2. Choose keyword phrases that are valid to your website.
3. Link directly to deep pages, this is more helpful as far as seo goes, than simply linking to your home page, but you can link it up as well.
4. Place these links in the very first line of your blog posts.
5. Syndicate your RSS feed far and wide!
O.K. It sounds pretty simple right?
Of course it does, it is simple. There is nothing magical about this RSS technique, besides the fact that most people do not do this. In effect what you are doing is assuring that your extra (free back link) is in a section of your post that will be guaranteed to be syndicated no matter what site or service picks up your feed.
There are some RSS websites and services that will syndicate your complete post and content, if you feed is setup to distribute the full post. However, most of the RSS distribution services will only show the first few lines or so many characters of your post. If you add the link of your choosing right off the bat, you will assure that it get posted on any site that is using or displaying your feed. Since many of the most popular RSS sites have a high page rank, Google will be sure to love these links.
