What is RSS?
RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication. RSS feeds are an easy and efficient way to receive notification when new information is available in a specific area of interest.
What Is The Benefit of RSS Feeds?
RSS feeds save time, allowing users to receive notification only when new content is available. Web site visitors choose the information they wish to subscribe to and can unsubscribe from any feed at any point.
How To Subscribe to RSS Feeds
First you will need a RSS feed reader. RSS readers are simply programs that display the contents of an RSS feed in an easy to read format.
There are many feed readers available and many are free. Some readers are programs that you download and install on your computer and others are web-based services that you access with your web browser. A good (and free) web-based feed reader is Google Reader.
The reader that you use, however, in entirely your call, and the process of subscribing will be different for each. There is a list of RSS readers at the DMOZ Open Directory Project.
To subscribe to a RSS feed, right-click on the icon or link and select “Copy Shortcut” or “Copy Link Location” to copy the location URL and then paste it into the appropriate place in your RSS reader. Some readers will auto detect the presence of a RSS feed on a website and you can optionally choose to subscribe.
