Digg search now with RSS

When most people think of RSS they think of a simple way to subscribe to their favorite news/blog feeds and display it however they want – most RSS junkies use web or standalone aggregators – while others, such as myself, prefer basic live bookmarks. While RSS can be as basic as subscribing to a friend’s blog, it can also be used as a powerful data mining tool.

RSS Search: This is a brand new feature for digg (Owen just turned it live this last Saturday) which allows you to create custom live feeds based on your search criteria. A couple examples: I enjoy pictures from space, especially the nice high rez ones NASA releases from time to time. So, I visit the search page, type in the keywords, “NASA picture,” then choose the drop down, “search promoted.” This instructs digg to give me all stories containing the words “nasa picture” that have, at one point, been promoted to the homepage (insuring the best results). From here I’m presented with the results, but also with a small RSS button in the upper right. That RSS button links to the feed for this search allowing you to subscribe and retrieve the latest promoted NASA picture stories as they become available. These feeds can also be used to assist you in your digging efforts. I choose the drop down “digg areas” then live bookmark several of my favorite keywords such as "ubuntu" and "AMD." This way, I can keep tabs on any newly submitted stories under the keywords I enjoy.

Friends Aggregator: Another feature to check out is the digg 'friends' aggregator. If you have several friends using digg (or other digg members who’s content you enjoy) simply add them as friends in your profile. As your friends digg, submit, or comment on stories, feeds are created to track their activity. Example: I have around 10 or so digg members I track – but digg creates a nice single unified feed containing all their daily digg history (beats looking at 10 or so different feeds).

Enjoy the new search!
