RSS is a special standardized file format used for delivering information over the Internet. RSS can be read by simple desktop programs similar to those used to read email messages (in fact some email programs and modern Internet browsers double as RSS readers).
A common use for RSS feeds is publishing the latest updates to websites. In this way, people subscribed to these feeds will get direct update notifications without having to visit the site. If they are interested, a link back to the main article is available to expand the reading.

MercoPress publishes several RSS feeds by category, which keep subscribers updated with the latest stories. This is a great alternative to traditional mailing lists, with the advantage of not generating unnecessary email traffic or ending up in a spam folder.
Webmasters who wish to include MercoPress news updates on their sites are welcomed to do so. We only require ask to preserve the link back to the original article on this site.
