RSS feeds and syndicating web sites are the new buzz on the web but if you haven't heard of them before now, you're not alone. This is the approach that Ellen Finkelstein takes in her book which introduces readers to what RSS syndication is and how to use it to the best advantage.

Finkelstein begins with an overview of the most popular RSS readers and how RSS feeds can be used to syndicate both personal and business web sites. Next she covers blogs or weblogs and how to market a blog with RSS feeds.

There are several methods for creating RSS feeds from automated tools such as Blooger.comTM to writing your own XML code. She discusses the differences and the how-tos for them all. Finally, she covers how to validate your RSS feed; publish your feed and the many ways to promote it.
