Microsoft RSS feeds directory

Microsoft has introduced the Microsoft Feeds Directory, a central location where you can find and subscribe to every RSS feed offered by the company across its multiple websites and blogs.

You can search feeds by keywords and phrases, and in languages other than English. Feeds are also categorized to make it easier to find specific feeds by topic and business area.

What would make this even more useful would be if there were a way to subscribe to a complete category or a search result. Perhaps an OPML download of all feeds in a given category or search result.

Still, it’s a very useful resource if you want to find Microsoft feeds to add to your RSS reader.

One other useful feature of the Microsoft RSS directory is an introductory guide to help you understand what RSS is and get started using feeds. While it’s a little tech focused – which will be no problem for the geek who hasn’t yet figured out RSS – it is a good start if you want to understand how RSS is such a useful tool.


Phil Gomes at Edelman has just written a primer for iMedia Connection on how to use RSS as a marketing tool which includes a concise description of what RSS is.
