Q. What is RSS? How do I subscribe to RSS feeds?


RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It's an easy way for you to keep up with news and information that's important to you, and helps you avoid the conventional methods of browsing or searching for information on websites. Now the content you want can be delivered directly to you without cluttering your inbox with e-mail messages. This content is called a "feed."

In order to subscribe to RSS feeds you must first select an RSS feed reader. Once you have selected and downloaded an RSS feed reader you can now grab RSS feeds from various sites and display them in your RSS feed reader. We recommend watching the following quick tutorial video which explains how to choose an RSS feed reader and subscribe to a number of RSS feeds:
