E-Mail Alerts at Feedster, RSS Feeds at Yahoo

+ Scott Johnson has let everyone know that Feedster’s E-Mail search alerts are finally working correctly. He even thanks me for the motivation to fix the problem. You’re MORE than welcome Scott and thanks for listening.

+ Earlier this week I mentioned that Yahoo News would soon be adding an XML button on all news search results pages that allows you to add an RSS search results feed to ANY aggregator. As of today, this service is working. Of course, you can also add the feed to your My Yahoo page with just one click. Previously, you had to use the tool on Jeremy Zawdony’s site (it remains available) to create a Yahoo News RSS feeds.

Btw, Speaking of Yahoo and RSS…
Dan Rosenweig, Yahoo’s COO, said yesterday that the company will introduce advertising into RSS feeds. You can learn more about it in the eWeek article: Yahoo Readies Ads for RSS.
