Google Reader 2

Google Reader 2

To use Google Reader you have several options.  When you are browsing online and you come across a site you’re interested in subscribing to, simply click on their subscribe button.

Most often if you have Google Reader installed, your computer will recognize that, and you’ll be given the option to view the blog feed on your iGoogle Homepage or Google Reader.

If you have an iGoogle homepage then it’s time to decide where you want to view this blog.  Simply choose Google Reader and you’re good to go.

You can also subscribe to a blog or RSS feed by using the subscribe bookmark function.  Simply drag the link to your bookmarks bar.  You can then click the bookmark to view it in Google Reader.

You can also manually add subscriptions to your Google Reader by using the “add subscriptions” function.  By clicking on the add option while Google Reader is open, you can enter the URL of the blog or website and add it to your list.

You can also browse the preloaded feed bundles to discover new blogs and websites or search by keyword.

Any site with the little orange widget which looks like an echo, several curving lines and a dot in the upper right hand corner of the url bar, is one you can subscribe to and read through your reader of choice.

Just click on it. If you are not logged in, Google will ask you to do so. It is that easy.
