How Do RSS Feeds Work?
More and more, websites are making this process simple for you. When you are on your favorite website, look for a small orange icon with the letters RSS or XML. When you click on that icon, you add that web address or link to your reader. You can also search for a website within your RSS reader and add it to your feed.
The beauty of RSS feeds is they are typically very customizable within your reader or from the website you’re following. For example, you could choose to be updated only on the sports or art section of your local newspaper.
You can also select a specialized Google news alert to be delivered to you via your feed. Set search parameters on Craigslist for something you’re hoping to find, and receive updates that match your search qualifications.
Even with countless ways to receive information these days, the RSS feeder still holds its own as an important way for you to stay updated on what’s important to you.
Customizable to your tastes, an RSS feed ensures you don’t miss or forget the information that is important only to you.
