Google ReaderSurfing the web, you find many interesting websites or blogs which you want to subscribe to. But the never-ending search for the RSS link is a burden we all share. If you are using Google Reader, I may have the perfect solution for you.

Bookmark or favorite the following URL:javascript:var%20b=document.body;var%20GR________bookmarklet_domain='http://www.google.com';if(b&&!document.xmlVersion){void(z=document.createElement('script'));void(z.src='http://www.google.com/reader/ui/subscribe-bookmarklet.js');void(b.appendChild(z));}else{location='http://www.google.com/reader/view/feed/'+encodeURIComponent(location.href)}Using Google Chrome or Firefox, you can drag this link to your bookmarks bar – Subscribe.

Now, you may skip the RSS link seeking and simply click the link you have just bookmarked.

In my browser, Google Chrome, it looks like this:
Subscribe Bookmark

    I actually think it’s an extraordinary way to improve the way people subscribe to RSS. This saves lots of pain in the ass since there are some blogs that do not give the link right on top, so the bookmark thing is found more than useful.

    Thanks for the great tip, Oren!

    I am expecting to see more interesting stuff up here! keep up the good work!
