Partial RSS feeds SUCK ASS

They really do, and I notice some people I read are swiching to partial feeds.

Trust me, if you have a partial feed I am not really reading your posts. For real, you have to be a die hard fan to read a blog with partial feeds. Most of the time when it’s a partial feed I skim through the titles/posts and after a month or so I un-subscribe. Too much effort and too boring to have 100 tabs open just to check the posts.

And trust me, on the long run you will have more subscribers if you have a full feed.

Check this post out, see how many other people hate partial feeds and see what this blogger has to say.

And those who switched from partial to full, (yes I noticed) I LOVE YOUR BLOG 😀 .

  1. Ok I’m very technologically-challneged, please tell me what’s the difference betweeb partial and full feed and what’s RSS? (in less than 2000 words)

  2. Blush 🙂

  3. I am supposedly a geeky tech yet I don’t have the background to judge on partial RSS or full RSS. and to tell you the truth, I don’t care.

  4. HAHAHAHA Khalaf! How’d you know?

  5. Hareega: check this out

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS

    In not so many words it’s like an aggregator but you get to chose which blogs you want to add to it.
    go to “google.reader.com” and subscribe, then add all the blogs you have on your blog roll and you can check them for new posts without having to go to the blog to see if they have anything new, this my friend is an RSS feed

    Hamza: there are advantages to both but as a reader I hate it.

  6. I really stopped reading everyone like that too…
    I’ve asked a blogger and the answer was it doesnt matter which post is displayed first because they are all AS good….. OOO, excuse moi 😀 lol ok gay, stop…. too much ego.

  7. well thanks for the expalnation, although it exceeded 2k words

  8. I started adding more tags on the posts just to make the main page load faster. Probably 80% of people visiting the main page got there from a search engine looking for something unrelated. So it’s kinda a waste of bandwidth to load everything for every one of them.

    I think Hareega accidentally entered his email in the name field. You might wanna switch that, or the spam bots will get him.

  9. Why thank you for loving my blog 😀 LOL!

  10. batoul: A lot of readers don’t read or subscribe when it’s partial.

    Hani: Well Hani it’s not only about the search engines, it’s about convenience to the reader .
    I changed Hareega thanx for the tip.

    KJ: LOL
