Bankrate now offers RSS feeds
Bankrate has created a new way for readers to access
Bankrate's award-winning personal finance stories: RSS feeds.
What is RSS? Really Simple Syndication (RSS)
is an XML-based format that offers a new way for Bankrate's headlines
and story descriptions to be delivered online.
How does RSS work?
To use RSS, you need a reader. The reader will search
out the stories you specify and then download and display the RSS feeds
for you. We have a list of some of the readers below.
How does it help?
Let's say you are in the market for a new home and
have been searching around the Web looking for information. Subscribe
to Bankrate's mortgage news feed and each time we publish a new story
on mortgages, the story's headline and a description of it will be delivered
to your computer. You can read the story when it arrives or wait until
Bankrate.com offers daily story feeds and personalized rate information.
Whenever you're online, your reader will scan our lists and deliver to
you only those stories you express interest in reading. With RSS, you
run the show.
Bankrate.com RSS feeds
Copy the URL into your feed reader; to view the current feed, click on
the orange XML buttons. The feeds are free.
If you use the feeds publicly -- meaning, where
anyone but yourself will read them, please credit Bankrate.com. You may
post the headline and the brief description, not the entire story. You
may give attribution as text (Bankrate.com is our site name) or with a
graphic (we offer a small
logo in each feed for this purpose).
Bankrate.com reserves the right to require
you to cease posting the Bankrate.com links at any time for any reason.
