Digesto relies on a valid feed to populate email content. RSS and Atom feeds are the standard formats for delivering regularly changing web content. Almost every website comes with a built-in feed. Not sure where this is? Here are a few ways to help find your feed.

1. Locate Your Feed URL

If a site is built using WordPress, simply add "/feed" at the end of the URL of your website. You can also do this for categories and pages, to get specific RSS feeds from your site.

Still in the dark? Try your sitemap or look for a secondary navigation option from the blog homepage or website footer.

2. Test Your Feed

For your feed to work nicely with RSS email applications, it must comply with RSS or Atom standards. Use this third-party tool to test your feed.

If your feed is ok, you'll see "Congratulations!". If something is wrong with it, you"ll see "Sorry..." and the service will list invalid elements that require your attention.
