What is RSS?

RSS (most commonly translated as "Really Simple Syndication" but sometimes "Rich Site Summary") is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format. An RSS document (which is called a "feed", "web feed" or "channel") includes full or summarized content from the pertaining website. In this case, you will receive California Golden Bears news immediately through our RSS feeds.

 

How can I use RSS?
Typical applications for consuming or using RSS include:

- Using a program known as a News Aggregator to collect, update and display RSS feeds

- Incorporating RSS feeds into weblogs

News Aggregators (also called news readers) will download and display RSS feeds for you. A number of free and commercial News Aggregators are available for download. While some of the readers are stand-alone products, sites such as Google and Yahoo now let you incorporate RSS feeds into your own Google/Yahoo page.

How do I use RSS Feeds?

The first step is to choose an RSS reader. Each reader has a slightly different way of adding a new feed, also called a "channel." Follow the directions for your reader but, in most cases, here's how it works:

  • Click on the link or small XML button near the feed you want. 
  • From your web browser's address bar, copy the URL (web address).
  • Paste that URL into the "Add New Channel" section of the reader. The RSS feed will start to display and regularly update the headlines for you
