What is an RSS feed?
RSS is the term used to describe an XML-based feed system for delivering regularly changing web content in standardized format. RSS feeds contain headlines plus a brief text and a link to the original website so you can decide what content you wish to read in its entirety. RSS feeds provide you with a fast overview of current website content without having to visit the website.
What advantages do RSS feeds offer?
RSS feeds provide information about the latest reports on a specific website. The information is provided free of charge, even if you aren't on the website at the time. You then decide which reports you would like to read in their entirety. Unlike an e-mail newsletter, you don't have to subscribe or unsubscribe and you don't have to specify an e-mail address. There is also no spam risk.
