What Is RSS?

If you have been seeing orange RSS or XML buttons more and more, not knowing what they were, we've got a simple explanation.

It's a recent "big thing" -- you can use it to get newsfeeds from CNN or BBC, as well as just about anything else, including news on upcoming movies, DVD releases, medical updates, your favorite books, etc.

Once you get started, it's like having your favorite parts of the Web come to you. No need to go out and check for updates all the time.

No more bookmarks for me!

"RSS" means "Really Simple Syndication." But that is just a fancy way of saying that you can keep up with all the updates to Marketing Tools For Real Estate without having to check the site every week to see "what's new." Whenever I put up a new page ("BRAND NEW") or update an old one ("UPDATE"), I release it through RSS. And...

I also include some new Realtor tips and tools from time to time. These are the extra-special Realtor ideas that have been provided by people who understand the real estate business from different perspectives, such as developers, attorneys, accountants, Realtors, builders and a bankers, willing to share their experience. As a result...

There are so many terrific things we share here. People love "stumbling" upon those pages. Now, no need to "stumble" upon them...

I can share with you from time to time through RSS. This gives you our "secret/best real estate tips and tools" without you having to spend hours on the site or searching.

Yes, RSS is amazing. If you can't tell, I'm completely wow-ed by it. No e-mail. No spam. It's so easy to subscribe and unsubscribe. If you get tired of me crying you just have to delete the feed.

It's awesome!

And once you start, you'll soon be tracking all your other favorite interests and news in the world.
