Feedly is a popular RSS reader that lets users follow blogs and websites from a single application. This guide covers how your blog appears on Feedly and how to view metrics related to Feedly.
Before you begin
- Squarespace websites have built-in RSS feeds for all Blog, Products, Events, Gallery, and Album pages. For more information, visit Using RSS feeds.
- If your homepage doesn't have an RSS Feed (for example, if it's a Layout Page and not a Blog Page), enter the URL for the Blog Page, not your homepage.
- If your site has a site-wide password or if your Blog Page has a page password, the content won't display in Feedly.
Add a Squarespace blog to Feedly
Find your Blog Page in Feedly by searching for its RSS URL:
- Replace sitename with your built-in domain.
- Replace pageURL with the Blog Page's URL slug.
What content displays on Feedly
Feedly will display the 20 most recent posts with the following content:
|First image in the post||Feedly will use whichever image appears first in the post. This could be the first Image Block, first image in a Gallery Block, or a Video Block's thumbnail.|
|A text snippet||Feedly pulls the first 100 to 200 characters into a text snippet. Blog excerpts (added in the Options tab of the Post Editor) aren't used.|
|The post's author||The post's author in Squarespace will automatically display unless the post is in Feedly's Featured section for most recent posts.|
See traffic from Feedly
With Squarespace Analytics, you can view the total number of RSS subscribers to your blog and see referral sources to your blog's content, which might include Feedly.
Note: Squarespace can provide general help with your blog's RSS feed. Feedly is a third-party service that falls outside of Squarespace support. For help with Feedly, visit their blog.
