We’ve told you before how RSS (really simple syndication) – a technology that allows Web users to receive constantly updated information – can benefit your customers and help get more traffic to your website. But using it can help you too – by saving you time.
RSS delivers updates from your favorite newsletters and news websites into one place: your RSS feed reader. So, by getting set up to receive RSS feeds, you’ll spend less time looking for content and more time benefiting from it.
Here’s how to do it quickly and easily:
- Start by visiting a favorite website that also offers RSS… like www.earlytorise.com.
- Click on the link that says RSS News Feed. On the ETR homepage, you’ll find it on the top right, just under the search box.
- Now, choose the RSS reader you’d like to use. Google’s a good one – and it’s free – so click on the Google icon.
- Google will then walk you through the final steps of subscribing to the RSS feed. If you don’t have a Google account already, you’ll be instructed on how to set one up at this time.
RSS feeds are widely available across the Web, and the set-up to receive them is similar to the one I just walked you through. Using an online RSS reader (such as Google’s) is recommended, because then you’ll have access to your RSS feeds anywhere you go. Just sign onto your account from any computer, and you’ll be able to keep up to date on all the news that’s important to you… in less time and with less searching.[Ed.

The Internet is full of useful tools that can save you time… and even make you money. But sometimes they can seem more complicated than they are. For instance, setting up an Internet business doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. ]
