How To find RSS Feed URL For Any Website

RSS is arguably the best way to keep up to date with fresh content from your favourite sites. Most websites, podcasts, blogs and publishing platforms have RSS feeds. For example, TechCrunch, AfroTech and The New York Times all have feeds you can subscribe to. We’ve outlined below the easiest ways to find feeds from your favourite publications.

Look for the RSS icon

RSS Icon

If you see the RSS icon on a webpage, this is an indication the website has a feed you can subscribe to. Clicking on it will direct you to the URL of the feed.

Look for RSS or Atom buttons and labels

Sometimes instead of using the RSS icon above, a site will have a button or a label called ‘RSS’ or ‘Feed’ – this will be a link to their feed.

Publishing platforms

Most publishing platforms have RSS feeds built in.

For example:

WordPress sites: www.yourwordpresswebsite.com/feed

Medium users: www.medium.com/feed/@yourusername

Medium publications: www.medium.com/feed/yourpublicationname

Substack: www.yoursubstackpublication.com/feed

Tumblr: www.yourtumblrsite.com/rss

Blogger: www.yourbloggersite.com/posts/default

Dev.to: www.dev.to/feed/username
