How To Get Full RSS Feed Content In Google Reader

Most of the web sites that have a news feed only display the headline and a brief introduction to the article. So the times when you had to leave Google Reader in order to see the whole article were not few, but we have a solution for fixing this annoying issue encountered in RSS feeds.

RSS feed¬†stands for¬†‚ÄĚReally Simple Syndication‚ÄĚ or ‚ÄúRich Site Summary‚ÄĚ and is just the feature you need to keep your readers that have signed in to receive¬†RSS feed¬†from your website¬†up to date. I guess you‚Äôve heard (or not) about Feedburner. Of course, there are also other companies that provide RSS services for free or exchange of a fee, but Feedburner is the most famous in the business.

But if you want to receive full RSS feed you can use the services of¬†FiveFilters,¬†FullTextRSSFeed or¬†FeedEx and transform partial RSS. Of course, the services have their limitations: you can only receive a limited number of items every day, so if you are receiving a lot of RSS feeds daily they won’t suit your needs; as well, this will create new RSS feed so you will only be able to access it until the¬†conversion¬†service works.

But Google Chrome users can get full RSS feed without too much trouble. The best way to get full feeds is to use Super Google Reader, which is an extension available for Chrome. So, all you have to do is install Super Google Reader and enjoy full RSS feeds inside it.

In order to install Super Google Reader you have to follow the steps below:

  1. Open Google Chrome, and then install the Super Google Reader extension from here. This will ad the¬†‚ÄúSuper Settings‚ÄĚ menu to your Chrome browser and feeds page.

  2. Choose the “Readable” option for the RRS feeds you want Google Reader to subscribe you for

  3. Congrats!

From now on you will be able to get full RSS feeds text thanks to the Super Google Reader extension of Chrome. So, leaving your reader if you want to see the full content of an article is something you have to forget about.
