As a writer/blogger you are busy enough coming up with your next article post. You would like to be able to click the Publish button in your WordPress blog or website, then step back and relax while your post is automatically sent out all over the Network to the most popular Social Media Sites.
In this post I will teach you the basics on how this can be achieved in 3 easy steps by using only your blog’s RSS feed and Twitterfeed.com, a free website dedicated to helping supplement or enhance the services provided by Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and App.Net.
Although you can achieve this Networking through Jetpack’s Publicize plugin and perhaps other plugins, I am showing you this technique because in a future post I will introduce to you the power of RSS feeds which will utilize your Twitterfeed.com account. In addition, using this technique you will not have to add any added stress to your blog/website by not having to use any plugins, so your site will display to your viewers much faster.
Sign up for Twitterfeed.com account.
Grab your WordPress blog/website feed. In most cases you can find it by going to your domain name and adding “/feed” at the end.
(Example: https://internetmarketinglight.com/feed )
Sign into your Twitterfeed.com account, locate the (+Create New Feed) button at the top and start creating your feed.
Add the name of your Feed and RSS Feed address from Step 2 above, then make sure to test it by clicking (test rss feed) button. If the feed is okay you will see Feed parsed OK, you can now go to the next step in Advanced Settings.
You have several choices in Advanced Settings such as how often to check for new posts, what to include from the post, link shortener and a few other options you may or may not need to use. Once you complete what is relevant for you on this page, click on (Continue to Step 2) at the bottom of the page.
In this final section you will connect your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and App.Net accounts one at a time and if you have multiple accounts for each, you will be able to add them also. Each Social Media account will ask for Authorization so you will need to be signed into each one individually. This process is only needed once per account so any future feeds you will want to add will only require you choosing the particular Social Media account you want to use. Once you’ve added all the Social Media accounts you want to use in this section you are done, click (All Done!) at the bottom of the page.
From this point on any further updates you make to your WordPress blog/website will automatically show up in your Social Media accounts when Twitterfeed.com checks your RSS feed(s).
Congratulations! You can now go and get a hot cup of coffee and relax as you think about your next post. Hope you found this technique useful. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below, or reach out to me directly.
