What in the World Is RSS?

RSS is one of the commonly misunderstood web technologies that is widely embraced in modern times. Many people have seen icons on websites offering RSS feeds, and many websites offering RSS reader software. But, what exactly is RSS Western Mark, what is it for, why is it so important and why do so many websites want to use it?

RSS stands for really simple syndication, and it is in fact just that RSS uses XML, a structured way of presenting data based off of HTML upon which websites are built, to convey updates in a minimalist style.

The basic idea is that when a website receives an update or new post, it will simply transmit and RSS sequence which a reader will then receive, if a subscription exists. Inside this RSS feed, there will be a summary of what the update contains, and any other knowledge which the RSS reader should display to attract the users attention. This saves a user from having to systematically check their websites on a daily basis, waiting for sites to load to see if anything new has been posted. This saves time, and centralizes the management of websites that users read on a daily or even more frequent basis.

The advantages for webmasters is that they can make sure that their users and readers see their updates the moment they are posted. This is similar to subscribing with social network sites, or places like YouTube, where users receive e-mail notifications when individuals or producers they are watching post updates.

Therefore, while RSS is. It is heavily used, as many other newer web technologies, it is continuing to grow in use, and will see far more mainstream applications in the foreseeable future. Therefore, it is a good idea to learn RSS 2.0, the most current version of the protocol.

People wishing to enter into web design, Internet marketing or wish to run a website themselves would do well to acquire some form of RSS 2.0 certification. If they wish to get their users attention whenever they post something vital, this is the most efficient way to do it. Companies that run websites understand this, as do producers and people who wish to do online marketing. Therefore, regardless the job market conditions at any time, an RSS 2.0 certification is a valuable addition to a resume. It will improve employability, and add to job security.

Also, for people wishing to run web-based businesses or other forms of online work, RSS 2.0 is a very useful way to maintain contact with users, and ensure that updates are seen. It also reduces the amount of bandwidth used by viewers and users frequently reloading their webpages, to see if updates exist.

The best way to learn RSS 2.0 is through online certification. Going online for your RSS 2.0 certification offers conveniences that a traditional classroom environment could not. Online certification allows a user to learn a new skill from the comfort of their home, on their own schedule. This eliminates classroom schedules, commutes and costly tuition.

There are many online certification providers, but not all of them are the best or the most affordable. Like any market, online certification is a competitive place. Many companies will claim to be better than others, or more affordable than others. But, only one can be either of these things, and unlike in most markets, one company is in fact, both.
