Tutorial for understanding and finding RSS feeds for websites.

RSS Feeds Get them. Find them. Use them.

What is an RSS feed? RSS stands for Rich Site Summary Its an XML format for delivering regularly changing web content

Why do I need it? ZootRock uses RSS feeds in your Custom Streams to get the latest blog posts and articles from your favorite sites. So for each custom stream feed we need the RSS feed to provide you with that content.

When looking for your RSS Feeds... Do Do Not Use Safari! It is important that you do not use Safari This is because Safari shows RSS feeds in a different format than what we need.
