How to get the most from Google News feeds

Straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak, the Google News team’s blog have posted some useful tips on how to get the most from your Google news feeds.

Worthy of note are hints on how to get news on feeds from their 41 editions round the globe:

“For instance, let’s say that you only care about articles on “Google” coming from the Italian edition, but don’t want to create a dedicated section on your Google News homepage for this topic. Here’s what you can do:

– go to the Italian edition of Google News using the link available at the bottom of our homepage
– perform a search for “Google”
– click on the RSS or Atom feed links in the results page (placed in the same location for all our editions)
– subscribe to the feed.

There’s also a reminder of how to turn your Google searches of your favourite news sources into a feed:

  1. Type the operator ‘site:’ followed by the source you want to get your news from into a Google News search [e.g.].
  2. In the results page click on the RSS link or Atom icon on the lefthand side of your screen.
  3. A new page will appear, allowing you to choose where you want to receive the feed.
