Each and everyday number of websites, news services and blogs are adding RSS content. RSS is a method of syndicating content. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication (or Rich Site Summary and also RDF Site Summary). Now a day’s RSS has become the dominant format for distributing updated web contents on the Web. RSS is a protocol, an application of XML which provides an open method for making web feeds (It is a data format used for providing users with frequently updated content.) available from a site in order to provide other people with a summary of the website’s recently added content.

RSS feeds make a portion of a web site available to other sites or individual subscribers. RSS can also be used to describe different type of licensing website content so that other websites can use it. Lots of news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content like headlines, links, and article summaries as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.

RSS is changing the world of publishing news and searching for news. Thus RSS feeds are the most beneficial and faster way of submitting updated content to subscribers.

People who regularly use websites, RSS allow them to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from their interested sites. Users save time by not needing to visit each site individually. We can ensure privacy, by not needing to join each site’s email newsletter. Moreover RSS subscribers can choose the content they wish to view this adds into increase in popularity of the RSS Feeds.
