1.What is RSS?

RSS stands for "Real Simple Syndication". Through RSS one can distribute a list of headlines, update notices, and sometimes content to a wide number of people. It is used by computer programs which organize those headlines and notices for easy reading.

2. What problem does RSS solve?

Many websites like news sites, community and religious organization information pages, product information pages, medical websites, and weblogs change their content as and when they think necessary. People who are interested in those websites and want to keep abreast with the updated information have to keep checking each website to see if there is any new content. This can become very tedious. Previously this problem was solved by sending email notifications. But a large number of email notifications at the same time from a number of websites can get overwhelming. The emails can be much disorganized and the huge numbers can be mistaken as spam and get deleted by mistake. RSS is a simpler way of notifying the new and changed content. Changes to multiple websites are notified in an organized manner and it is distinct from email.

3. How does RSS work?

The website authors maintain a list of notifications on their website in a standard way. This list of notifications is called an "RSS Feed". People who are frequent visitors to particular sites can check the RSS Feeds to know the updates information on the website. Special computer programs called "RSS aggregators" work round the clock to automatically access the RSS feeds of websites and organize the results. (RSS feeds and aggregators are also sometimes called "RSS Channels" and "RSS Readers".)

4. What information does RSS provide?

RSS provides the basic information in its feeds. A list of items presented in order from newest to oldest constitutes an RSS feed. Every item generally consists of a title and a simple description with a link to the actual webpage. There is also a description which sometimes is the full information you need, or sometimes it is in a summarized form.
