What Is RSS And How To Subscribe


You may have been seeing those little orange RSS or XML buttons around the Internet. If you were wondering what they are...

It's "the next big thing" -- you can use it to get newsfeeds from CNN or BBC, as well as just about anything else, including news on upcoming movies, DVD releases, your favorite musician's tour updates, etc.

Once you get started, it's like having your favorite parts of the Web come to you. No need to go out and check for updates all the time.

"RSS" means "Really Simple Syndication." What it means to you is that when you subscribe to a site that has an RSS feed, you can keep up-to-date without having to check the site every day or week.

Most new browsers offer a built-in RSS reader. You may see an orange icon (blue for Safari browsers) located on the right side of the status bar at the top of the screen. In this case, you can subscribe to your desired RSS feed simply by clicking this icon. If you are using an older browser which doesn't offer this feature, keep on reading...

Here's how to add an RSS feed to your browser:

Download a free RSS Reader first. This is special software that reads the RSS feeds...

Windows -- RssReader

Mac -- NetNewsWire

Once you're set up, here's all you have to do...

Right-click (control-click for Mac users) on any orange RSS button on a site, blog or news source that interests you. Start by right-clicking on the orange button below. Then...

copy and paste Select Copy Shortcut ("Copy Link to Clipboard" for Mac, "Copy Link Location" for Firefox browsers, "Copy Link" for Safari browsers), and paste that URL into your RSS Reader.

And that's it! You're subscribed.

Right-click and get started.
