What does RSS stand for?
RSS "Really Simple Syndication" was created in the 1999 to allow information to be published and subscribed to. RSS basically takes bits of up-to-date information from websites and provides it in concise simple text based format. RSS is commonly used for updated content, blogs, events, and news headlines.
How do I know if a site has it?
They usually have an Orange XML or RSS button on their site. If in firefox, often there is a little orange button in the lower right hand corner.
The difference between search engines and RSS feeds
If you go to any search engine and want to search a topic that had up-to-date information that was released minutes ago, what do you think the likely-hood that you would find it? Pretty low?unless it happens to be breaking news. RSS feeds give you up-to-date information on topics that you are highly interested in for free. Depending on the site google may take days to months to update.
The Advantages of RSS feeds
? An efficient way to scan web content. Scan the headlines in seconds and read only what is of interest to you.
? Updates multiple times a day keeping you up to date on your favorite topics
? Regain control of your online experience. No pop-ups or spam!
? Now you don't have to share your personal information to "sign-up"
? Find a site you like? Don't hide it in your stack of bookmarks to "check back later". If it has a RSS feed, use it now! See new information that is posted daily.
