    What does RSS Mean and how do I use it?

    I've got a blog going on Wordpress, and it has an RSS widget option. No idea what it is or how it is useful or applicable to me. Any one want to help me out with this?

    Basically it keeps you updated on other websites of blog entries, news headlines and audio/video - giving the author's name and publishing date. This can usually be done automatically depending on the RSS. You can choose the sites which you want.

    Wordpress recommends you only publish a summary of your RSS (check your settings), so bots don't scrape entire posts and re-post on spammy sites. RSS is just another way to promote your blog and expose to a larger audience. Submit to no more than the top 1-3 RSS submission sites that match your content, like Technorati or Alltop. Since, Google killed it's Reader, the industry is moving away from this great technology because of the copy and spam problems.
