I don't focus on RSS tools but since this is a blog, it seems most of you will be interested in anything xml and RSS. Hope you find this release useful.
k.soft releases RSS Submit - RSS feed promotion tool
Philadelphia, PA, USA -- 17 January 2005 -- k.soft announces the release of version 1.0 of RSS Submit, a utility to automatically submit RSS feeds to the RSS search engines and directories, for Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP.
As more web masters begin to incorporate blog and RSS feed technology to distribute their content, they may soon realize not enough readers know about their feeds.
RSS Submit is an automated software tool which submits RSS feeds to the RSS search engines and directories. Real-time status is displayed throughout the submittal process. Once complete, the user may browse a listing of the result pages from each search engine, verifying their feed was successfully submitted. Submitting a feed to more than 25 RSS search engines can take less than one minute to complete.
RSS Submit also contains several features to make adding RSS feed URLs to the software easier. The validation feature allows users to test their RSS feed for compliancy prior to submitting. The auto-discovery feature allows users to enter a web page instead of a direct RSS feed URL and any linked feeds can be automatically added for submission.
Registered users of RSS Submit may add an unlimited number of RSS feeds for submission, unlock more RSS search engines, and receive upgrades to the latest version at no charge by using the update feature built into the software.
A fully functional demo is available to the public at http://www.dummysoftware.com/rsssubmit.html. Program registration is US$24.95 and may be completed from the company’s web site.
