Leveraging the Power of RSS

Earlier this week Steve Rubel of Micro Persuasion detailed some of his best RSS tips and tricks in a post entitled Ten RSS Hacks. Steve’s post shows that RSS offers much more than simply streamlined reading of blogs and breaking news stories.

Although Steve took some of the better tips, I’ll share three of my own

  1. Track job searches using RSSIndeed, SimplyHired, and craigslist provide RSS feeds for keyword and location searches.

  2. Create a custom Google News page and subscribe to its feed – Go to Google News and create customized sections via keywords (you can also remove standard sections). Subscribe to the feed.

  3. Use Findory to create a personalized RSS feedFindory learns from your reading habits. You can subscribe to a feed that is personalized for you once it learns what you like.
