How To Find the RSS Feed for Your Blogger Blog

I’ve been asked how to find the RSS feed for Blogger a few times now. It’s a handy thing to know because with the RSS feed address, you can link Facebook notes and Blogger content which allows you to connect your content to a larger audience. Finding the RSS feed address in Blogger is a little frustrating. I clicked around settings for a while to find it myself. It’s not exactly something that everyone needs or wants to know, but when you do it would be really nice if it was obvious and immediately available. The ATOM URL used to be listed there. Finally I poked around in the help files and discovered how to construct the URL in Blogger to get the RSS feed for my blog.

To find out how to get the RSS code for Blogger yourself, just watch the video below and you’ll see how to do it for your own blog.

According to Google / Blogger, here are the special addresses they’ve provided for blog users.

Full site feed:

  • Atom 1.0: http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default
  • RSS 2.0: http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss

Comments-only feed:

  • Atom 1.0: http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/comments/default
  • RSS 2.0: http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/comments/default?alt=rss

Label-specific site feed:

  • Atom 1.0: http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/comments/default/-/labelname
  • RSS 2.0: http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/comments/default?alt=rss/-/labelname

Individual post comment feed:

  • Atom 1.0: http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/postId/comments/default
  • RSS 2.0: http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/postId/comments/default?alt=rss

RSS feeds from Blogger seem to provide clean code. This is a good thing too because I don’t know of any clean RSS widget for Blogger.

    I’ve also found the Rss feed difficult to find so your post has been most helpful. I will direct my members your way as they ask me all the time.
    Cheers

    your post helped me get the html code, but then my yolasite wouldn't accept it for some reason. but thank you anyways… it's been a pain trying to get a Rss feed for blogger, and apparently will continue to be for a slight time still.

  12. facebooksex on May 19, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    Now blogspot provides an Atom feed. Append /atom.xml to the end of your Blogspot URL to get your Atom feed. For example my blog – http://alanwattsbooks.blogspot.com/ has an Atom feed at http://alanwattsbooks.blogspot.com/atom.xml

    And I KNOW i now have the right USS feed adress! (Thanks to you) Can you please tell me what’s wrong? Do you know what is wrong?

      That’s awesome. Thanks for the update.

  22. BlackwaterBirder on March 14, 2011 at 12:52 am

    Alternate method –

    Go to blog – right click – choose view page source – CTRL-F – search for “RSS” – this will find the link that you can right click to copy and the paste in browser.

    Thaks for the info – it helped me confirm that the above method did produce the right address.

  23. Fabulositynouveau on March 14, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    Ok. It’s 3:30 and I’m cranky. I’ve tried everything and nothing seems to work. When I add /feeds/posts/default?alt=rss to my blogspot all I get is pages of symbols and letters. I’m trying to bring my blogspot into my new website. What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks

    • Ghotter on October 14, 2011 at 8:18 pm

      did you get an answer as I get the same thing

      • lari18br.ca on October 29, 2011 at 10:08 pm

        Hey guys, so if you haven’t gotten an answer yet, or haven’t found it, I
        asked around and apparently the reason I was getting all these codes
        was because I was using google chrome, try using firefox or internet
        explorer, if you were using chrome. I tried and am now using firefox and
        the feed page appears just fine. Good luck!

    Google is such a great company for many things, but then sometimes they can’t do a simple thing such as provide links to RSS feeds…

    Thank you so much, keep up the good work : )

    Thank you so much.  Your instructions are clear and easy to follow. I am quite new to blogging and if I ever try and find anything on blogger help – I think I’ve got a learning problem or something.  Are there any human beings with any common sense in Google? That can just explain something so that normal people can understand?

    Keep the good work up!

    When I put in feeds/posts/default?alt=rss to find my RSS feed, it comes up as a lot of script and no images. I selected short in Allow Blog Feed and got script but this time at least it was intelligible, but still no no images.

    • Dave Saunders on January 23, 2013 at 8:27 pm

      If you’re testing the URL with your browser, you’re likely seeing raw RSS code. I think Chrome is one of the browsers that doesn’t do anything special with RSS. Firefox might display it differently. That you’re getting “code” is a good sign though because it means the URL is working! If it didn’t, you’d likely get a 404 Page Not Found Error.

      • Claudia on August 28, 2013 at 7:44 pm

        Thanks for explaining. This doesn’t work in chrome. Now, i’m not even receiving code (at first I did).

  99. A Critelli on June 2, 2013 at 11:11 am

    I’ve noticed that my feeds aren’t being pulled and updated. It only pulls the posts from months and months ago when I type the feeds/posts/default?alt=rss at the end of my blog. There is a problem within the html code somewhere. I am pretty sure that when I added some code a while back, that was when the feeds stopped updating. Any idea where in the “edit html” section can I find the RSS feed code and how it should read? It needs to be fixed.. Any help is greatly appreciated… thank you
