What is ROR?

Resources of a Resource (ROR) is a rapidly growing independent Extensible Markup Language (XML) format for describing the content, objects and structure of a web site in a generic fashion. All objects are represented by a tag and can have a property to determine their type (or class). It allows us to describe how the information is organised and provides terms for documenting objects.

Information is typically stored in a ROR feed file located in a web site's main directory which can be easily accessed and understood by all search engines. We use a ROR feed located on our Site map to supply information to search engines.
