What Is RSS?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication" or "Rich Site Summary". It is a content distribution format that distributes content in a standard (XML) format via news aggregation tools, and services such as "My Yahoo!" and "Bloglines".

RSS benefits both the publisher and the user.

For publishers, it enables them to build a stronger relationship with their existing readership, build content awareness, enhance their brand and drive traffic to their websites easily and with little expense. Furthermore, it prevents their content from being deleted by the SPAM filters if delivered via email.

For users, it enables them to scan the news headlines or brief article summaries and click on those that interest them to read the full text, instead of visiting each individual websites to check out what's new.

How Do I Use RSS?

For users, in order to read the content distributed via RSS, you will need to use RSS Feed Readers or News Readers. There are many Readers available, many of them are free. Most of them are application-based that you need to download and install on your computer, whilst others such as "My Yahoo!" and "Bloglines" are web-based that you sign up for and work within your browser.
