Creating custom RSS Feeds with Google

Hey everybody!
Today i have a small tip for you:
You sure all know Google Alerts, helping you to stay up to date about certain keywords.
For a long time you could enter your keywords and choose an RSS export for your alerts. But because the Google Reader doesn’t exist anymore, Google doesn’t offer these customized RSS feeds. But with a little trick you can still create and use them.

You just need the following URL:

https://news.google.de/news/feeds?pz=1&cf=all&ned=LANGUAGE&hl=COUNTRY&q=SEARCH_TERM&output=rss

And replace the words LANGUAGE, COUNTRY, and SEARCH_TERM

So if you want a german Feed about “Social Media” it looks like:

https://news.google.de/news/feeds?pz=1&cf=all&ned=de&hl=de&q=Social+Media&output=rss

And that´s it; your customized RSS feed. Just copy this URL and add it to your favorite RSS Reader.
