What is RSS feed in blogging?

RSS is a technology that is being used by millions of web users around the world to keep track of their favorite websites. Short for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary, RSS revolutionized the way that users interact with content online.
In the old days, web keeps track all the updates of websites that you had bookmarked in your browser and manually return to them on a regular basis to see what had been added.

Instead of checking back every day to any particular site to see if it's been updated, RSS solve this problem for people. It flips things around a little, which give users the ability to simply subscribe to the RSS feed, much like you would subscribe to a newspaper, and then read the updates from the site, delivered via RSS feeds, in what's called a "feed reader."

It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from your favorite sites. It save time by not needing to visit each site individually. RSS feeds are simple text files that, once submitted to feed directories, will allow subscribers to see content within a very short time after it's updated.

Feed readers work a little like email. As you subscribe to feeds you’ll see that unread entries from the sites you're tracking will be marked as bold. As you click on them you'll see the latest update and can read it right there in the feed reader. You are given the option to click through to the actual site or move onto the next unread item – marking the last one as read.

There are a variety of feed readers available to you for free on the Web that fall into five distinct categories, depending on how you want to read your feeds. Here they are:
  1. Desktop Feed Readers
  2. Web-based Feed Readers
  3. Browser Built-In Feed Readers
  4. Email-Based Feed Readers
  5. Mobile Feed Readers
Once you have your Feed Reader, it is a matter of finding sites that have RSS content and adding their RSS feed to the list of feeds your Feed Reader checks. Many sites display a small icon with the acronyms RSS, XML, or RDF to let you know a feed is available.
