    Hi Colin,

    RSS feeds are valuable assets of a site. It helps us to reach our content in a large audience in a number of ways. Just explore Google Feedburner which has limited options, I know. But it is an outstanding tool even today.

    Hi Colin, I agree with you about RSS still kicking. I use Feedly every day as my main curation source for all RSS feeds I follow. Most websites I visited do provide an RSS feed. For those that don’t support it, I either subscribe to their newsletter or I use the “Page Monitor” Chrome extension to watch for updates.

    In my Firefox browser a few yrs ago, I set up RSS subscriptions to all my favorite news sources in my News bookmark folder. Some became obsolete but I could always get a current one — until recently. Now, one by one, most of the news sites have removed or disabled all their RSS feeds. (exceptions: Guardian and NBC)

    I think it has to do with the increasing proliferation of ads on all sites. I hate to just go to their main pages now, because it can take several minutes before I can bring up a story by clicking on the headline. With RSS I can detect the story at a distance and to straight to the story, then click “stop loading” to be able to quickly read the story then move on.

    In shorter terms: They’re killing RSS to promote ads and make more money.

    all the time i used to read smaller articles or reviews which also clear their motive, and that is also happening with
    this piece of writing which I am reading at this place. http://www.mbet88vn.com

    This is really positive. I’m still using RSS and will continue to use it. People love to subscribe to RSS feeds. So, it’s not dead and not anytime soon.

    Thanks for this post!
