Feature Update: Recycling is Good for your Posts

Tuesday, May 22, 2007

You're blogging. You want your articles read. As much as possible.

So starting today, FeedBlitz is going to help extend the life of your newsletter articles by automatically providing a summary of older posts at the end of each mail - a simple recap, if you will. The idea is to recycle your recent work to extend your circulation and grow page views for zero effort on your part. A link to the recap appears in the table of contents we automatically build for you when we send your emails out.

The recap itself consists of a brief description and a bulleted list of older articles with links back to the source. If you are tracking click-throughs, FeedBlitz tracks clicks on recap links as well.

The post summary is enabled for everyone. The default setting is to send the five most recent articles in the feed after the ones that make the mailing. You can see how it looks on your publication's preview at www.feedblitz.com/f?previewfeed=<listid> (so the FeedBlitz news preview is at www.feedblitz.com/f?previewfeed=84 ). If you're getting this article by mail, you'll also see the recap at work just below this entry.

You can change the number of articles in the recap (including setting the value to zero to disable it) and the text used to label the summary in your syndication's basic settings. Here's how:
  1. Go to My Account - My Syndications - View and Manage (or http://www.feedblitz.com/f?Lists )
  2. Choose Syndication Setup - The Basics
  3. Edit the values and save.
The recap is built for previews and scheduled updates only; On demand and newsflash broadcasts do not get the recap.

Recycling. It's good for the environment, and it's good for your circulation.
