RSS Feed Autodiscovery Tags

rss01

Yesterday when I was working with BlogCatalog, I discovered that my RSS feeds weren’t being autodiscovered.  After doing a little digging, I realized that I was missing a very simple HTML tag.  It’s an easy and common oversight for people running blogs on their own servers, or using their own code.

Just add the following tag to your pages inside the <HEAD> tag, preferably on your master page or template, and you should be golden.

rss01-autodisco-tag


See image above for what I used in my tag.  If you’re running an atom feed, replace rss+xml with rss+atom.

Voila… c’est fini.
