Custom RSS Creation

  1. 0
    BenjaminBposted 6 years ago

    What's the easiest free tool to use to create a custom RSS feed?

    Also I don't understand when you create a custom RSS feed it requires on all of the free services I've seen to input a URL for the feed. When I try to create a custom feed of just a certain niche of my hubs what am I supposed to use for this URL.

    I tried using the same URL as my latest Hubs feed but all that did was make the address to the feed the same and keep all my other hubs mixed in. So I'm lost here and can't find any in detail explanation.

    Do I need to create a sub domain or website for a custom feed address?

    From your post it just sounds like a matter of making a custom tag for the articles you want to be in the rss, the hub by Edweirdo explains this pretty well remember it takes a couple hours to update a new tag rss.

    Or are you trying to do some other kind of custom rss ?

    HubPages default RSS feeds is based on your profile.

    It is labeled in three categories- best/hot/latest

    If you want to create a "custom" feed, then it must happen via a "keyword" or "tag". Something that related to the hub.

    The "keyword"/"tag" helps find your hub.

    The command- hxxp://hubpages.com/tag/(insert tag/keyword here)/

    The ending can be- best?rss or hot?rss or latest?rss. It will be specific to the "tag" or "keyword" used in the command.

    If you are using multiple "tags" then add a "+" between the words.

    Example: hxxp://hubpages.com/tag/women+celebs/latest?rss

    I hope that helps.
