What is RSS feed, why and how to subscribe

What is RSS feed

All you need to know about RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is that it’s a feature of a website that allows you to read articles from that website without having to visit it every time.

Why subscribe to RSS

Because it saves you lots of time – instead of checking your 20 favorite websites for news you can subscribe to their RSS feed and read all of the news in one web-based news reader.

How to subscribe

Subscribing is as simple as 1 – 2 – 3

1. Click on the link next to orange RSS button at the top of IELTS-Blog.com right sidebar
RSS Button

2. You will be taken to this page:

FeedBurner Subscription to IELTS-Blog

3. Choose your favorite news reader by clicking on one of those buttons

RSS Readers Buttons


if there is no button for it – choose from the list by clicking on

That’s it – you’re done! From now on your news reader will automatically pick up every new post or article in IELTS-Blog.
