If you want to keep your blog visitors up to date with your latest posts you should consider adding a WordPress RSS feed button to your blog, it’s nice and easy to do and here’s how you go about adding it.

 Create your WordPress RSS button feed code

Firstly get your code snippet ready that you need to add, with the sample below all you need to do is edit the WordPress RSS feed URL for your blog. WordPress creates an RSS feed automatically so it’s there just waiting for you to use, you just need to add /feed/rss to your blog URL.  For example ours is http://ukwebsolutionsdirect.co.uk/blog/feed/rss

<a href=”URL-TO-RSS-FEED”><img src=”http://ukwebsolutionsdirect.co.uk/img/misc/rss-button.gif”></a>


That will display the following image for your RSS feed:
