Affbuzz.com – Multiple RSS feeds in one easy location

affbuzzI don’t know about you… But in my spare time I like to see what other people are talking about.  I like to read blogs and forums and find out what the “buzz” is in the Internet/Affiliate Marketing community.

Affbuzz.com was created by Justin Barr of San Francisco, CA. A few days ago I asked Justin why he created the site and this was his reply: “CAUSE I’M GOOD LIKE THAT!”… No I’m just kidding I never asked him that.  But I must say… I wish I was the one who thought it up.

Affbuzz is where I can go in the morning for 15 minutes to see what everyone else in the IM/AM blogosphere is talking about.  I can immediately see which posts are new so that definitely saves me some time. I can also see what the buzz is in certain forums.  The best thing is… I can do it all without opening up 100 different windows.

If you have a blog that you would like to see on affbuzz.com don’t be afraid to let Justin know.  Infact… I’ll help you out. Click Here and make a suggestion to Justin.

Here is my own little suggestion for Justin (Lets see if he takes this and runs with it or runs the other direction).  Set up CATEGORIES!.  Tabs at the top of the page that people can click to see just forums, PPC blogs, SEO blogs, Justings “Fav” blogs, Corporate blogs (CPA Networks and Search Networks).  Just a suggestion.  Might make my morning go a little quicker.

Justin you out did yourself on this one.  Excellent job and keep up the good work!

You’ve just saved me a lot of work, and lots of missed stuff due to me being unable to check on all the RSS feeds that inhabit the toolbar of my browser. Affbuzz.com is really worth a visit, and believe you me, you’ll go back for more!

I heart Affbuzz! I think adding categories is a great idea and would really help with the sorting.

Kris said “I wish I was the one who thought it up.”

I think I was the one that thought up the idea, over 4 years ago.

Check out AffiliateMarketingBuzz.

I display the Cashtactics blog and most of the other leading affiliate blogs in an easy to read format.

Sorry couldn’t resist, given the name similarity. ;-)

Kris, thanks for the write-up. I’ll get working on the categories as a few people have mentioned that now.

Linda, awesome site; I hadn’t seen that/heard of it prior to today, and it’s definitely well done.

Meh, Google Reader is better.

That’s a nice cool and simple looking site. A bit like pop urls but just for IM.

Kris,

Thanks for the cool resource. It’s pretty sweet.


Am I the only one getting an error when clicking the Affbuzz link? Maybe the site is down?

Kris, thanks for the resource. I wonder if their are similar sites for other blog topics?

This is a great service. At home I use my built-in rss reader but when I’m at work I usualy use this – it’s easier to just enter a website than to import all the rss addresses.

Thanks for sharing your suggestions I’ve checked it out. So what’s the big deal… and what’s the entire buzz about, anyway?

I have seen similar sites like this in the past, the only suggestion I would make to Justin, is to perhaps instead of everything being fixed in one place, have the option for people to move things around and setup the screen to be displayed the way they want to. They can setup the order of priorities on the website.

Till then,

Jean

Affbuzz is a great website to keep up with most everyone that is important in the industry for sure, and even learn of some new people too! I like the comment that Jean gave I feel he makes a good point with adding more customizations with the website to personalize it to the person that lands on the website. There are always pros and cons to doing it though… but I believe they are mainly pro.

WOW this is awesome! Now just to RSS incorporate these feeds into my twitter feed…


Thanks for the post. AffBuzz will be a real time saver for me.

No he didn’t take your advise. I agree it needs categories. Great idea though I just bookmarked the site.

That’s a really cool site, saves me a lot of time when I’m looking for the latest affiliate buzz.
