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. Because RSS is still new, not all websites can publish in RSS. However, there are thousands of RSS sources, and you can find those sources all over the world.

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.

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. 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.

Find and subscribe to syndicated content

Subscribing to a Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feed is similar to subscribing to a magazine. When you subscribe to a magazine, each new issue is mailed directly to you. When you subscribe to an RSS feed, every time a new entry or article is published to the Web, a link to the entry or article is added to your reader.
