Producing A Combined Rss News Feed
Posted 01 May 2008 - 01:26 PM
I have four online properties (3 blogs and a website article collection), each of which has its own RSS news feed. I wish to create automatically a combined RSS news feed so that anyone can check on whatever I may have written recently. This would in a sense aggregate the four individual news feeds into one single news feed. I've searched a little around FeedBurner but cannot see any tool there for this.
Can anyone think of an easy way of doing this?

1. Use Yahoo! Pipes to merge all the feeds into one.
2. DIY using SimplePIE which has - shockingly! - a merge feeds function built in.
As a firm believer of controlling as much as you can of your own properties, I favor the latter. Regardless, two tutorials to get you going:

I know you'll be disappointed, Pierre. I then went to Yahoo! Pipes, which worked like a charm. One of the best applications I've seen. I can recommend it to anyone. If you want to create a combined feed of any news feeds at all, then this is certainly a good way to go.

Actually... But let's not get off topic
Well I guess Yahoo! isn't as big (or as evil?) as Google.

I now have a Yahoo! Pipe, which consists of 4 Feedburner news feeds for 4 blogs. If someone 'subscribes' to the Yahoo! Pipe in say Google Reader, does this translate into subscriptions to the individual Feedburner news feeds? I'm hoping it will work like this, but I'm not sure. What do others think?

You may need to create a new Feedburner channel for the Piped feeds, and just plan on tracking it separately.
