What are RSS/XML news feeds?
RSS — “Really Simple Syndication,” also called “Rich Site Summary” — is a popular way to share online news and video updates so people quickly know what’s new. In most Web browsers, clicking on an RSS feed will simply give you a screen full of code; that’s raw XML. To make sense of it, you’ll either need to download a news reader program or use a Web site which collects and displays RSS feeds.
If you need a desktop software application, search online for available news readers or aggregators. Some of these programs are free, others cost a small fee, but note that we don’t make any of these products. New programs change and become available all the time, and we are not responsible for the use of such software products or the content of external internet sites.
Another option is to subscribe to our news feeds through a customized Web page such as MyYahoo, AOL, My MSN, your personalized Google page, Bloglines, Newsgator, Pluck, or Rojo. These Web sites allow you to collect RSS feeds from accross the Web and review them in all in one place.
How do I add your feed to a news reader?
Drag the orange XML icon of the feed you want shown at right into your news reader. Chances are the program will ask you if you want to subscribe for updates to the feed. If that does not work, click the XML icon and, from your Web browser’s “Address” or “Location” field, cut and paste the Web address link into the new feed setup screen of your news reader. You can customize how much or how little of each feed you will see, as well as how often your feed updates. See your program’s READ ME help files for more information.
How do I add news feeds to my blog?
Several blogging sites and programs, such as Yahoo 360 or WordPress, allow you to add RSS feeds to appear in a list next to your own posts and comments. Check out your blog’s documentation for more specific details.
