    When I click the live feed option,the feed url says it is spidered on a certain date.However when i click on the details all the feeds listed as "never" spidered.

    And do you use the advance option where you change the Link title or keep it as default?

    I think I'm getting my links indexed successfully using this service although Im not really sure how it works.Does it take time for it to be seen on yahoo site explorer even though it is listed as "live"?

    Thanks a lot

    We ping at the feed level for all accounts, but only ping at the link level for paid accounts. So the free guys rely on Google to visit when it wants to, while we ping individual links for the paid guys. Obviously you can see that Google doesn't really like crawling RSS feeds (and is why we ended up making the service for our own SEO clients).

    I always run with the straight default settings and nothing else. You can customize if you want.

    It'll help with indexing, but higher quality links will help just as much or more. Linklicious does best at link awareness since most weak links don't get found because they are so poorly linked.

    We also integrate with a few cool partners like LinkPushing to maximize the goodness that they give you.

    Extropy, I'm hoping you can answer a quick question for me. When a feed is live, does it continue to be sent out and crawled? Or is it a once-off once the spider has crawled?

    I'm wondering if I should remove the live feeds when adding more feeds to the scheduled listing, to avoid too much activity at once.

    Thanks.

    We ping until it's crawled and then we stop. There really is no down side to continuing to keep the feeds live that I can think of. Google recrawls a percentage of them weeks/months later so that's a reason to keep them up.

    And it's good to worry a bit about activity level. We've had a few people complain about dropping 100 or more in the SERPs after hitting a site with hundreds/thousands of links. Use the drip feeding! :)

    It's definitely worth investing in the paid accounts. I combine linklicious and linkpushing, and get excellent results.

    Thanks for that! I will remove them from the live section once they appear as being spidered. Seeing as it won't make a different in sending out more pings, it will make it easier to monitor.
