Google Rolls Out Feed Reader Tec That Does Not Depend on a Website's Feed

Feed Readers are a great time saver and makes it easy to scan through a lot of websites. The main drawback or problem with feed readers is that they require the websites to have a feed. If it does not then you are out of luck. Not anymore.

"Feeds make it easy to follow updates to all kinds of webpages, from blogs to news sites to Craigslist queries, but unfortunately not all pages on the web have feeds. Today we're rolling out a change in Google Reader that lets you create a custom feed to track changes on pages that don't have their own feed.

These custom feeds are most useful if you want to be alerted whenever a specific page has been updated. For example, if you wanted to follow's latest products, just type "" into Reader's "Add a subscription" field. Click "create a feed", and Reader will periodically visit the page and publish any significant changes it finds as items in a custom feed created just for that page.
