What Is RSS?

You might have heard the word RSS in most of the famous sites.

Every one gets confused what it might be for the first time? So in this post we shall be discussing what RSS really is.
According to Wikipedia,
RSS is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format. An RSS document (which is called a "feed", "web feed", or "channel") includes full or summarized text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship.
The full form of RSS is Rich Site Summary or Real Simple Syndication. As the feed of a newspaper RSS notifies a user about any update of the website which he has subscribed. Each of the visitor subscribed by RSS would be updated immediately about the update of the site. So it is of great value.

What would happen if there was no RSS?
If there was no RSS then the visitors would have the following problems;
  • Bear the burden to check site again and again.
  • The visitors might miss some of the important updates of the websites.
But due to the foundation of RSS it has tweaked the above problems in the following ways;
  • Notify all visitors after the update of the site immediately.
  • Save the time to search for the update.
  • Helps to track the visitors of a specific site.
Subscription via RSS..
RSS provides the facility for visitors to subscribe. Once subscribe the update of that site would be automatically be e-mailed to all of the subscribed visitors. So you see RSS is really a matter of satisfaction.

But how to subscribe via RSS?
Ya, it is a sure question from visitors. The answers for it is that you need to subscribe via e-mail. For it just go to the subscription link or a subscription form of the site and there enter your e-mail.
