RSS Feeds

What is RSS?

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a technology that lets you subscribe to a website’s latest content without actually having to navigate to the site with your browser. Instead, the site’s frequently updated information, such as news headlines or classified ads, is fed directly into your computer through a “news reader.”

Each brand of news reader may require slightly different steps for subscribing to RSS feeds, but the idea is the same. Clicking on an RSS icon will bring up the URL of that feed in the address bar of your browser. Just enter that URL into the location line of your news reader and then click "subscribe."

For instance, here's the URL for Goucher’s main RSS news feed: http://blogs.goucher.edu/intheloop/category/news/feed/. (Click on this link to see what a raw RSS feed looks like.) To subscribe to it, simply copy and paste the link into the location line of your news reader and then click "subscribe." Now, whenever news items are published to the main news page of the Goucher site, those items will automatically appear in your RSS reader. Simple, really.
