Google Reader now tracks RSS-free websites


I love RSS, and the other news feeders, it makes keeping track of websites super easy, but what do you do if the site doesn’t offer a feed? Until recently I was using Change Detection dot com which you can configure to send you an email if there’s a change to any URL but it’s kinda clunky.


Well now Google Reader have announced that it can follow changes to any website, allowing you to generate news feeds from sites that don’t have them.

Feeds make it easy to follow updates to all kinds of webpages, from blogs to news sites to Craigslist queries, but unfortunately not all pages on the web have feeds. Today we’re rolling out a change in Google Reader that lets you create a custom feed to track changes on pages that don’t have their own feed.
