What is RSS?

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is syndicated information provided by site owners for easy follow up of site updates. For instance, you may want to track the updates on current news, stocks, latest technologies, new releases, and weather information from various sites. However, tracking them may be cumbersome as well as time consuming and may exhaust one's thirst for knowledge.

RSS is the solution for business entities to ensure that potential customers receive up to date information on their offerings and it helps Internet users to be up to date in their areas of interest with the least effort. They just need to register the sites with their RSS readers. These readers get their updates (changes from the previous connection), which is presented to them in an e-mail format.

Structure of RSS
RSS is simply an XML file with the header attribute which is followed by a attribute.
