What is RSS?
(Really Simple Syndication) is a lightweight XML format designed for sharing Web content. Each item contains a title and a link to a URL (e.g. a web page). Other information, such as a summary, the date, and creator's name may also be available. RSS files are used most commonly for news and blogs. When a website has an RSS feed, it means it is syndicated. When an RSS enabled website updates their content, the change is "fed" to sites which have subscribed to that page. There are various other syndication formats besides RSS, such as Atom, but RSS is the most widely used and supported today. RSS files do not have a common file extension, but they frequently end in .xml, .rss, or .rdf. Other extensions may also be used.
