How to Convert Your Google+ Stream to an RSS Feed

Have you ever thought about turning your public Google+ posts into an RSS feed? Having an RSS feed for your Google+ stream is not common, but it can be done with a Web service called Googomi. This is great if you’re looking to crosspost from Google+ to another social network, or even if you want to allow others to subscribe to your Google+ posts by email or in their favorite feed reader.

Here’s how to get your very own RSS feed for your Google+ stream.

1. First, go to the Googomi website and click on the green “your profile” button in the middle of the home page.

Click on the "your profile" button on the home page.

2. Select the Google email address associated with the Google+ profile that you want an RSS feed for and click on “allow.”

Select the Google email address associated with the Google+ profile that you want an RSS feed for.

3. Next, select the Google account that you want to use, and on the next page click on “allow access.”

Select the Google account that you want to use with Googomi.

4. Finally, you’ll be directed back to Googomi, where you’ll see your custom RSS feed and your ten most recent posts.

How you choose to use this RSS feed is up to you, but I’d suggest using it in an IFTTT recipe. The possibilities of what IFTTT can do with RSS feeds are practically endless. One thing to do with it is send your Google+ posts to another site or app. You can send your Google+ posts to:

As you can see, Googomi is the perfect tool for exporting your public Google+ posts to RSS. It’s easy to use and only takes a few minutes. You can then use that RSS feed for a number of things, like crossposting to various social networks. This is a great way to bring more traffic to your Google+ profile, and also great for sharing those gems that you only post to Google+.

  1. Thank you for this post. I was sad to see that I can only export my public entries, but that is better than nothing.

    • You’re welcome. I’m thinking they just can’t access your private or limited posts since they’re only viewable to certain people. You’re right, it is better than nothing!

  2. Hi, I wrote Googomi – thanks very much for the clear and helpful instructions!

    I’d love to be able to add non-public entries, but unfortunately the Google+ API does not let one access any circle information at this time, so we can’t extract posts within those circles to export. If and when Google opens up their API further I will add this feature.

  3. Hi there,

    I am looking for a way to either convert an RSS feed into posts on a Google+ page or vice versa, Google+ page posts into RSS.

    Any idea how to do that?

  4. Hi Danien,

    Yes, I am on IFTTT. The issue is they don’t have a Google+ Channel.

    And if I create an RSS out of my Google+ Channel, I get expanded links and pictures in the RSS feed. So I cannot use that to then post to Twitter using IFTTT.

    First of all, here is what I am trying to achieve.

    I am looking to setup a social media marketing network where messages will be scheduled and posted to many locations and by many accounts.

    To start with, I have setup a Hootsuite account that does the initial bulk scheduling and that is working great.

    However, Hootsuite has a limit of 350 messages at one time in all schedules. So if I have to send to twitter and google+ from Hootsuite, that reduces my messages I can schedule at one time to 175.

    From Twitter, I am then looking to post these messages to FaceBook page, FaceBook Group, Tumblr, Delicious, Reddit, Diigo, etc. All this is working well from IFTTT.

    I have generated an RSS for my own Twitter feed. And so anyone else who wants to participate simply sets up an IFTTT account, uses this RSS feed and posts to their Twitter. And then, they can go from their Twitter to their FaceBook Page, FaceBook Group, Tumblr, etc. etc.

    However, since IFTTT does not have Google+, I am having to use extra messages from Hootsuite.

    So ideally I am looking for a way to post either from Google+ to Twitter or vice versa from Twitter to Google+.

    And all I need is for take the message with hashtags and links and post it as it is without expanding it or changing anything.

    I have looked at Friends+Me. They allow Google+ posts to be posted to Twitter. However, they expand out links and images and shorten hashtags. And the shortened hashtags don’t work.

    All I may want to do is filter hashtags. But nothing else.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Best Regards,

    Ashish.

      • Thanks Damien.

        Buffer don’t have G+ in their free package. You have to pay to get G+.

        Unfortunately I could pay the same amount to Hootsuite.

        The challenge we have is Google+ is very restrictive with their API. So while they allow apps like Everypost to post to them using their API, they have not made their API publicly available.

        Hence, there are not that many tools out there that can post to G+.

        Anyway…thanks all the same.

        Best Regards,

        Ashish.
