What is RSS?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication (RSS). It is an XML-based format that allows online content to be retrieved by computer programs many times called 'readers' or 'aggregators' that then deliver it to you in one easy to read place. So, rather than going to 10 different news sites to read the latest articles, you can sign up for their RSS feeds, use a reader and access all the content in one place.
RateSupermarket.ca supports RSS version 2.0.
How does RSS work?
To access RSS, you need a reader, which will continually search for the stories from the sources you specify and download and display the RSS feeds for you.
There are many RSS readers such as Google Reader, that are web-based and don't require you to install any software on your machine. Others, such as Mozilla FireFox supports RSS feed bookmarking, are integrated into browsers and still others, such as Mozilla Thunderbird, are stand-alone programs.
How does RSS benefit me?
If you are looking for a new home and are scouring the web for information and would like to be up to date on the latest mortgage news, rates and rate changes, then you can subscribe to RateSupermarket.ca's blog and latest rates feeds and every time we publish a new story or a lender or broker changes one of their rates on the site, the story's headline and description will be delivered to your computer, and be ready for you to read.
How to use RSS feeds
Simply click on the URL of the feed you're interested in the box on the right entitled "RateSupermarket.ca's RSS Feeds".
Copy the URL into your feed reader; to view the current feed, click on the orange XML buttons.
Our RSS feeds are free.
T & C's
If you use the feeds publicly on your website or blog (ie. anyone other than yourself will be reading them), please credit RateSupermarket.ca. You may post the headline and the brief description, however, please don't use the entire story.
