How to add RSS Autodiscovery to your site (Could Not Detect a Feed for This URL)

Posted by & filed under BLOG, WORDPRESS.

I had problem with my website feed some time ago. When I enter my website or blog URL in the feed validateor, I got following error

could-not-detect-feed-for-this-url in wordpress or blogger

It looks like this is a web page, not a feed. I looked for a feed associated with this page, but couldn’t find one.


Here is simple steps to make your website or blog feed is valid. Just copy and paste following code in html source code of blog or WordPress template.

Find </head> tag in the html source of your template and paste following code before </head> tag.

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Smart tutorials RSS Feed" href="" />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Smart tutorials Atom Feed" href="" />

note: In href replace with your blog URL.

Now enter your blog URL in the  feed validateor to check, now you will get following success messgae

Congratulations. This is a valid RSS feed.
