How to Subscribe RSS Feed?

Some of you may already know what is RSS feed and know how to subscribe them. But I’m sure some of you don’t know what exactly RSS feed and how you can use them as a loyal reader or visitor. But I will not discuss what is RSS here because you can learn it by asking Mr Google or you can read directly from here.

So, in this post I will teach you or I will guide you on how to subscribe RSS feed. But first, you need to get a RSS link and a feed aggregator or some peoples call them as a feed reader.

To get RSS link, usually it marks with these images or just a text like this.

Just copy the URL and paste it in your feed reader. In this how-to, I will use two softwares as for the example. FeedReader (freeware) and FeedDemon (shareware). So, we will have two sections here.

  1. Bro, great tutorial here. RSS always keep us updated with our favourite bookmarks. By the way, i prefer using online RSS feeder. I can read RSS everywhere i want.

    Previously i subscribed RSS feed using newsgator but now I’m using Google Reader. Simple. Yeah, it still depends on us which to use. But if it is just for the sake of reading our favourites, the simpler.. the better.

    Peace. :)>-

  2. thank you. i will add another tutorial about google reader later. 🙂

  3. Bought Feed Demon for around RM 120.I find it very handy and it even syncronizes your feed with newsgator(you must have an account) ..so you can actually read your feeds anywhere, plus the hassle free solution of a desktop reader.There’s also another free desktop reader called YeahReader http://www.yeahreader.com .

  4. i also use feeddemon as my primary aggregator. but at office i use google reader. :d
