RSS and Atom Feed Support

RSS and Atom are standards for content syndication.

The Site Search Crawler support RSS and Atom feeds.

RSS/Atom feeds give good hints about where to find the most recently updated pages.

If your website provides an RSS or Atom feed, our crawler will download it to find new links on your site to index first.

This is particularly useful when Site Search is doing an incremental update of your website.

To tell the Site Search Crawler about your RSS or Atom feed, use autodiscovery in the <head> section of your template.

For example, your website has an RSS feed at

The auto-discovery code would look like this:

Example - RSS auto-discovery
    <title>Your Site Title</title>
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS feed" href="">

If your website has an Atom feed, you would use the application/atom+xml type for the link tag:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Atom feed" href="">

Subscribing to your site in a feed reader like NetNewsWire, FeedDemon, or Feedly to verify that your RSS or Atom autodiscovery is configured.
