fun with feeds

by

An earlier post mentioned using a news feed or aggregator to subscribe to our blog. Another neat thing you can do with feeds is to perform a search and then add this search to your aggregator!

FindArticles, an article search engine, offers this capability. Here’s what to do:
1. head on over to the findarticles.com search engine.
2. type in your search. Try to be as specific as possible as findarticles.com contains loads of articles!
3. Note that you can limit your search to only the free articles or to specific subject categories.
4. Click Search.
5. At the top of your search results, you’ll see an orange RSS button. Click the button to get the URL that you can add to your aggregator!

Now you don’t need to come back to findarticles.com again and again to see what has been newly published in your area. Yahoo news offers a similar feature…simply enter your search and grab the feed to plug into your aggregator!
