition to the term an RSS feed is just another way to share data on the web.

The purpose of an RSS feed is to summarize, or possibly contain the entire content, of some news or information found on the web. This is often referred to as a web feed. A web feed can be anything that gets published on the web, be it from a blog, a website, a podcast, etc. Companies can take advantage of this new way to share data in several ways:

First an RSS feed allows even the smallest of companies to have the largest of audiences if they have good content to publish on the web.

Secondly the basic RSS service is free. Other than the time and effort to write the marketing material, the potential cost savings over traditional printed marketing materials is astronomical.

Thirdly RSS information is propogated around the world almost immediately and will reside on the web in perpetuity. These RSS feeds once distributed can also bring increased traffic to your website.

Finally as a reader of RSS feeds a company can stay on top of current market or technology trends. This could give the RSS user an edge over a competitor who might chose to wait for their market news from the slower but more traditional media outlets.

Many readers will not realize how far this technology has already come so here are a few things you should know:

An RSS reader now comes standard with all new copies of Windows Vista.

RSS headline animators that summarize and link to your latest stories can easily be placed on your website for no charge. These animators can display a scrolling list of recent news or articles you have posted and if clicked on can take the user directly to that source. (Click here for an example of a headline animator from a Computer Rental Blog)

Hundreds of millions of RSS feeds are indexed and distributed automatically every day by Google News.

RSS feeds can be automated with free software from FeedBurner or right from your blog on sites like Blogger.com.

If your company has not yet started using an RSS feed there is no better time than now.

Google To Text Link Industry - Go Away

Google Slams Paid Text LinksWe could not let the week pass without a post on the biggest Google move in years. So if you have not already heard over the last two weeks Google has been scouring the net like an angel of death looking for sites with an abundance of paid links sitting on them. Once identified these unlucky sites have had their page rank reduced by as much as 3 “notches”.

These are not just link farms we are talking about but the biggest names on the internet. From financial sites, to newspapers, to Blogs, all have suffered the same fate. Once identified as being the host of paid links the die was cast and the result swift and certain.

The intent of all this appears to be that Google disapproves of the text link industry even as it exists in the most established and reputable of sites.

Some sources report Google wants all paid text links to use a nofollow command to prevent any rank from being passed to a site that is mealy trying to buy “Google Love”.

Others have alluded to a much more sinister scheme. As Google is heavy into the add business themselves this could be a move to punish those who do not use the Google service. This to me appears to be very dangerous ground for the once beloved internet giant. As it is certain that in the last week they have made more enemies than they have in the past 10 years and that combined with the hypocrisy of such a strategy could come back to haunt them.

Chicago Computer Rentals - An SEO Challenge

Chicago Computer Rentals

"Chicago Computer Rentals" is a very competitive term in Google. There are several very large computer rental firms in Chicago who main domains resolve quite nicely on that Google Search. In the past we have urged our clients to attack such markets from as many angles as possible to capture as many verticals as can be captured without having to take on the big money and the big firms now in charge of the number one Chicago search spots.

That being said the word came today that our largest customer, Rentacomptuer.com, wants to give it a go and optimize the dozens of Chicago Computer Rental and Chicago Audio Visual Rental pages they have to go head to head with the big guys in the Chicago Computer Rentals game.

Though we have not presented a proposal yet they seam willing to devote the time and money to project. Although we still recommend a diversified strategy for your web marketing this does go to show that at times a market can be so critical that even a costly “frontal attack” on the competition may be necessary.

Phoenix Computer Rental Web Pages Complete

Phoenix Comptuer Rentals Web Deisgn by Xponex

Computer and Audio Visual Rentals in Phoenix are now completely covered for our number one client Rentacomputer.com. This project was a small one that we completed in about 3 days or less.

Bill Schiering, Rent A Computers Vice President of Sales, noticed some time ago that the Phoenix computer rental pages his company had done internally were lacking any content or coherent theme. Mr. Schiering then asked Xponex to “just do what you know works for our website” and 3 days later he is very pleased with the results.

To learn more how Xponex can help fix up your existing web page, even if it is a page you started yourself, visit our Xponex Web and Media Services page.

Convention Rentals - Rent A Computer

Henry B. Gonzalez Comptuer and Audio Visual RentalsWe managed to squeze in two more pages this week on computer and audio visual convention center rentals. The customer is a Nationwide Computer Rental Firm and they are having us do a page for every major convention center in the country.

The new comptuer rental pages this week are for the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio and the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando Florida.

With the busy season for conventions and trade shows rentals, and of course by default computer rentals, fast approaching I don't think we could do these pages fast enough.

Convention and Rental News


Convention Center RentalsXponex has produced a new convention website design aimed at helping both clients in need of rental equipment, and those who are simply looking for convention facilities. A perfect example of this is the Hartford Civic Center in Connecticut. This new design provides an integration of information for those who want to setup a show at the event, and those who want to see an event.

For those that want to see an event there is helpful information on weather, gas prices, movie listings, and even an events page that lists all the shows that will be performed at the Hartford Civic Center. For those who want to setup an event, there is tons of information on rental equipment needed to run the show.

Gas Prices In Live Time

Xponex is always looking for ways to help their clients design useful websites. One new technique gaining in popularity is the use of a "gas gadget". A gas gadget is a bit of code that sits on a webpage and then in live time it displays the current price of gas at stations within a predetermined area.

A simple example of this can be found on the Middletown Ohio Gas Price page.For more information on gadgets contact Xponex Web and Media Services.
