RSS feed for Reddit searches



I'm a big fan of RSS and Reddit. I follow all my subreddits in Feedly, and it turns out that you can also follow Reddit search results via an RSS feed. All you need to do is add ".xml" to the Reddit search results URL, right after the word "search".

For example, here's a Reddit search query for professional actor George Takei:
http://www.reddit.com/search?q=george+takei&sort=new&t=all

And here's the corresponding feed URL you can plug into your RSS reader:
http://www.reddit.com/search.xml?q=george+takei&sort=new&t=all

Note that you'll want to sort the results by "New" to get posts chronologically in your feed reader. Big hat tip to Jay Neely, from whom I discovered this trick over on Quora.
