How To Add RSS Autodiscovery To Your Blogger/BlogSpot Blog

Blogs with older blogger templates that have RSS feeds do not get there feeds auto discovered, by including one line of HTML to enable RSS auto discovery.

Adding that one line of code to your template will make it easier for people to subscribe to your RSS feed. Here's how:

 rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" 
  title="RSS Feed for" 
  href="/rss/" />

The above link tag should be added inside the head tag of your HTML document.

You will of course need to change the value of the title and href attributes to fit your needs.

If your feed is an ATOM feed you will want to change the type to application/atom+xml.

If you have multiple feeds for the url you can just specify multiple link tags.

When you enable auto discovery for your rss feed it allows browsers and aggregators to automatically detect the RSS feed when your browsing, and it makes it easy for the user to subscribe to it.
