How can I get my RSS feed URL?

There are three different ways to get an RSS feed URL:

Method No. 1

  1. Use the URL address for the website to get the RSS feed URL.
  2. Add “?feed=rss” after the forward slash ( / ) at the end of the URL.

For example, the website todayslifestyle.com becomes todayslifestyle.com/?feed=rss

Method No. 2

One of the most common ways of finding the RSS feed for a WordPress site is by adding “feed” to the end of the URL.
