What is RSS?
stands for Really Simple Syndication, a format for distributing Web
content.† Content syndicated as RSS may
vary, but the format is most often used to distribute materials that are either
dynamic or frequently updated, such as news stories, blog entries, or
discussion forum comments. Many Web sites offer RSS feeds; examples include
portals such as Yahoo and Google, as well as many personal blogs.† By providing RSS on a Blog, users can receive
current information without having to visit the original site. All thatís
required is a Web based newsreader platform or installed newsreader software.
Many recent browsers such as Mozilla and Safari will display a feed icon
allowing a user to directly add a feed to a newsreader.
What will my feed contain?
An RSS feed
will display the most recent entries from the original site. The feed will
change as new content is generated.†
