The image below highlights the steps for adding a blog to Feedspot through the platform’s dashboard.
The steps above also work for adding individual blog categories to Feedspot. Instead of entering the main RSS feed URL, you can add the feed for the specific category page.
Following that process will force Feedspot to fetch the blog posts for that category rather than the main blog’s feed. This method can be useful if you want to add and follow each blog category separately.
If you want to follow your blog on Feedspot, then click the “Follow” button next to the feed. The feed will then be displayed in the left sidebar under the Following section of the dashboard.
Finding Your Blog’s RSS Feed for Feedspot
If you don’t know what your blog’s RSS feed is, there are three ways to find it to add to Feedspot:
- If it’s a WordPress blog, you can just add /feed/ to the end of the URL to get the feed. This tip also works for any blog category’s URL.
- If the blog has an RSS icon on the site, then click on it and copy the URL to use in Feedspot.
- For all other types of blogs, right-click on a blog post and choose “View Page Source”. Then use the find feature using the keyboard command Ctrl + F on a PC or Command + F on a Mac and search for “feed”, “rss”, or “.xml”. You’ll find the blog’s feed URL between the quotes after href=.
