What is RSS?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It allows you to see jobs, news feeds or information in real time, from sites that provide RSS as an option. On SEOVacancies - SEO, SEM PPC Jobs and Careers, once you have carried out a search for a job, you can use RSS to notify you whenever a new job that matches your search is advertised on the site. A discrete window appears on your desktop, a bit like a messenger window, to let you know that a job has been advertised. You then click on the link in the window to go straight to SEOVacancies - SEO, SEM PPC Jobs and Careers to view the job.

RSS readers are freely available for download from the internet as shareware. There are many different providers and SEOVacancies - SEO, SEM PPC Jobs and Careers does not recommend any particular reader. For more information on RSS readers, please visit the links below.
