Keyword RSS thingy

  • # October 26, 2009 at 3:06 am

    So, once again I find it necessary to excuse myself from the shadows of noobery. (noobhood?)

    Here’s what I’m wanting to do: I want to create an RSS feed based on a keyword. So let’s say that we’re using something like Google Reader…. I want to type into a field say: "blackberry OS" and forever be fed juicy bits of the internet simply based on that search query. (pretty much a constant feed from google news, yahoo news… the entirety of the interwebs) I know you can syndicate a search from google news specifically (and I would presume the same goes for yahoo news). But would global search syndication (whoa.. GSS… I called it! its mine!) be possible through your favorite feeder?

    Twitter does a decent job at this with the hash-tags, but cross referencing can get cumbersome.

    Alright, well, I’m sure someone is about to tell me how silly I am! Thanks!

    I think that’s kind of the idea behind Google Alerts:

    Faster than the average curator.

    Ahhh see? I knew you guys would make me look stupid. Pretty darn excellent blogging tool. I’m still sticking with the term GSS.. cause it’s awesome ;)
