There are many reasons for why you might like to create a search feed for your network.  For example, inside groups you have a RSS module which you might like to keep updated on a particular topic.  I've been doing this for years using the RSS feed that Google generates at the bottom of a search results page.  I just run a search, copy the feed URL and plug it into the RSS of a group on a particular topic.  BOOM  a constantly updated group on autopilot.  Now you can do this with a Bing search with this quick little hack:

 

Say you want to run a search for "Land Surveyors Support" (look whos number 1)

You get a URL like this:

http://www.bing.com/search?q=Land+Surveyors+Support&pc=Z008&form=ZGAFDF

 

How to Get RSS Feed from Bing Search

To create an RSS feed in Bing, conduct a search, and at the end of the URL from the search results screen add the following text: &format=rss

 

NOTE:  for the example below, i used RSS2GIF to demonstrate the feed capabilities

Our Result:

If you like this tip, please do ME a favor...  Like my network's page on Facebook...i accidentally deleted my page a few weeks back and trying to get my likes back up.  I appreciate it.

  • dude you always have super cool tips and ideas, who woulda thought to use a google search rss to keep a group constantly rolling with content? my mind just went kaboom with ideas! 

     

     I liked your page, and it wasn't til then I realized you are in Charleston, SC.....I was born there, Roper Hospital I think it was. We moved when I was a little baby, never been back but want to. I always thought you were in Louisiana, I guess because of the LSU logo, lol. Very nice tips, thanks for sharing!

     

    EDIT: I feel very dumb asking this, but I do not see an rss button at the bottom of searches I am doing on Google. Is it hidden in one of the "About Google" or other Google hyperlinks?

      the way to get RSS from google is not to use the web search, but to perform a search, then switch to News or Blogs and each one of those has an RSS link at bottom of page....hope this helps...thanks for the remarks....been doing the Google thing for a while..!
