Google recently announced that iGoogle will be discontinued on Nov. 1, 2013. A lot of you have been asking about a way to move all your RSS feeds into a personalized Netvibes dashboard. Good news: it’s easy.
Here are 3 easy steps to making Netvibes your new home…
1. Grab. First, check that you are logged into iGoogle and that you have RSS feeds (some iGoogle apps like CNN are widgets, not real RSS feeds). Then download this link.
2. Convert. Open the file and paste code portion into the box below. Click “Convert to OPML”. Click on “Save as file” to save the file to your hard drive.
Voila! Now all your RSS feeds have a new home at Netvibes. And it’s a really nice home:

- 260k+ built-in apps and feeds.
- Millions of active users since 2006.
