What is RSS?

RSS is a machine-readable content-syndication specification. This allows content to be retrieved by computer programs (called 'readers' or 'aggregators', see below) that then deliver it to you. In other words, instead of going to a website to read the latest news, the content comes to you. Even better, RSS allows you to bring together the content from several different sites in one single location (a single web-page or a desktop application).

RSS comes in two main flavours, RSS 1.0 (RDF or RichSite Summary) and RSS 2.0 (Really SimpleSyndication). Although there are key differences between the two standards, in most instances the distinction is transparent to the end user.

Check out the online video RSS in Plain English. It does a fantastic job of explaining RSS and RSS readers.

How do I use it?

RSS content is commonly referred to as a 'feed'. This is simply an XML (EXtensible Markup Language) file containing a list of available content. Simply copy (right-click the link and select 'copy link location') and paste the feed's web address into your favourite reader to subscribe. Once subscribed, the reader software periodically checks the feed for new content and downloads any updates it finds.

Which reader should I use?

There are numerous readers available for different platforms. Some are web-based and don't require you to install any software on your machine. Others are integrated into browsers or are stand-alone programs. Choose the one you are most comfortable with and it will likely be compatible with the majority of RSS formats.

What version of RSS does CNW Group use?

CNW Group supports RSS version 2.0. It is the most popular format with the widest support among both RSS distributors and client programs.

Members of the news media are reminded that CNW Group RSS feeds are not delivered in real time. You may experience a maximum delay of up to 15 minutes. As such, RSS feeds should not be considered an equivalent to the dedicated CNW Group feed received by your news organization.
