How RSS Feeds Work

Are you reading a blog or on a website that has tons of frequently updated information? Afraid of missing something of interest?

One of the easiest ways to get new information first – without filling your inbox with mail – is to create an RSS feed.

Look for the RSS icon  and click it to choose your feed reader. Or you can simply take the URL of the page you are on and add it to a RSS Feed Reader.

Once this is done, you will get an update each time there is new information posted to the page. Depending on how often the content changes, this can be a few times a day or little as once a month.

The best part, is that the RSS Feed “saves your place”. If you come across a website that has a lot of great content, and you want to start from the beginning, an RSS Feed is extremely helpful.

Similar to your inbox, feeds keep track of what you’ve read (or not). That means if your browser crashes mid-page or you aren’t able to read anything for a few days, you won’t miss anything – just go back to your feed and you can easily pick up right where you left off.
