Why No RSS for News?

December 19th, 2013

Why is it that so few companies provide us with RSS feeds of their news?

I know RSS has been around for a long time (in web terms) but with my “PharmiWeb editor” hat on, I find it incredibly useful to keep track of multiple companies (and topics) in one place. Tools like Feedly, make it very simple.

However, probably less than 10% of companies provide a News RSS feed. Which means I either have to trawl round dozens of sites, or as is more often the case, I don’t bother. I’m not sure who’s missing out most?

Now there are tools to turn a website into an RSS feed, but I’ve not found them to be very intuitive or easy to set up: but why should I need to do this, when its far simpler for every company’s website to provide it for me.

Come on guys, make 2014 the year of RSS.
