For over 20 years, IRINFO.ORG has provided RSS feeds for our Tip of the Week, Featured Article, and News columns. Our RSS feeds can automatically deliver timely, relevant content to your website thereby enhancing your professional image and helping to provide better visibility for your products and services.  Best of all, our RSS feeds are FREE

The following is an explanation of RSS and how it works.

What is RSS?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It’s a standardized web feed format used to publish frequently updated content such as blog posts, news headlines, audio, and video in a standardized format. By using RSS feed readers or aggregators, subscribers can receive updates from websites such as IRINFO.ORG. RSS allows for content to be automatically formatted and placed onto a subscriber’s website.

How does RSS work?

IRINFO.ORG maintains a list of news headlines and articles on our website. This list is called an ‘RSS Feed’. You can see the RSS Feed at IRINFO.ORG by visiting: IRINFO.ORG RSS Feed. 

How can an RSS feed benefit me?

As a subscriber to our RSS feed, you can have relevant, non-competitive content automatically delivered to your website on a regular basis.  This helps to keep your website(s) up-to-date and can greatly improve its relevance in search engines such as Google since you are receiving information from an authoritative web resource with substantial history and a reputation for excellence.

Once your website is set up to receive our RSS feed, you will automatically receive content saving you from the drudgery of having to research and post articles on your own.

How can I receive the IRINFO.ORG Feeds?

The first thing you will need is special software called an ‘RSS Aggregator’.  Aggregators are available as website plugins; many are available for free.

Some email programs allow you to receive an RSS feed at the same time that you download your e-mail in case you do not have a website and are just looking to stay current with industry news and developments.

Now I have an Aggregator. What’s next?

Every aggregator is different, but each one will allow you to create incoming RSS feeds that interest you. In setting up your aggregator software you will be given the option to “create a new RSS feed.” This is where you will enter the location of the IRINFO.ORG RSS feed which is listed below:

You simply copy and paste the above line into the appropriate location in your aggregator.

Now you only need to run your aggregator in automatic mode; that is, to have it start automatically when your computer starts. It should then go off to the internet every so often to see if the feed from IRINFO.ORG has been updated. If the aggregator finds an update, it will download the appropriate headline to your computer. Then, when you read a headline that interests you, just click on it and you’ll be able to read the full story.

How can I find other RSS feeds?

When you visit a website that has material that interests you, look for the little graphic that looks like this: rss_xmlbuttonorange

By clicking on that button, you will be taken to the location of the RSS feed for that website. You then enter that location into your aggregator just as you did with the location for the IRINFO.ORG location above.

You may also subscribe to the RSS feed from Infraspection Institute by adding this code into your aggregator:
