Get A (Public) RSS Feed
For Any Google+ Profile
Yesterday, I went on a wild goose hunt for a RSS output from my profile!
I won, but it was a much longer hunt than anticipated!
I spent the majority of the last 2 days setting up a so-far fantastic plugin called RSS Link Bomber on my blog (handles RSS directory feed submissions) and I needed the RSS feeds of my major social sites.
Facebook Page , easy! YouTube, Easy! Twitter, Easy! Google Plus…. ummm… well… (easy once you know what to do!)
It turns out that not only has Google NOT provided a RSS output but that they’ve financially punished every developer that has tried to set one up for us!
For now, the best working solution is the recently updated version 2 of PlusFeed which is super simple to use!
Once there, take the URL and put your Google+ Profile ID number at the end of the URL, like this:
(That’s the feed for the public shares from my profile)
If you don’t know how to find your Google+ ID number, click here.
For some reason the URL was a bit fiddly in my copy-paste but playing with it got it going.
This does NOT currently work for the new Google+ Business Pages but DOES create a feed for any profile you want to follow with no permission setup required.
Hope you enjoyed this tip!
