When I search for "Tool Orders" in Feedster, my blog doesn't come up ?

Question:
Hi there,


I am new to blogging and feedster.

I added my blog
http://ramenon.blogspot.com/atom.xml
to my feedster, some 36 hours back.

When I search "Tool Orders" in myfeedster, this blog doesn't come up. What am I doing wrong ?

Answer

Ok the problem here isn't that your blog doesn't come up, its that you simply aren't seeing it.  Your blog's feed is this:


http://ramenon.blogspot.com/atom.xml

The default sort order for Feedster is date sorted, most recent blog posts 1st. And the problem when you search for "Tool Orders" is that there are lots of other blogs that have those terms. So if you search for text that only you have you're more likely to find your blog.

This search:

http://feedster.com/search.php?q=Bill+Quain&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&sort=date

shows your blog.

RSS Feeds of ONLY MP3 Content

Hi,

I primarily use rss feeds on my mp3 player (audiofeeds/podcasts). Is there a way to
refine a search to encapsulated mp3 content only? If so, and I've missed this
capability, please forgive. Otherwise, please consider this for your feature list.

Thanks


Answer:
We sort of have this and sort of don't (the don't is that there's a bug).

There's a partial implementation of this on http://feedster.tv/ and there is an
enclosures feed of only MP3 content at:
