What is RSS Feeds ?

RSS is also called a "feed", "web feed", or "channel", contains either a summary of content from a web site or the full text. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites in an automated manner that's easier than checking them manually. XML feeds from IBMMiddleware allow you to easily syndicate your bookmark collections and bookmarks feeds.

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a lightweight XML format designed for sharing web content. Think of it as a distributable "What's New" for your site. RSS has evolved into a popular means of sharing content between sites (including the BBC, CNET, CNN, Disney, Forbes, Motley Fool, Wired, Red Herring, Salon, Slashdot, ZDNet, and more). RSS solves myriad problems webmasters commonly face, such as increasing traffic, and gathering and distributing news. RSS can also be the basis for additional content distribution services. This site takes the idea one step further by allowing you to syndicate your feeds and view them in weblog links lists, personal RSS readers and many other web based distribution channels.
