RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication.
Also called web feeds, RSS is the format for syndicating news and other web content. When it distributes the content it is called a feed.
Feeds are an excellent content delivery vehicle for news content. However, a web feed can be used for pretty much any content on your website or blog
Ã‚Â· Recent changes on a page of a website
Ã‚Â· Tech support updates
Ã‚Â· Product news
Ã‚Â· New listings for a realtor
Ã‚Â· Job vacancies
The list is almost endless. Every business has several types of content they can put in an RSS feed
What goes in the web feed?
You can have a partial feed or a full feed.
A partial feed includes a headline, a short summary of the content and a link back to the place on your website where the content resides. When syndicating your content, use an eye-catching title and interesting description of the full content. This way you encourage your readers to click through and read the full article.
Some readers prefer a full feed Ã¢â‚¬â€œ this means that the entire article comes into their news reader and they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to go back to the website at all to get your content.
