    RSS is a syndication script that allows content to be streamed and remotely hosted.

    It kind of started out on news sites where they could syndicate their news content across the web.

    The content could be syndicated and embedded on webpages or people can use newsreaders to keep up to date.

    They've become very popular with blogs. Where people can submit their RSS feeds to RSS directories to increase their exposure for their content.

    Also a lot of web 2.0 sites allow you to insert your RSS feeds into their sites so your content on your blog can stream on a specific Web 2.0 site.

    Very powerful stuff.

      Blogger automatically generates a feed for every post I think.

        Oh to answer the second part of your question I don't believe you can segment out specific content with most RSS feeds.

        Another words if you have a WordPress blog I do not believe you can only have one specific post show in your RSS feed. It would have to be all or none of the content.

        Now there are RSS feed scripts that you can integrate into your own websites and other applications where you have more control over content that's fed through the feed.

    RSS = Real Simple Syndication. It is a method of enabling the rapid and easy syndication of content from one website (often, but not always a blog) to another. Nowadays often used by people wishing to read content in a news reader/aggregator so the readers may read news and articles from website.

    If you have a blog then you are using rss every time there is a post as blogs usually generate an rss feed automatically.
    You should also look at synndicating your rss feeds to rss aggregators and rss search engines. This works well to get you backlinks and indexing.

      Are you using blogger or Wordpress?

      Your RSS feed is a file itself, once you know how to find the full link to that file, that's the link you use to send to the RSS feed aggregator sites such as FeedAgg.com | The Best Blogs and Feeds on the 'Net - Beta etc (there are many).

      To find your RSS link, if you are using blogger then simply add "/feeds/posts/default" (without the quotes) to the end of your blog url.

      For example if my blog url is:

      karenbloghome.blogspot.com

      then my RSS feed url is:

      karenbloghome.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default

      If you are using Wordpress (self hosted), simply add "/feed" to the end of your domain name.

      For example if my Wordpress site on surfing is:

      www.karensurfingexample.com

      Then my RSS feed link is:

      www.karensurfingexample.com/feed

      Take the RSS feed url and submit it to all the major RSS feed aggregators. Only have to do it one time. Each time you update your blog now, the feed aggregators will capture your updates.

      HTH,
      Karen
