RSS Introduction

What is RSS?

RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication (now that's a mouthful…sounds like that old tongue twister, she sells sea shells by the....). From your perspective, think of RSS as an easy way to keep track of the latest updates from your favorite website or news site.  No more subscribing to e-mail lists or sharing your personal e-mail address.

Once you get RSS setup, it's like having your favorite parts of the Web come to you. No need to go out and check for updates all the time. You are notified about new content and you can go look at it with a simple click of the mouse. You can use RSS to get newsfeeds from CNN or BBC, news on upcoming movies, DVD releases …… or updates at The-Natural-Path.com

The-Natural-Path.com has three feeds, each with an area of specific interest. These are:

  • Body Cleansing and Detox – various methods of cleansing and detoxifying your body naturally
  • Diet and Nutrition – updated information on using diet to help maintain your body's health
  • Natural Cures – updates on natural cures for common ailments

The beauty of this is that you are in control. You are notified about new pages and ones that are changed. You decide when to click over to them. When you are tired of a site and no longer want updates, you merely delete the feed from your reader.
