What is RSS?

RSS helps you keep up to date on announcements and news from your favorite web sites. If a site has an RSS link on it, you can 'subscribe' to it with your favorite news reading programs. Instead of visiting each web site to see if something is new, your news reader will list the latest updates and news from all your favorites web sites all in one place. A real time saver.

Examples of news reading programs include: Bloglines, My Yahoo and Google Reader.

RSS Feed This icon is often used to indicate a page has an RSS feed. Click on it and copy the URL for the page into your news reader. That's how you subscribe to an RSS feed. For more on using RSS, read the help pages in your newsreader program.
