Headlines by RSS
To subscribe to an RSS feed
Find an orange
feed icon on this page, on starbulletin.com, or elsewhere on the web. Right-click on the image and copy the URL.
In your news reader, select the option that adds a new feed or channel and paste in the URL. That's it!
Note: If you try to view the URL in a web browser, it may not display properly.
What is RSS?
(or "Really Simple Syndication") is a quicker, easier way to access the content of web sites you visit most often.
By subscribing to feeds
using a news reader
, you can quickly view the latest headlines and summaries of all your favorite web sites, and then with one-click, view the full-length articles.
Feeds are updated periodically throughout the day, so instead of opening a browser to see if a web site has changed or not, the news reader will let you know by highlighting web sites that have new or updated content.
Note: A news reader must be installed on your computer to view and subscribe to RSS feeds. See Google Directory for a list or use a web-based news reader, like Bloglines, Google Reader, My Yahoo!, My AOL or NewsGator.
For more information about RSS, visit Wikipedia.
