Typically the feed comes from the same place as the website. Not all websites, however, provide a feed. Sometimes third parties will read the website and create a feed for it by [[Web scraping|scraping]] it. Scraping is controversial since it distributes the content in a manner that was not chosen by the authors and may bypass web advertisements.   −   − ==Technical definition==   − A web feed is a [[document]] (often [[XML]]-based) whose discrete content items include web links to the source of the content. [[News]] websites and blogs are common sources for web feeds, but feeds are also used to deliver structured information ranging from [[weather]] data to [[Top 40|top-ten]] lists of hit tunes to [[search engine|search]] results. The two main web feed formats are [[RSS (file format)|RSS]] and [[Atom (standard)|Atom]].   −   − "Publishing a feed" and "syndication" are two of the more common terms used to describe making a feed available for an information source such as a blog. Web feed content, like syndicated print newspaper features or broadcast programs, may be shared and republished by other websites. (For that reason one popular definition of RSS is Really Simple Syndication. )   −   − Feeds are more often subscribed to directly by users with aggregators or feed readers which combine the contents of multiple web feeds for display on a single screen[...]
