How to Find a Website’s RSS Feed’s URL

Having access to the RSS feed of a website gives you the opportunity to stay up-to-date on everything that website publishes. Whether that’s a section of a news website, a favorite blog, or something else, you can make sure you don’t miss out on fresh and new content that will interest you.

There are a several ways to search for and find an RSS Feed URL, but in this post, i will showing you three simple methods which cost nothing and you do not need to download or install any third party extension or software. If you are looking for your website’s RSS feed, you can also go through any of the methods below;

Finding RSS Feed’s URL of a WordPress Site

WordPress which is one of the most popular CMS, powers about 35% of the entire internet. If you’re trying to find the RSS feed of any WordPress powered website, all you need to do is add /feed/ to the end of the website’s URL.

For example, the RSS feed’s URL for Educative Helper which has URL https://educativehelper.com  is  https://educativehelper.com/feed/

It will take you to the RSS feed, as long as the website is powered by WordPress. In most cases, you will get a downloadable feed just like for Educative Helper.

If you tried the above and it doesn’t work, then it means that the website isn’t powered by WordPress?

Finding RSS Feed’s URL by Locating and Clicking on the RSS Logo

The standard orange RSS logo pictured below is a dead giveaway. If you see it appearing on the website, just click on it. Clicking on it will take you to the website’s RSS feed. From there, you can get the URL for feed source settings.

Find the RSS Feed’s URL Through the Page Source

If any of the above methods doesn’t work, you can take a look at the HTML source of the website’s page. Once on the page you can search for and locate the website’s RSS feed’s URL. This can be a bit confusing if you are not tech savvy, but below is a simple guide for you;
