In a previous article, we discussed about what an RSS feed and how you can use it. As promised, in this one I will show you how to create an RSS feed for each category in your WordPress blog.
Why is an RSS feed for each category useful
It might happen that on your website are debated more than one subjects. For a better segregation, you split them into categories. If this is the case then you must consider that not all of your visitors are interested in all categories. Some might want to follow the Hi-Tech materials, others Business or Financial Education. To avoid losing them as visitors by overflowing them with information they don’t want, you can offer them a separate RSS feed for each category.
What you need to do to get an RSS feed for each category
From a technical point of view, everything is handled by WordPress. As is the case for the general RSS feed, WordPress automatically generates a feed for each category. Let’s say you have the following category:
To get the feed for this category all you need to do is to add the word feed at the end of the URL address, like this:
In the end, the procedure is similar to the one for the general RSS feed, the only difference is that you insert in the URL the category name.
Once you did all of the above you can create buttons for each category. Display them where you want for the visitors to see and subscribe using them.
This is all you need to do to have a different RSS feed for each category. Rather than spamming you visitors, better offer them what they are there for.
