What is RSS?
Have you been wondering about the orange link on some web sites? It's a link to an RSS feed. RSS is a way to publish and distribute content on the Web without using email. Subscribers receive new content whenever they want it, without worrying whether your e-newsletter will make it through their corporate spam & virus filters. RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication. It is what it claims to be: a quick and easy way to create and use "syndicated content" such as news headlines and announcements. Some websites (like this one) use RSS to deliver blog updates and article previews to readers who are simply too busy to browse to our site and dig up the content they are interested in. Other sites use RSS to alert customers of new products, updates, or upcoming events. Want to start subscribing? I useto pull RSS feeds into Outlook and to manage this blog. Learn more about RSS .
