It's Never Too Late To Celebrate Valentine's Day


Blog aggregators, otherwise known as feed aggregators, are applications or softwares that collect headlines of any given site. As long as the requirements are being provided (e.g. site url), the said software should be able to list down the latest contents of the site.

Such aggregators are being used widely in the blogosphere. It keeps bloggers and readers up to date with what's new with the sites that they are following. With that, blogs gain valuable and authentic visitors.

If there's anything I have observed or learned with these aggregators all through out my one year of blogging, it's these things:
  • They seem to have been deemed important for every blog.
  • Can increase traffic.
  • Gain and develop fruitful relationships with readers.
  • Help bloggers with their writings.
  • Provide some earnings (e.g. Google Adsense).
There are a lot of competitive aggregators on the web so it wouldn't be a problem finding one. You would know the best according to the number of people who use it, and the benefits you would get.

I don't know if there's such a thing as a perfect aggregator, but I think it pays to know your needs and wants. Knowing those things can determine the perfect aggregator for you. So you may have to do some extra researching before actually using an aggregator. Remember, quantity doesn't directly equate to perfect. :)
