Yahoo! Customized RSS Feeds

Yahoo! now offers customized RSS newsfeeds. This means that you can syndicate any news from Yahoo! automatically without any special coding or complexity. To me, it is really amazing that other news organizations aren’t doing this. If you want a NYTimes feed you still have to use this horrible MoreOver HTML munge and agree to a lengthy Terms of Service promising you won’t mess with the code, and display the Times logo, etc. All because you want to send free traffic to their website.

Yahoo! knows better. Maybe Google will get on the ball on this one before all of blogistan buys into the Yahoo feeds.

Here’s a page describing the service and here’s the related RSS URL Generator
