What's RSS?

Watch a video tutorial video about how RSS feeds work

An RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed is a way for people to keep track of new content on numerous websites without having to visit each individual site.

The RSS news feed concept is very similar to the one of the email newsletter. The major difference is delivery method: while email alerts are being “pushed” to your mailbox, the RSS content is being “pushed” to your RSS reader or “aggregator” such as Google Reader or Netvibes via an RSS subscription set up by you. For more information, please visit the Wikipedia entry on RSS.

Important note for Google Chrome users: you need the RSS extension for Google Chrome to properly view and subscribe to RSS feeds. More information here.
