Feeds are essential part of your blog, if you don’t understand why then you should definitely know one small but essential truth, feeds are what helps spiders and bots to crawl your website and index it. More over it provides the option to feed readers and feed scrapers helping your content to spread everywhere in just a small size.
As Google announced to demise of Google Reader, i need some best feed reader that gives me much option and is as flexible as google reader and so after a long search I found Feedly. So as leaving google reader back and moving forward to use the new feed service provider with Everything New & unfamiliar & then i realised. Adding a new blog to your Feedly account is straightforward. You just click the ‘Add Content’ link and type the name or web address for the feed into the search field which appears.
Except, several of the blogs which I wanted to follow resulted in a “Sorry. No sites found.” error. Since there are millions of blogs even more than minions, you can hardly expect a feed reader to provide you every blogs feed, so i decided to turn myself to a Detective on how I can add the feeds of the blog i want and also add my feed on feedly.
It seems Odd that If you search the feedly you won’t find any place where you can add the feed URL. Still confused and seeing no obvious way of adding these “not found” blogs to Feedly, I attempted to follow my own blog. Here’s a Button, to follow my blog feed directly without searching anything.
Frustrated and Angry that even finding the feed reader that i want I’m unable to add my feeds and the blogs feeds i follow. I tried to find the Feedly FAQ or help page and it’s weird that they didn’t include a help page link on the user dashboard. But, theres always the Google baba, I a quick tip from our baba I was able to found the Customer Feedback & Knowledge Base for Feedly.
On reading the entire document, It turns out, there is a simple but manual way to add a blog RSS to your Feedly account, if it doesn’t show up in their blog search. I hope that Feedly would provide links to the instructions beneath the “Sorry. No sites found.” error to help users. Until then, here’s the Complete tutorial with Video on Smart Active Blogger.
