Your Favorite Website Has No RSS Feed? Not a Problem!
This week a came cross an interesting tool called Page2RSS. Basically they will create an RSS feed for static websites, checking it every day for new content, and sending the updates to you whenever they occur.
Not too excited? Well, there are several things you could monitor with this tool. Check out the RSS feed for Google.com for instance, it will show you whenever they have a new message displayed on the homepage, or whenever they have a new logo to celebrate a holiday or event. Pretty cool huh?

Two other sites that do this are Feedity and Dapp. I have used both with varying results depending on the page. You can then take these feeds and use Yahoo pipes to make custom mashups. Off to check out Page2rss.
page2rss is pretty neat. I have been using for a while. I use it to keep myself updated on company homepages.
Oh wow this is cool. I can use it to keep track of corporate web pages. Thanks
THANK YOU! It has been annoying me to no end that Yahoo Sports doesn’t have an RSS feed for news about my players. You just solved my problem!
Thanks for sharing, this is simply great. Never thought there’s such a thing. Now I can brings all my niche sites 1 step closer to web 2.0 .
Once again, thanks.
@Stephan, thanks for sharing those 2 other sites, will check them out.
@John, yeah there is a wide ranges of websites that would be suitable to use with this tool.
@Fern, it is weird that Yahoo! would not support RSS on all its pages eh?
Thank you. This is exactly what I’ve been wanting for a few sites that I have been following for years, where the authors are still hand-coding their sites.
WOW, This is great, Thanks!!!!!!!!!!
I am not against Page2RSS providing feeds where there are none. But Page2RSS makes feeds publicly available to search engines. Isn’t that called scraping? When is scraping not scraping? When it is useful to you?

Thank you so much, Daniel. I found something like this months ago, didn’t bookmark it and thought it was gone forever. I’ll check that out, as well as the others people have mentioned.
Thanks for the recommendation. It’ll definately save me some time in getting updates from websites i visit often. Lately i’ve been seeing the RSS logo but never really gotten to know what was it for. Now i know.
yeah, me too. have seen a lot of the RSS logo. but just don’t know what is it and just never care about it. This article has gave me alot.
Hey this is cool, I am loving it, going to use this for a long time now..
It annoys me when I come across a website I want to “follow” and I can’t find an RSS feed for it! Maybe I use RSS too much, but it really makes tracking site updates easier.
There are other useful tools that can do a similar job. I mentioned them in “Discover the Best RSS Tools and Resources on the Web”.
