SEO experts know that RSS is indispensable for a highquality internet marketing campaign. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary. Syndication is the process of republishing an article from another website and an RSS feed is a tool for determining when website content has been updated. Why Should I Use RSS? 1. RSS saves time. Instead of bookmarking and visiting each website that interests you you simply log in to your RSS aggregator to see which websites have been updated. 2. RSS allows you to see the latest updates almost as soon as they are posted. 3. RSS takes the hassle out of subscribing and unsubscribing. You choose the websites to which you want to subscribe and you choose when you want to unsubscribe no questions asked. 4. RSS means less mail in your inbox. Although you will be required to provide your email address to use RSS aggregators updates are not sent to your inbox. And because your email address isn’t used to provide updates you don’t have to worry about spam. 5. RSS is a great tool for website publishers as well.

Not only can the publisher can avoid spamming but the publisher is also ensured that his target audience is aware of the new product or service. Are There Any Drawbacks to RSS? 1.
