A Quiz: Test Your RSS Smarts - RSS is only...
(Page 2 of 5 )
Question: RSS is only for blogs right? All blogs have RSS feeds right?
Answer: No, and No! While blogs may have helped increase the popularity of RSS feeds, RSS feeds are not specific to blogs. RSS feeds can be used for any type of content not just blogs. In fact, there are probably more RSS feeds available for non-blogs than there are feeds for blogs. Publishers have used RSS feeds for articles, press releases, discounts, podcasts, calendars, alerts and the list goes on and on.
Question: When I add a new item to the feed, do I simply edit the old .rss file or do I create a new one?
Answer: If you are adding content related to the theme of the original RSS feed, you should always expand your existing RSS feed rather than creating a new feed. Do not edit any of the RSS feed's existing items, simply add a new item to the existing RSS feed.
