RSS News Feeds
Aberdeen City Council is pleased to make its latest news stories available via an RSS feed.
What is an RSS Feed?
RSS, which stands for Really Simple Syndication is an XML-based format for distributing content.
The Aberdeen City Council News RSS feed is in RSS 0.91 format. You can use the feed free for personal or non-commercial purposes only.
What can I do with an RSS feed?
You can use a program called a news aggregator or feed reader to gather feeds together into one easy to use page of information. Here is a list of popular readers.
The Hebig blog has a list of web-based aggregators.
Alternatively, you can subscribe to, or create your own, web pages to gather the news feeds together.
If you have a blog or personal web pages, you can use the feed to show our news stories on your own page.
We can't offer advice on how to do this, but resources such as Mnot should offer some assistance.
As we update the new stories on our site the feed is updated automatically, and your feed reader will pick that up and display the newest headlines with links to the full news stories on our site.
Access our RSS feed via your Mobile
You can also access our news feed if your mobile phone has the ability to read barcodes. Capture the barcode shown below and if it has the relevant feature, your mobile will decode the URL and display our news items from the feed.
Using our feed
If you use our feed in a page or blog, we'd be interested to hear from you. Please tell us where the page is and what you are doing with it, by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
