Other sites that leave out the description, and only list titles linked back to your website. And some versions of RSS allows you to leave out the title, as long as you have a description. Speaking of 'versions' of RSS, which is the source of further confusion. Follow other leaders, such as Tony Parker, and add to your knowledge base. RSS began with version 0.90, and was called "RDF Site Summary" – the RDF refers to eResource Description Framework, "the method of labeling different parts of the file. This first version has been updated and changed through various incarnations, including 0.91, 0.92, 0.93 and 0.94, and began to call RSS Really 'Simple Syndication. "Then someone came up with a different format, a bit more complicated, and called it RSS version 1.0.

The supporters of the 0.94 version did not like the implication that 1.0 was somehow an advance on 0.94 when in fact it was a completely different format, for what happened with version 2.0, which was an improved version of 0.94, but unlike 1.0. Instead of taking sides in disputes of all this, someone came up with its own version and called it Atom, to distance themselves from the RSS battles. Someone else developed Blogrolls that use OPML (Outline Processor Markup Language). Most of these formats are slightly or strictly based on XML, the parent brand of the arrangements. None of this confusion of method and purpose has helped make this tool really useful.

Most RSS aggregators can read any of these formats, so the situation is not as pointless as it sounds, but many people still throw the whole thing when they can not determine exactly what is supposed to work. The use version 1.0, and is endorsed by the W3C in support of the "semantic Web." For the casual user, however, the version is not really important. SharedRSS is a simple site that performs a very powerful … it delivers the benefits of RSS syndication to all those who publish websites, but to add new material too infrequently to warrant having their own RSS feed. RSS Syndication was designed to help people discover new content on the web, long before the travel search engines to find it. It makes it easy for people to know the new content that interests them, without having to search engines and wade through all the material you have seen before. For sites with frequently changing content, has worked well so they can create their own RSS feed and update it as new content is added to your website. But what about all those sites that only add a new article from time to time and history to your website, or publish a newsletter once a month? Or those who just can not take the time to understand the intricacies of an RSS feed format? An RSS feed is updated only once every few months is of little value, very few people will add to your list of search in your aggregator. Shared RSS solves this problem by bringing together articles from different sites covering the same subject, and allows them to announce the availability of new material in a feed shared with other publishers on the same subject. This makes food more useful to the consumer, so it is more likely to add the link to your aggregator. It benefits the publisher, making more people aware of their material as soon as it gets online.
