RSS/XML feeds by category and location

RSS background
RSS is an acronym with 3 different expansions as mentioned below depending on the service provider inclination and version.

  • Rich Site Summary
  • RDF Site Summary
  • Really Simple Syndication

  • RSS was basically developed and shelved by Netscape and UserLand until its recent popularity.
    RSS is generally transmitted using XML format.

    What is RSS?
    Syndicated content, as explained above, is a popular way to distribute information from web sites. Using RSS, dynamic content can provide its updated entries to a group of subscribers automatically when ever it is requested. Because RSS is still new, not all web sites publish in RSS. However, there are thousands of RSS sources, and you can find those sources all over the world.

    For example, most of the forex exchange rates are delivered via RSS. The recipient has to request for the updated content when its required and the most current copy of the content gets delivered. For such a delivery the RSS authoring site has to maintain a way to generate the content and maintain it when the content is changed.

    Jobshelf.com delivers available jobs as job feeds. The feeds are updated when new jobs are available. The recipient receives the jobs list updated to the hour on www.jobshelf.com

    How is retrieval of RSS different from retrieval of a web page?
    The content in a Web page when retrieved will display to the viewer only in the format it was authored by its author or the generating program. Altering the format of a web page and displaying it are relatively complex. But RSS content can be easily altered by the recipient and displayed in a completely different format.
     
    Example:
    Source URL
    RSS feed
    Modified and delivered content

    How do I use RSS?
    You need an RSS reader, such as
    My MSN or others listed below, to use RSS feeds. RSS readers allow you to find feeds and subscribe to them, so that content is delivered to you.
     
    Jobshelf.com provides context sensitive job feed icons in the right of all the pages. For example, if you are looking for the jobs in Florida the RSS buttons in the right will let you add "Jobs in Florida" to your favorite RSS reader.
     
    After you have subscribed to an RSS feed, jobs will begin to flow to your reader. When you see a job title that interests you, just click it to view the full job from www.jobshelf.com
