What is RSS?
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) means that a Web site or blog allows applications known as feedreaders to access it automatically for new content. So, rather than having to check Web sites manually each day for new content, an RSS "feedreader" compiles all the latest headlines and excerpts from your favorite Web sites that have enabled RSS. This is displayed to you with links, headlines and an excerpt (or the entire contents) of the post or article.

Watch the short "RSS in Plain English" video below to get a better understanding of RSS or simply click on the orange RSS icon or iGoogle/My Yahoo! icon above to subscribe and add to your feedreader or your personal web page like iGoogle or My Yahoo!.
If an RSS feed is available on a site, it is usually identified by an "RSS" or "XML" icon or link. An RSS feed is an XML-based format, so either of these links/images will generally provide an RSS feed.
The tools called "feedreaders" (or newsreaders, news aggregators, newsfeed reader programs, RSS readers, etc.) come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Many feedreaders are free. Some are Web-based readers and others are available as desktop software that you download and install on your computer.
After checking specified sites or blogs for any updates, feedreaders display the new post and a link to it, with an excerpt (or the entire contents) of the post.
In order to get RSS feeds, you must add the link of the RSS feed from the blogs and Web sites that you are interested in to your feedreader.
One simple way to add RSS feeds to your feedreader is to right-click on the "orange RSS feed icon" and select "copy shortcut" or "copy link location." (Using a Mac? Click and hold or control-click instead of right-clicking.) Go to your feedreader of choice, paste the link into the relevant spot and you're set. The feedreader will inform you when there is any new content for that particular RSS feed.
