I am not sure how many of you actually use digg, but if you do here is something to Make Use Of. Here, I would to show you how to ensure that your Digg feed brings you only the stories you want and leave out everything else.
I like getting top stories on my feedreader. The problem lies with currently offered feeds, they are not diverse enough and in some cases are too broad. As a result, subscriber ends up with bunch of news which maybe interesting but something s/he has neither intention nor time to read. Today I discovered that using Digg’s search feature you can actually create your own feed and only get stories matching your specified criteria.
1. Say I want to stay tuned on all Front page promoted stories about Firefox
2. For that I simply need to go to search page and specify search criteria in the format as shown in the image below.
3. Once you press search, locate tiny RSS icon in the top right corner of results column.
4. Press on it and copy the address of the feed page into your feedreader. Afterwards, as soon as there is a new promoted story regarding firefox you’ll see it
I chose to monitor term ‘Firefox’, but you can use whatever you like (iPod, Myspace, Youtube, Microsoft etc.). I also selected feed to show promoted stories not older then 30 days but if you want can reduce it to 7 days or even make it daily. That’s about it. Enjoy!
