I currently am using RSS and email notifications on my comic site. I want to implement push notifications too. But am curious if people even know about RSS.
Also, I wrote an article about RSS feeds if you're interested in learning more about using them.
woah this is really usaful! Thank you!!
Glad it's helpful! Are you are a comic reader/creator/both?
Im a reader so far... hoping to be a creator but never understood how to use RSS (im really bad a t these things but I knew I needed them)
Me too. I was so confused about RSS at first. Hope you get to a make an awesome comic someday soon!
I'm not sure I've ever heard of RSS? Thank you for the article it was super useful. I'm not a technology kind of gal, but only the person who sets up the feed gets the notifications, right? Not the readers subscribed to the story
Yeah, I knew I had to use it because Im so bad at self promoting me and I was in need of these helful tools but your explanation is the best I ever read (with examples and all T_T )
You're so welcome! Basically anyone who "subscribes" will get notifications. So creators make a link for their readers to click. Anybody who wants to can click the link, hit subscribe, and they will get notifications.
So glad the explanation was clear. And don't worry, everyone struggles with promotion.
Oh, wow! That makes a lot more sense, and that's super useful.
I will definitely give it a shot. Thank you :))
RSS feeds are pretty much the only way I read webcomics.
I'm one of those sad sacks still out here mourning the loss of Google Reader
I only discovered how to use RSS feeds a couple months ago, so never even heard of Google Reader. Glad to hear you use RSS to read webcomics though!
