What is RSS ?
So, what is this RSS everyone is talking about ? Depending on who you talk to, it may stand for Really Simple Syndication, Rich Site Summary, RDF Site Summary, or some variation of these. However, at the end of the day, it doesn't matter what RSS stands for ... it only matters what it is and how it can help you.
RSS is a simple, lightweight XML format designed for sharing headlines and other Web content. For publishers (web sites etc), RSS is a great way to present structured information such as news, headlines, updates. For end users, RSS is a simple and convenient, yet very powerful tool for getting content where, when and how they want it.
RSS is great for publishers because it allows them to publish the latest headlines related to their site. End users, or other web sites can make use of the RSS feed to view or display the headlines from the publishers site. When another web site publishes the contents of an RSS feed, this process is called syndication. Syndication of a publishers RSS feed can greatly increase the number of visitors who see the headlines and subsequently visit the publishers site.
RSS is great for users because it is a simple method of obtaining the latest news that is of interest. With a news aggregator such as CastleNews, the user can organize and track all of their RSS feeds in one convenient place.
Use RSS instead of email newsletters to your customers. RSS feeds don't clutter up people's inboxes. RSS feeds don't bounce. RSS feeds don't spam. Only the feed publisher can put information into their RSS feed, so the user only sees what the publisher puts there
