Revisited: Creating an XML Content Feed With PHP (Page 1 of 6 )
So, you've spent the best part of a year creating your PHP/MySQL driven web site. You've got a fair amount of decent, flexible content, and you're buddies with a couple of other webmasters, so they've given you a free banner ad on their site in exchange for one on yours.
Promoting your site can be even harder than developing it. I've found that one of the best ways to attract more visitors to your site is by sharing your content with whoever wants it. That's right; let them publish your articles on their site (as long as they add a link back to your site near the end), write articles specifically for other web sites and eZines and setup a content feed from your site.
