How To Make Money Using Rss Feeds
You are probably wondering what an RSS feed is, RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It refers to files easily read by a computer called XML files that automatically update information.
This information is fetched by a user’s RSS feed reader that converts the files and the latest updates from websites into an easy to read format. An RSS feed takes the headlines, summaries, and update notices, and then links back to articles on your favorite website’s page.
This content is distributed in real time, so that the top results on the RSS feed are always the latest published content for a website.
