What is RSS?
RSS, or Really Simple Syndication, is an easy way to automatically keep track of your favourite websites. Visitors do not have to surf to individual web pages to see updated information. Rather, they can subscribe to RSS feeds and see updates to multiple websites from one location, usually an RSS feed-reader.
How do I use RSS?
In order to use RSS feeds, you need access to an RSS feed-reader. A feed-reader is simply a webpage that displays the contents of selected RSS feeds. Users must 'subscribe' to the RSS feed using the feeder's built-in functionality, or by 'inserting' the feed URL from the top of the RSS page into the feed-reader.
Certain internet browsers, including Firefox, Chrome and Opera, have RSS functionally built in. Older versions of IE may not.
Where can I find an RSS feed-reader?
There are many different RSS feed-readers available, both online and offline. Among the most popular online are Google Reader, My Yahoo, and Bloglines. You can also download desktop feed-readers that allow you to retain your data and organise it.
