I am just getting familiar with RSS feeds. Does anyone have any experience with them? I am to the point where I am looking for places to submit my feeds too.

What actually is an RSS feed? (Obviously, I'm not the one to help you, but I'm curious now)

An RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed is a news feed. You create a file on your site in which news portals can grab and then add to their list of news articles. It is a way to get your news out to a bigger audience. You can read more about it at http://www.searchenginewatch.com/serepo ... hp/2175271

The hard thing is look for places to submit your feeds to, especially in the engineering feild.

http://www.syndic8.com is probably the best place to submit your feed. That seems to be the biggest database of feeds, and it's usually the first place I look when I'm looking for feeds on a particular topic...

Basically, RSS feeds are an XML file, that outputs latest news topics, or maybe forum posts, or even search results (what data it outputs exactly is entirely dependent upon the site)...

But, regardless of the actual content, all RSS feeds conform to a certain structure in order to allow other webmasters to place those feeds on their site.

As a live example of an RSS feed, here's the one from my site..

http://www.reptilerooms.com/backend.php

This URL can be used by scripts on other websites to allow the data to be displayed there.

For an example of this, see http://axe.reptilerooms.com

That page pulls feeds from about half a dozen different locations, and displays all the data in a single page so I can quickly view it all at once, instead of having to go to a dozen different URLs, and navigating pages to see what the recent news is.

Great explanation Axe. As I said, I am very new to this. I have everything else covered, I just wanted to know where to submit too. I will add that one to the list.

Its not possible to submit to Google News or anything like that is it?

I'm honestly not sure. I don't know if Google's news is RSS or newsgroups, I've not really had a look at it much, but I will do :)

There is a good explanation of rss at:

http://www.rss-specifications.com/everything-rss.htm

It basically is a standard of delivering content headlines and summaries. Its becoming quite popular as a way to distribute content. We have just released a beta version of an rss feed creation tool, FeedForAll http://www.feedforall.com and I would welcome comments and suggestions from anyone interested in rss or feed creation.
Thank you
