What's an aggregator?
Last updated by Anon on Tuesday, 08/07/2001 - 19:15

An aggregator is a web site or system that collects RSS feeds from multiple sources and then does something with them. Usually this will involve collating and displaying the contents of each feed and perhaps creating new composite feeds from them.

Many of the aggregators are also major sources of feeds which they create by scraping the html from sites that don't produce their own.

The most well known aggregators can be found in "How do I find RSS Feeds?"
