Google News Adds Feeds in More Languages3/01/2006 12:37:00 PM
Until now, Google only supported English RSS feeds for its News site--meaning only Americans, British, Australians, and users in other English-speaking countries had RSS feeds for their editions of Google News. So when a friend asked me to create a Google News Mexico feed in Spanish for Mexican soccer player Borgetti, I had to whip up an email alert that parsed into RSS for his Bloglines account. That was less than optimal and only delivered daily updates, at most.
Now, Google has finally rolled out Google News feeds for the rest of the languages in its News arsenal. Just pick your favorite flavor and add to your newsreader.
To subscribe, go to Google News, select your international edition from the dropdown menu at the top, then find the RSS feed for the page in the left sidebar.
After selecting your edition, you can also enter a search term or click on a news topic, load the results, and select the RSS feed for the search or topic specific page.
Happy international newsing, finally! Thanks Dirson, for spreading the word.
