A web feed (or news ) is a data format which helps you to track news and huge number of blogs through a feed reader like Google Reader. A web feed may be available in many formats such as RSS, Atom etc but they all do the same thing.

The photo above shows the icon/symbol which is used to represent feeds on any website, blog etc. It can come in slight variations too as you can see on the right side of this blog.

If you are new to the concept of RSS feeds ,watch this excellent
video, explaining it in plain English .
