You can create your own RSS feed, but you'll have to host it elsewhere, no html on Ecrater

1. Create your own RSS feed with Feed4all, save it on your hard drive and name it ECRATER RSS or something so you recognize it.

http://feed4all.com/ (online)

http://www.feedforall.com/ (downloadable software, free trial period)

2. If you pick the online option, you won't have to host it, feed4all will host it for you. If you pick the software, you have to upload the RSS to the internet to get it "live". You can use your own server, if you have one, if not, you can create a page in Google Page Creator, just upload the file.

http://pages.google.com/-/about.html


Add all of your things in your ecrater store to your feed, submit to RSS directories, plaster that feed all over the internet! Here's a couple of good places to start:

http://www.rss-specifications.com/rss-submission.htm


http://www.submitrssfeed.com/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=/StepOne.aspx


Here's also a bunch of cpanel free hosts, enough to room on most of them to host that one file, at least:

http://www.free-webhosts.com/free-cpanel-hosting.php


3. That will give you the URL to the feed, which you can then add to your blog, website, myspace, wherever. Here's a handy RSS button creator:

http://www.feedforall.com/public/rss-graphic-tool.htm

http://feedshark.brainbliss.com/

http://www.rss-specifications.com/rss-directory.htm

And here's a way to submit to your RSS feed to Google for indexing:

http://www.masternewmedia.org/Google_RSS_submission/RSS_submission_tools/submit_rss_feeds_to_Google_20050727.htm

Note that Google treats an RSS feed as 'news', and as such will only publish the 'headlines' - the first 2-3 listings. That's good, though, especially if you change the headline frequently - the more your "news" changes, the more often the bot will be back.
