How not to use social bookmarking links in your RSS feeds April 9, 2007

Posted by Daniel Gardner in Business Thoughts, Internet, Search Engine Land.

I was looking at an RSS feed I received today from Search Engine Land and noticed the disgustingly large footer on the feed (pictured below), I have no problems with people putting a couple of Digg this type links or advertising at the bottom of there feeds but having 17 is just ridiculous, they should put a “share this” type button there that allows people to add the post to there favorite social bookmarking list with only one link required.

And also (again a fault with Search Engine Land) if you are going to put these links down the bottom show the whole article, I don’t want to go onto Digg and see someone digg a story that they didn’t even read the whole way through!

Here is the footer I saw today on the Search Engine Land feed:
