Content Discovery: RSS and the Power of Dynamic OPML Subscriptions

June 12, 2014 Robin Good


Robin Good's insight:



If you need to monitor and track content updates from many different web sources, while being able to manage and easily update such sets of content sources, you may want to look into dynamic OPML reading lists.


In this in-depth article, Marjolein Hoekstra explores, reports and illustrates the power of OPML files and their abilities when paired with specific tools. 


Specifically (though not in this same exact order):


  • What are OPML reading lists
  • OPML examples on the web
  • OPML history and Dave Winer
  • FeedShare OPML exchange site
  • Limitations of OPML reading lists
  • InoReader and dynamic OPML reading lists
  • How to create RSS feeds from your own reading lists
  • How to generate OPML reading lists from your RSS reader
  • OPML tools and resources
  • Create a Google custom search engine with an OPML file



The article is a treasure trove of useful information especially for any journalist or researcher in need to continuously and update its news discovery and monitoring abilities. 


N.B.: Organization of the content sections in this article is a bit rough, but if you are not in a rush and dig through it, you can easily make sense of it all-


Informative. Insightful. 8/10
