    I like using search engines to hunt for blog feeds. I put in one or two main keywords in the search, along with RSS so I will only get blogs that have RSS feeds available. How do you find good blog feeds?

    That's a great question Elleth, I'm moving this thread to the Blog/RSS forum though.

    Sometimes I use Technorati or Yahoo RSS, but most of the best feeds I have found were in links or blog rolls of leading Blogs I was already interested in.

    DayPop.com

    I like to check out DayPop - http://www.daypop.com/blogrank/

    The link above will show you their top ranked blogs but you can easily search for relevant blogs by going to their root URL http://www.daypop.com/ and adjusting the search parameter on the right.

    Others to search are:

    http://www.blogwise.com/
    http://www.blogarama.com/
    http://www.blogstreet.com/
    http://www.blogsearchengine.com/
    http://www.blogdigger.com/
    http://www.bloggernity.com/
    http://www.blogcatalog.com/

    I search bloglines for feeds. When I find something I like I look at who is subscribed and check out their subscriptions.

    I typically find blog feeds all over the place, especially reading my favorite blogs, and half the time I'm not even actively looking. LOL

    Some of the ways I find feeds include checking my backlinks, scouring Technorati and other blog directories, DMOZ and Yahoo! Directory both have an entire section dedicated to blogs.

    If I'm looking for information on a specific topic, then I'm more likely to use a blog search engine.

    Hi Lovely,
    Feeds themselves aren't a way to link back to popular sites. The links happen within the content of a blog entry. Feeds are a way for visitors to read the content without needing to visit the website. Mainly this is done with a feed reader (examples: Sage for Firefox, Bloglines online, or Feed Reader). These feed readers allow the users to monitor as many feeds as they want from a central location. In essence, feeds are convenient for your readers.

    Feeds can help your blog become popular because it makes it easier for more people to stay up to date with your content. As you produce something noteworthy, people may end up blogging about it with a link back to your blog.

    Other ways that feeds can be used is for site aggregation at hub sites, like Linda's Affiliate Buzz. Using a feed script, a webmaster can pull content from various feeds and publish it on her site with a link back to the original source. But, be warned, this can also be used for evil (i.e. scrapers and content stealing).

    Hope that gives you some ideas.

    ~ Teli
