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.

    Oh so helpful…thank you! You just saved me hours of research.

  2. Thanks, that saved me a bunch of reading through the help section!

    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.

  4. 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.

    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
