    First of all, read about RSS

    basically, RSS feed is a simple XML format file that syndicate your website content. People do not need to visit your website to read the content, they can read from rss aggregater(reader) and get whatever updates of your website.

    RSS helps you to keeps visitors updated about your website content, and attract them to re-visit your site.

    Generally, any website can have RSS feed. You can manually create the RSS file, or use automated script to create it.

    blogline, My MSN, My Yahoo and Newsgator are online rss feed readers. You can use them to read rss feeds online.

    Before you add them to your site, make sure you have a rss feed first. Then replace my feed's url with yours. done.

    you do not ADD rss feed reader, you USE rss feed reader. Basically, rss reader can be divided into online reader and offline reader. You only need a browser for online reader. For offline reader, you need to install the software.

    Software I use to create RSS feeds is listgarden. Free and easy to use. If you use blogs, you don't have to use any 3rd party software to create RSS feeds, but if you create static html site, you have to because it is not automatically created

    It may be worth mentioning that all the big blog software packages (many are free) come with RSS, XML, Atom etc. functionality built in.

    It may be less work to customise a blog to fit your site, than to make your site a blog by programming it manually!

    I'm actually setting up one right now. RSS gets you updated for a site's new content. Microsoft or Linux updates are one of the few points here.
