Getting Started With RSS
What is RSS?
RSS is a FREE method for alerting you to new content on topics and from sources which you designate. RSS stands for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication depending on whom you ask.
How can RSS help me?
RSS allows you to aggregate content feeds into a single location, allowing you to be notified of new content and easily access all recent content from those feeds. So rather than checking dozens of web pages and sites throughout the day, you can look in one location and see all of the newest content from your feeds!
What tool do I need to use RSS?
Users have reported good results with a variety of RSS readers. Click here

How do I add a feed to my RSS reader?
Go to http://rss.scout.com/rss.aspx?s=143&p=18
and click on any topic feed in which you are interested. The web page will display recent headlines for that particular feed in XML format. Now, just copy the web page URL (which will be formatted like "http://rss.scout.com/rss.aspx?&...") and paste that URL into your RSS Reader. That's it, you now have added the particular feed to your RSS reader.
Do you have any additional technical detail?
Scout.com uses a RSS 2.0 XML feed. All supported feeds are listed in our directory at http://rss.scout.com/rss.aspx?s=143&p=18
