How to Add a Website or Blog Feed to iGoogle for Online Marketing

By John Arnold, Michael Becker, Marty Dickinson, Ian Lurie, Elizabeth Marsten

iGoogle is a very user-friendly social media desktop tool and allows you to add other services, such as a website or blog feed for your online marketing needs. You can also add this to any previous Google accounts you may have already set up.

After you create your iGoogle homepage, you can start tracking news feeds and getting up-to-date information. You might already have a few blogs or websites that you read regularly. If you do, you can watch their updates on your iGoogle homepage. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the website or blog.

  2. Click the RSS subscription button or link.


    The Add to Google page appears. If your web browser is set up to add RSS feeds to a different program, the Google page may not appear — your browser will open a different web page instead. If that happens, skip to the later section “Adding feeds to iGoogle manually” to work around this issue.

  3. Click the Add to Google Homepage button.

    You see the latest headlines from that website or blog.


From now on, when the website to which you just subscribed updates, the widget on your iGoogle homepage will immediately update.
