Sixteen pixels by sixteen pixels. By anyone’s definition, that is a small amount of screen real estate, especially on the internet where adding a new page with millions of pixels is just a few clicks away. But no other 16 x 16 square gives you as much bang for the pixel as an identifiable favicon.
Blogs have come a long way from online diaries. What once was perceived as ramblings from a few anonymous people is now a necessary tool for any online business.
RSS now stands for “Really Simple Syndication”. I prefaced it with “now” because the same acronym for the same idea once stood for Rich Site Summary or RDF Site Summary. While the words defining the acronym have changed, the idea behind RSS has not. RSS allows syndication or feeds of your website content. While the purpose of doing this may not be immediately obvious, once you grasp the capabilities and opportunities RSS offers, I think you will understand why it is extremely important for any web developer or site owner looking to increase traffic and expand market penetration. And the beauty of RSS feeds is that it takes little or no extra effort on a web developers part as its included in many of today’s popular development tools.
