As you know, I write for several blogs and LinkedIn on top of Social Media Slant. So, to make things as easy as possible for my readers, I combined all the feeds into a unique one. Subscribers get all my latest articles in their inboxes directly from one source!
Yes, you read it right. My LinkedIn articles are there.
“But I thought LinkedIn posts were not supposed to have an RSS feed.” Me too, until very recently. No blog talks about it (and I read many). So, I had to find the trick myself.
In this article I would like to show you two things: How to 1) follow your favorite LinkedIn authors from your Feedly; and 2) find the RSS feed for their posts.
Adding your favorite LinkedIn authors to Feedly
- Visit a profile and click the “See more” link in the Posts area.
On the next page, you will see something like this:
- Locate the Posts page’s permalink in your address bar. For example: https://www.linkedin.com/today/author/41277595.
Note: If you see no “See more” link, it means that the author has written 3 or fewer articles. But the page exists. Just copy the string of numbers following the “view?id=” tag in the address bar, and paste it at the end of this link: https://www.linkedin.com/today/author/.
- Now, log in to your Feedly dashboard.
- Enter the Posts page’s permalink in the search bar.
5. Click the green +feedly button and you are set!
Finding the RSS feed for a LinkedIn author
- Copy the string of numbers at the end of the permalink of their Posts page. For example, mine is 41277595 [https://www.linkedin.com/today/author/41277595]
- Paste those numbers right after “https://www.linkedin.com/channels/rss/influencers/” [https://www.linkedin.com/channels/rss/influencers/41277595]
- Et voilà!
I hope you found this quick tutorial useful! :-)
