NAFWA-Rich Site Summary Report

RSS For Your Website

What is RSS?

Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a format that syndicates news feeds and other news-related content from websites. It displays headlines from major news sources and updates on a regular basis. It also allows for other websites interested in the content on your website to have it put on their webpage. This is known as weblogging. Website owners have found that RSS really drives traffic.

RSS Functions

  • Updates top news headlines automatically and as soon as they are available
  • You can choose what you want to be displayed (specific to your website)
  • News can be emailed or received through a desktop program
  • Saves old news in an archive on your website
  • Make your own blog for others to feed onto their website
  • Saves time and money. It is free.

Setting It Up

There are two ways to do it: through an RSS-aggregator or through an online blog service. RSS-aggregators are programs that you install on your computer, while a blog service is web-based. They both work the same, but aggregators are generally much easier to use. RSS-aggregators will scour the web and send a little pop-up or email when something new is found. You can then decide if you want it to be updated on your website or not. If you do, all you have to do is click a button and it will update your news box or section immediately. This saves time, money, and setup is easy. Also, there are several free programs that can be downloaded.
