What is an RSS feed?

What is an RSS feed?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication,” and it allows you to publish a stream of frequently updated information on your Region website, such as blogs, news, and audio and video content.
RSS has become very popular, and you’ve most likely noticed that a lot of websites have the orange RSS icon displayed somewhere on the page. This icon provides a direct link to the RSS feed and is used by readers to receive off-line feeds that run directly on their computers.

One way to easily add these icons to your Region website is to use FeedBurner which will provide your readers with an easy way of subscribing to your RSS feed. Once they subscribe, all of your Region’s breaking news and updates will be sent directly to their inbox.
It will also provide you with the number of readers that have downloaded your RSS, along with other statistics.
