RSS (Really Simple Syndication)

Subscribe For Free To Our Headlines 

Here are step-by-step instructions to get news articles from USAWATERSKI.org delivered to you.

1) Get Newsfeed Reader: A newsfeed reader monitors RSS feeds from Web sites and blogs, then displays them in a window on your computer. Some require you to download software, but many, like Bloglines, Google Reader or My Yahoo! work in your Web browser (Netscape or Internet Explorer). Firefox browser users have a newsreader built in. This link takes you to a list of RSS readers, and here's more about RSS.

2) Grab a Newsfeed: Once you have your reader, click on the "RSS" icon. That takes you to a feed page where you'll have one-click buttons for your reader. Now when we update a blog or a news channel, your reader will update with the new headline, too!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Newsfeeds? A newsfeed is a feed of headlines from a Web site that you can subscribe to for free and display in a newsreader. When news updates, your reader notifies you. Many Web sites offer headlines in this format.

Why Should I Use a Newsfeed Reader? Using a newsfeed reader allows you to view headlines from many blogs or news sources in one place. Readers also alert you when new articles on the topics you're interested in are published so you don't have to keep checking your favorite Web sites. Some readers also feature scrolling tickers or integrate into e-mail and Web browsers. When you are alerted of the new article, you can click on a link that will take you directly to the article.

Why Does it Say RSS on the Icon? RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." Recently, other icons have been designed that work for individual newsreaders. For instance, you may see an "Add to My Yahoo!" or a "Sub Bloglines" icon on a Web page in addition to an "RSS" icon. If you have one of those newsreaders, by clicking on the link, the feed is added to your reader.
