RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for distributing and aggregating web content such as news headlines. Using RSS, Web content providers can easily create and disseminate feeds of data that include, for example, news links, headlines, and summaries.
The feeds are provided free of charge for use by individuals and non-profit organizations for personal, non-commercial uses. We ask that you provide attribution to Yahoo! Finance in connection with your use of the feeds.
When providing this attribution in text, please use:"Yahoo! Finance."When providing this attribution with an image, please use the Yahoo! Finance logo included in the feed itself.
We reserve all rights in and to the Yahoo! Finance logo, and your right to use the Yahoo! Finance logo is limited to providing attribution in connection with these RSS feeds.
We are also including the provider of each individual news story in the feed alongside each headline. Please do not alter this for display. We want our news partners to be attributed for their work.
Yahoo! Finance also reserves the right to require you to cease distributing these feeds at any time for any reason.
Typical applications for consuming, viewing, or using RSS include:
News aggregators (also called news readers) download and display RSS feeds for you. A number of free and commercial news aggregators are available for download. Popular news readers include AmphetaDesk, NetNewsWire, and Radio Userland.
Many aggregators are separate,"stand-alone"programs such as those listed above; other services let you add RSS feeds to a Web page. For example, You can add RSS feeds to your My Yahoo! page.
Another way many people use RSS feeds is by incorporating content into weblogs, or"blogs". Blogs are web pages comprised of usually short, frequently-updated items and web links. Blogging as a publishing tool is used for many purposes: traditional journalism, personal journals, group discussions around a topic, and many combinations in-between.
