RSS on beyondbrics

If you don’t know what RSS is, skip down the page to the guide below.

Beyondbrics has an RSS feed of our posts: http://blogs.ft.com/beyond-brics/feed/, and of emerging markets news stories from the FT: http://www.ft.com/rss/markets/emerging.

We also have RSS feeds for every tag, category (usually a country) and author. We won’t list them all here, as they are a constantly evolving list – you can work them out by simply adding /feed to the end of the url.

Tag (topics):
An example of a currencies feed would be:
http://blogs.ft.com/beyond-brics/tag/currencies/feed/
Some other tag feeds: monetary policy, economic growth, inflation

Category (countries):
One example of a country feed is China:

Some other country feeds: Brazil, India, Indonesia, Russia, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey

Author:
An example of a the Author feed would be:
http://blogs.ft.com/beyond-brics/author/james-kynge/feed/

Search:
You can even create your own feed from search terms – for example, to get a feed of everything to do with Microsoft, you can use:
http://blogs.ft.com/beyond-brics/feed/?s=microsoft

Just replace the key words in the examples above with what you are interested in, and the RSS feed will work.


Introduction to RSS:

This is from the FT’s guide to RSS

RSS feeds are a quick and easy way to get the news that matters most to you as soon as it is published. These feeds contain headlines, links and descriptions and are updated as the website is updated with new stories. Follow these simple steps to get started with RSS.

Step one
Download or sign-up to a news reader service where you can access all your feeds in one place. You can use popular feed readers such as Google Reader, Newsgator, NetNewsWire or Bloglines, which are free and simple to use. In a similar way you can set up a personal page such as MyYahoo!, iGoogle or MyAOL and follow their instructions to add content.

An alternative is to access feeds though your web browser. If you use a browser such as Firefox, Safari, Opera or a recent version of Internet Explorer, just click on the RSS button and choose where you want to display your feeds.

Step two
To add a feed to your reader, create the feed you want (or click on one of the examples above). You can then either copy and paste the feed url into your reader or add the feed to your reader using the one click subscription option.

Step three
Repeat the process until you have all the feeds you need.

Your feed reader should now update with headlines from your chosen feeds as they are published.
