RSS, XML, Atom, Feeds, Syndication Tutorial.

I was surfing all the day to find info for you about those, it's not easy to find a good website or blog on that subject, but finally it's here:

What is a feed?

A "feed" is a summary of Web content that is updated on a regular basis. It allows users to keep informed of a Web site's latest changes. RSS is a format which means Really Simple Syndication (RSS) 2.0.
Feeds help website owners to make content more accessible, and they allow surfers to easily see new content. A summary or "headline" view lets you quickly scan recent content changes, and headlines are linked to their appropriate content.

How to subscribe to this feed?

Before you subscribe to a feed, you'll need an RSS reader or aggregator to view content in RSS. Several free and commercial RSS readers are available on the Internet. Once you have an RSS reader, right-click on an RSS link, copy the URL, and paste it into your reader to display the content in RSS.

I am now studying those feeds, because I saw on almost all the submission websites, that you can use them.
