RSS autodiscovery is the process of searching for RSS (syndication of web content) content, which is XML-based content for distribution to websites that is commonly used for news. RSS autodiscovery automatically detects RSS feeds, facilitating user subscriptions.
RSS autodiscovery is a technique that enables a user's browser to locate a website’s RSS feed, regardless of whether it is in RSS 1.0 or RSS 2.0 format. Web administrators can enable RSS autodiscovery on a website by adding a <link> tag to the page's header. This specifies the name and URL of the feed associated with the website.
