RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication or it’s sometimes referred to as Rich Site Summary. It’s an XML-based content format for distributing news, headlines, content, etc.
Most popular sites news sites and blogs provide RSS feeds for you to subscribe to. All you need is a feed reader to view its contents.
Feed readers come in all shapes and sizes these days. The Firefox browser has one built right into the Bookmarks feature. I use Google Reader.
You can also create feeds for your own website so your audience can subscribe to them. If you update your content frequently and promote the feed effectively, it can help drive more steady traffic to your website.
Advantages of Creating RSS Feeds
For webmasters this is an excellent way to bring repeat traffic to your site. Think about it….every time a web surfer opens their RSS reader to get the headlines for all the sites they monitor, they’ll also see your site’s updates.
Instead of relying on them to bookmark your site and return at a later date, their RSS reader keeps your site fresh in their minds.
So when they open their reader to check the headlines for CNN, Yahoo or any other feeds they subscribe to, they’ll also get the latest updates from you!
