About RSS feeds

An RSS feed is a way of delivering regularly changing web pages. Many websites and blogs use RSS feeds to update their readers and those interested in their content.

An RSS feed lets you know when new content has been added to a website, as soon as it’s published. This means you don’t have to keep checking the website for new information; it is delivered straight to you.

It is really easy to subscribe to feeds; all you need is a tool called a ‘RSS feed reader’. You can download a reader from these websites: FeedReader, NewsGator, and Google Reader. Once you have downloaded a reader, you can subscribe to RSS feeds.

You can also use Microsoft Outlook to subscribe to RSS feeds and Internet Explorer 7 and above.

All you need is the page address from the address bar at the top of the page. Ignore anything else that appears.

Now copy that address into your RSS feeder and you have subscribed.
