    Cool I wouldn't recommend using RSS feeds as content

    I would not recommend using RSS feeds to auto populate content. I have tried it in the past and have run into problems at times where some stuff was posted via the feed that did not align with my clients values or goals. It's better to just create a sound content strategy and calendar and stick to it.

    I believe that is the best reason I have ever read against news feeds and other automated text. It's important to remember that not all visitors to your site are new visitors and best not to lose what you've got to take a chance on getting more. Just like the adage... a bird in the hand...

    I use feeds from the BBC because it looked like a fun thing to have a go at. Also, my site is live but my content doesn't change much so I use it to show my site is constantly updating.
