Generating and managing content feeds
RSS Ground uses content feeds to deliver quality content from content providers to the end-users.
Content feed is a conveniently structured self-updating file with fresh and targeted information from a particular content provider.
In RSS Ground you can generate private content feeds - unique content feeds based on your search keywords, content filters, and content sorting.
Or search for public content feeds - original content feeds from various content providers with public access on the Internet.
