What is RSS?

Compliments of our National Institute of Health and Human Services


RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It’s an easy way for you to keep up with news and information that’s important to you, and helps you avoid the conventional methods of browsing or searching for information on websites. Now the content you want can be delivered directly to you without cluttering your inbox with e-mail messages. This content is called a “feed.”

RSS is written in the Internet coding language known as XML (eXtensible Markup Language).
