How do I add sources quickly?

Many sources can be added simply by entering the website address, Netvibes will do the rest.

We're going to track CNN.com

  • Click “Add”, then click “Reading App” and enter the URL of the web site you want to track.
  • Drag and drop the feed icon to your dashboard.
  • Repeat for all of the blogs, news sources, social network profiles you wish to monitor.

If Netvibes doesn't find the feed for your source, go directly to the source website to focus your feed to the correct section of the site. It's particularly beneficial to target your feed to the relevant section for news sources that cover many topics. We're going to monitor the Footwear section of Women's Wear Daily.


  • On the site you wish to add, click on the link for the RSS page. If you don't see an RSS feed link, look for the RSS icon.


  • Find the section you wish to monitor and click the RSS feed link.

  • Copy the URL of the RSS feed from your browser's URL bar.

  • Repeat the steps in section 1, Add sources quickly, using the URL you copied.

Remember: don't restrict too much! Adding multiple sections from the same site is recommended.
