What Is RSS?
RSS stands for either "Really Simple Syndication", or "Rich Site Summary". It's a way for websites to announce new content available and this content can be viewed in an RSS reader or displayed on other web sites.
RSS feeds are a convenient way to keep up to date with our latest home repair related articles without having to visit our website to check for new content.
Where can I find RSS Feeds?
You can download 411homerepair.com feeds from many locations within our site. You can easily spot the RSS feed as it is designated by an orange XML button. With this, you will get the headline and summary of each new article.
