How to use our RSS/News Feeds

RSS is an easy way to check your favorite websites for updates without having to visit them all. Lots of personal portal websites such as My Yahoo!, My MSN and My AOL allow you to add the 'news headlines' from your favorite sites using their RSS feeds. You can also use online feed readers such as GoogleReader or Bloglines, or you can view RSS feeds through some web browsers. Our RSS feeds can also be added to websites and blogs, to display our latest news items on your web pages as a value-added service to your visitors.

Adding our news to your website or blog

You may display our RSS feeds on your website or blog, provided that:

  1. you display the supplied URL (provided in the
  2. element of the feed) for each news item as a working (clickable!) hyperlink,
  3. you properly credit us as the source - either with the logo image we've included in the RSS code, or in text (Use of our logo is limited to the source attribution for the RSS feeds only.)
  4. you don't poll any single RSS feed more oftentimes than once every 60 minutes - we only update our feeds once every 24 hours, so you don't need to check them more frequently than that.*

 

 

 

Failure to comply with these three reasonable rules may result in your IP address being blocked from accessing our web-servers.

We reserve the right to revoke RSS syndication privileges at any time, for any reason (it's unlikely that we will, but we have to cover our backs!).

Let us know if you use the RSS feed, because we (the web developers responsible for this site) are very interested in how our feeds are being used and what we can do to make it easier for other developers to use them.
