rss feed url, rss feed buttonIf you are trying to figure out the URL for your blog’s RSS Feed, you’ve come to the right place. I recently tried to figure this out for a Wix blog, googling them to death and found a lot of people screaming about various RSS issues (like how users can’t seem to connect Bloglovin’ to their Wix blog). But you’re not here to hear about my problems. Let’s talk about your problems.

 

What is My RSS Feed URL?

 

If you have your own custom domain (one that you bought so you don’t see the platform in the URL, like blogspot or wordpress or wix…), then your RSS feed URL is either this:

http://yourdomainname.com/feed

or this:

http://yourdomainname.com/feed.xml

For example, if your blog URL is stickyreaders.com, then your RSS feed URL would be:

http://stickyreaders.com/feed

or

http://stickyreaders.com/feed.xml

Sticky Readers is a WordPress blog with a custom domain, so in this blog’s case the RSS Feed URL is the first one: http://stickyreaders.com/feed

What is my RSS Feed URL for a Wix blog?

 

Ask Wix this questions and you will get a robot to tell you how to add an RSS button. But this isn’t what you want to know, is it? You want the URL of the feed itself because other places (like Mailchimp or Amazon author pages) need this URL, and you can’t very well add a Wix RSS button to your Amazon author page – sheesh!

For Premium Wix Accounts With a Custom Domain

If you have an upgraded premium Wix account and a custom domain name, like nannygoatsinpanties.com, then your URL feed would be:

http://nannygoatsinpanties.com/feed.xml

For Free Wix Accounts or Non-Custom Domains

If you have a free Wix Account or a Premium Account without using a custom domain, then the website’s URL has “wix” and your username and your sitename all in there, right?

This is the question I couldn’t find the answer to anywhere on their site and kept getting the RSS-button-obsessed robot. If you have a free Wix account or a premium account without using a custom domain, then the website’s URL has “wix” and your username and your sitename all in there, right? Kinda like this?

http://username.wix.com/sitename

So, your RSS feed URL would be:

http://username.wix.com/sitename/feed.xml

So if your username is “steadyfreddy” and one of your sitenames (you can have more than one site for a single Wix user account), is “myblog”, then your RSS feed URL would be:

http://steadyfreddy.wix.com/myblog/feed.xml

Verify you have the Correct URL before You Submit it Somewhere

 

Do me a big fat favor and verify you have the right URL before you submit it somewhere. To do this, enter the URL in your browser and see what comes up. You should see a blog feed page come up with a summary of your posts like this:
