Finding the right RSS feeds for your reader can be a bit of a challenge just because of the sheer number of feeds that exist. But that’s where RSS directly lists figure in. There are a number of online networks and search engines featuring RSS directories by topic, by popularity, by newness and so on.
There’s a U.S. government RSS feed directory that hosts categories like feeds about employment and education, about consumer alerts and product recalls, health topics, defense and international relations, home and family topics, and more. All of the feeds in this RSS directly list are managed and produced by the U.S. government. There are also Yahoo directory feeds, basically a categorized directory covering all the content that’s hosted on Yahoo. Categories are broad and include topics like entertainment (with music, movies and TV), sports news, recreation, and and regional categories.
However, an RSS directly list doesn’t necessarily refer to a list of feeds, but often to a master list of different directories, each of which in turn is a list of individual feeds. The Open Directory Project, for instance, is a fairly extensive list of RSS directories. It links to directories including the New York Times directory list, the USA Today list, the CNET network, the National Public Radio directory and the National Weather Service.
And the Open Directory Project is just one instance what an RSS directly list can be like. You’ll find that every RSS directly list features different sorts of content, and will vary a good bit in length. To find just the right sort of RSS feeds for you, you’ll want to find an RSS directory list that you find easy to navigate, and that can act as a gateway to dozens, or scores of RSS feeds that you’ll find captivating or informative.
