What is Syndicated Content (RSS)?

Syndicated content, otherwise known as Really Simple Syndication (RSS), is a popular way to distribute information from websites. Using RSS, a news site or a blog can feed its news articles or entries to a group of subscribers automatically. When you subscribe to a given website's feed by using a feed reader, you'll receive a summary of new content from that website.

How do I use RSS?

You need an RSS reader to use RSS feeds. RSS readers allow you to find feeds and subscribe to them, so that content is delivered to you. To subscribe to an RSS feed takes only a couple of clicks, and does not involve any registration process or fee. After you have subscribed to an RSS feed, headlines will begin to flow to your reader. When you see a headline that interests you, just click it to view the full article.

RSS Readers

There are many different Really Simple Syndication (RSS) readers available on the Internet. Some readers are designed with user interfaces that resemble e-mail inboxes instead of browsers. Whatever your preference, all RSS readers are used to collect, update, and display RSS feeds.
