How To Find an RSS Feed URL on Any Website

You have a favorite blog that you would like to add to your RSS (Rich Site Summary or as some call it Really Simple Syndication) feeder. The only problem is that the site doesn't have that handy little orange and white RSS button.  No problem, here I will show you how super simple it is to grab the RSS URL from any website.  Each step is accompanied by an image, feel free to click on the image(s) to enlarge.


Let's Begin!



Step One


  • Go To the Website of Your Choice

Go To Your Chosen Website


Step Two


  • Right Click on any open space on the webpage
  • From the small pop-up window, select "View Page Source"


  • Right Click on any open space on the webpage

 Step Three


  • When you click "View Page Source", a new window or tab will open up.  This page will display all of the source code for the website and should look similar to this image below


When you click "View Page Source", a new window or tab will open up



Step Four


  • Now, press CTRL and F at the same time—this will execute the "Find" function (allowing you to search a page for a specific item).  When you press those two keys at the same time, a small search field will appear; either in the top right hand area of the page or the bottom left hand area of the page

Now, press CTRL and F at the same time—this will execute the "Find" function


Step Five


  •  In the search field, type RSS
  • As soon as you type RSS, you will notice RSS will be highlighted in the code
  •  Looking at the same line of code from where the RSS is highlighted, you will see a URL (in this case the URL is: 
    http://www.thehowtoblog.org/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss 
    Notice how the URL ends with the text "alt=rss"—this is what your RSS URL should end with as well.
  • Now, just copy the URL address and paste it into your RSS feed reader


 BOOM!  You now know how to successfully grab the RSS URL from any site out there!
