Real Simple Syndication (RSS)

What is an RSS feed?

An RSS (Realy Simple Syndication) feed is a way of staying in touch with the  web site without having to visit the site regularly and guess at what might have changed. It works a lot like email in that the changes are listed and new ones are highlighted as “unread” and you don’t have to sign up to be on an email notification list.

  • Find the RSS Feeds folder in the Personal folder.
  • Right click on the RSS Feeds folder and select the “Add a new RSS Feed…” line.

  • Click on “Add to Chrome” and install it.
  • Click on the “+” button and add the following URL: and click “Search”.
