With the growing adoption of RSS readers, Meme Trackers and content being syndicated on 3rd party sites, how your content is ultimately presented becomes increasingly important. What follows are some basic steps to optimize your content for syndication, as well as some more advanced techniques.

Basic Optimization

1. Offer full feeds

2. Image Alignment - lots of themes provide CSS for image alignment. It is useless as soon as your content is being read elsewhere. It doesn't take much code to align an image left or right and wrap text around it wherever your content is being read.
 
<div style="FLOAT: right">Image Code </div>


3. Scraping Friendly Theme

4. Images - Try to include images with every post, but also ensure that the most interesting image appears first on the page.
