You like all the posts of this site, you want to follow all the recent posts whenever it will appear on the web. To do that, the simple trick is to find or create an RSS feed for that blog.
For many popular blogs including this, you will the find the option to subscribe the RSS feed at the Home Page or Sidebar of the Blog. But if you don’t find it, then how will you create it?
Here, I am going to describe, how easily you will create RSS an RSS feed for your favorite blog.
What is RSS feed
RSS, which stands for Rich Site Summary, is a commonly used format for publishing a “feed” of content from a website. Blog articles, press releases, updates, or other regularly updated content are all logical candidates for getting an RSS feed. While not as popular as these feeds were a few years ago, there is still value in turning this regularly updated website content into an RSS feed and making it available to your site’s visitors – and since it’s also pretty easy to create and add this feed, there is really no reason not to do so on your website.
You can add an RSS feed to an individual web page or even add it to every page in your website should that be what you decide to do. RSS enabled browsers will then see the link and allow readers to subscribe to your feed automatically. It also makes easier for other websites to link to our content. Because RSS feeds can easily be read by computers, it’s also easy for webmasters to configure their sites so that the latest headlines from another site’s RSS feed are embedded into their own pages, and updated automatically.
Additionally, search engines will see your RSS feed when it’s linked in the HTML of your site. Once you’ve created your RSS feed, you’ll want to link to it so your readers can find it.
What if You Do Not Find the RSS Feed
Most sites are built using a Content Management System, or CMS. Every major CMS offers an RSS feed by default, meaning an RSS exists for each site whether the site’s creators realize that or not. In these cases, Here’s a simple URL hack you can use.

Around 35 percent of sites are built using WordPress, for example. Many others are built on platforms like Google’s Blogger, Yahoo’s Tumblr, or Medium. Here’s how to find RSS feeds for all of those sites.

feeds/posts/defaultto the end of the URL, for example
http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default. Find details here.
- If a blog is hosted on Medium.com, simply insert
/feed/ before the publication’s name in the URL. For example
medium.com/feed/example-site. You can do the same thing for individual author pages, if you want. Find details here.

/rssthe end of the home page’s URL. For example,
