What is RSS?
RSS – which stands for Rich Site Summary, also known as Really Simple Syndication – is a standardised way to create online feeds of regularly published content, such as the articles on our websites. An RSS feed typically contains some or all of the text of an article, along with additional information such as the headline and byline.
Publishers can therefore use RSS feeds to syndicate their content because the file format is compatible with many types of computers and software. Some readers use the feeds to monitor updates from the websites they like or to aggregate content from multiple sites.
