RSS feed RSS Help

What is RSS?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". It is a way to receive a list of headlines, update notices, and content from your favorite websites and blogs. RSS uses technology that allows you to subscribe to information in "RSS Feeds" and have it delivered to you on a regular basis using a "feed reader". Feeds can also be viewed without subscribing using most modern web browsers.

How do I subscribe?

Since RSS feeds use different technology than regular web pages, they are best viewed using special software called feed readers. Many feed reader software programs and services exist, but they all allow you to add feeds by copying and pasting the feed address.
