An RSS document (which is called a quot;feedquot;, quot;web feedquot;, or quot;channelquot;) includes full or summarized text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship. Web feeds benefit publishers by letting them syndicate content quickly and automatically. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favoured websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place. RSS feeds can be read using software called an quot;RSS readerquot;, quot;feed readerquot;, or quot;aggregatorquot;, which can be web-based or desktop-based. Recommended Link:
