Syndicate Your Page

Do you have a webpage that you'd like to see provided in RSS, a syndication format used by hundreds of programs and read by thousands of people? Now it can happen. All you have to do is add a simple marker around each item, like this:

<p><span class="rss:item">Here's where the real story is. <a href="">Piggies take over New York.</a> Wow. this is an exciting story. I wish I had one.</span></p>
Note: you can use div instead of span if you need to.

Once you've done that, come back here and enter the address of your page below.
For an example of a generated RSS feed, enter

Sorry, this service is no longer available.

That's it! Now you can use the resulting URL as your very own RSS feed!

Letting People Know

You've got this great RSS feed. Now what?

RSS Version Throw this RSS icon on your site, linking to the URL of your generated feed. The icon shows that you're one of thousands of people who are syndicating your news, and many people immediately recognize them as content for their RSS readers.

Here's the HTML:

<div align="center"><a href="(link-to-the-rss-file)"> <img src="" alt="RSS Version" type="application/xml" longdesc="A yellow rectangle with the letters RSS in red on it." border="0" /></a><br /> <a href="">Powered By Syndicate Your Page</a></div>

Be sure to replace (link-to-the-rss-file) with the URL of your RSS file (it'll be in the address bar of your browser when you enter your website's URL above). It ends up looking like this:

Going Further

Bob Green* has built a page that uses this site and the Wytheville News Service to display his RSS feed as a sidebar on his website. Awesome!


Thanks to Morbus Iff for his help in testing. Thanks to Dan Connolly for the original concept and his HyperRDF and RSS work on which this is based.
