Free RSS News Syndication Services
The Independent Institute offers the convenience of RSS feed channels which provide a means to view and deliver news or articles that are posted on Independent.org to your website or desktop.
To get started, install an RSS feed reader (a software or online application similar in function to your email programwhere you will see headlines and descriptions in the channels you’ve subscribed to). Then start subscribing! To do so, copy the channel URL into your reader. Once you have subscribed, your reader will automatically check the channel for updates.
Benefits of RSS Feeds
- You are alerted when our site is updated.
- You determine which RSS channel you would like to view.
- A brief headline and description make it easy for you to scan topics.
- The link will take you directly to that article.
