5 ways to monetize your RSS Feed

Post by popeye on Sun Feb 21, 2010 11:50 am

RSS Feeds are one of the most important part of any blog, website or portal that has an ever growing content and as people tend to forget about a particular blog no matter how much they liked its content after they visited you from searching a 100 sites on the net. Now the point is that you can subscribe via emails to these RSS feeds to get the latest content delivered to you whenever it is posted. No new content, No new mail. This way both bloggers and readers are benefited.

Now why would one want to monetize their RSS Feeds, won't it be like all those pop up and pop under ads that we all hate and the answer is No, infact they are a powerful internet marketing tool that’s taken on several variants.

But, in a way it leads to keep visitors away from your website, as whatever they want they get if via RSS.This limits your traffic and monetization potential and we know how carefully you put all those contextual ads alongside your content. But if we think on a larger scale - This visitor that probably visited your site for the first and last time, now he is in some way connected to your site and in the future there are many possibilities of him visiting your site and even become a regular visitor or registered member.

Now the Question is when should you monetize your RSS Feeds and the answer is quite simple. When ever you want, though there are some companies that want you to have a certain minimum number to subscribers before you apply to have their ads shown and there are some which are through invites only.

Thanks for the suggestions and I think if you are getting enough clicks then bidvertiser is the best option, you can get upto 5$ per click, I am only offered 2.50$ as the highest bid for my web RSS feeds though.
