What is an RSS Feed?

Wikipedia defines a Feed Aggregator:

Aggregators (aka: Feeds) reduce the time and effort needed to regularly check websites for updates, creating a unique information space or "personal newspaper." Once subscribed to a feed, an aggregator is able to check for new content at user-determined intervals and retrieve the update. The content is sometimes described as being "pulled" to the subscriber, as opposed to "pushed" with email or IM. Unlike recipients of some "pushed" information, the aggregator user can easily unsubscribe from a feed.

Feeds automatically deliver regularly updated blog content as well as the Martenson Report, as it posted to PeakProsperity.com. By subscribing to the RSS Feed, you'll be immediately updated when new content is added to our site, and you'll be able to view this summarized content in one place, like your personal homepage.

Our RSS Feeds make it easy and convenient for you to stay on top of newsworthy changes in the global financial and oil markets: Subscribe!


How Do I Subscribe to It?

Step 1:

If you don't already have a feed reader, you will need to download one. If you already have one, please skip to Step 3.

Different feed readers are available, many for free. Some of the most popular News Readers available can be downloaded by clicking on the following links:


Step 2:

Install your Feed Reader. Follow the instructions for whichever Reader you have chosen. This step generally only takes a few moments to complete, depending on which operating system and which reader you will be using.


Step 3:

Once you have installed your Feed Reader, you are ready to subscribe to PeakProsperity.com's RSS Feeds! Simply right-click on one of the feeds and select "Copy Shortcut" or "Copy Link Location."

Follow the instructions for your particular feed reader to paste this location (URL) where it asks for the URL of the feed you wish to subscribe to. You can also subscribe to RSS feeds by dragging the URL of the RSS Feed into your Reader, or by cutting and pasting the URL into your News Reader.


Other Options:


Some recent versions of popular web browsers also support feeds directly.
In these browsers you can simply click on the feed link to view or subscribe to it. If your browser supports feeds directly, you will not need a feed reader. You can determine if your browser supports feeds without a reader by simply clicking on a Feed link. If it displays unformatted content, you will need a reader.

Live Bookmarks is another option, if you are using Firefox or IE7.

If you have Live Bookmarks, simply click on an RSS icon and select the feed you wish to subscribe to. You will see an Add Bookmark dialog box. Select "OK" and you will see Live Bookmarks with the rest of your bookmarks.
