Google Shutting Down RSS Reader – Best Reader Alternate


google reader replacementWhen I first heard Google was shutting down their Google RSS Reader on June 1st, I will admin….

I PANICKED!

You see… I have been using Google reader for over a year now.  It has been one of my many “secret” weapons I discuss in my Free 100 Sexy Content Ideas eCourse.

When setup properly (which I go over in the course) can be a goldmine for knowing EXACTLY what is current and what your readers are most interested in.

Simply “check in” on what’s going on without all the fuss of random crap you get from normal search results  and DONT EVEN get me started on Google News!

Well fear not my friend.

The guys over at FEEDLY have got you covered.

Google Reader RSS Alternative

Google announced today that they will be shutting down Google Reader. This is something we have been expecting for some time: We have been working on a project called Normandy which is a feedly clone of the Google Reader API – running on Google App Engine. When Google Reader shuts down, feedly will seamlessly transition to the Normandy back end. So if you are a Google Reader user and using feedly, you are covered: the transition will be seamless.

If you are a Google Reader, give feedly a try before July 1st, and you will be able to migrate seamlesly:

via Transitioning from Google Reader to feedly | Building Feedly.

Yes there are plenty of other Google Reader Replacements you could use like:

    Thank you for this helpful information about Feedly.
    My two cents about Google: I don’t think they were smart in discontinuing their reader. I understand it was not as popular as they’d like, but a better solution would have been to spruce up Google Reader. I will think twice in future if given a choice between a Google product and another. I’m glad to know there are good alternatives.

    Great update and I’m a big fan of Feedly. Didn’t know it would migrate for me. Love the way Feedly looks on all my Smart Devices also. Really sharp and easy to use.
