RSS Feeds

Do I have any actual human beings out there using the RSS feeds on this site??

I’m curious because I have been getting a lot of spam blogs and such using my RSS feeds to post my content on their site with their ads and no link back to me and if I don’t have any actual users who bother with the RSS feeds I may just disable them to stop the spam bloggers from reposting my content word for word.

So if you actually use the RSS feeds, please come visit the site and leave me a quick comment in the comments of this post so that I know you exist. Thanks.

Adding this to all categories on the chance that there are people subscribed to only certain categories.

    Hey, just came in from the RSS.

    That does sound like a problem. I’d be willing to subscribe to a different URL or something but I think if you changed the URL and how people find it, it would be just as bad as removing it (particularly for future visitors). Up to you. Spam really sucks, eh?

    Good luck.

    Hi,

    I was actually thinking about just disabling the RSS altogether, but I won’t if people are using it. As far as I knew all the RSS hits were just spam bots.

    Spam does suck. I wouldn’t even mind so much if they linked back, but ah well. I’ll just keep doing what I have been doing, get Google to pull their ads =)
