Show off your favorite blogs with a Blog List

Today we’re releasing a new page element for Layouts blogs: Blog List. The Blog List improves on our Link List page element by using blogs’ RSS and Atom feeds to show update times, post titles, and snippets.

Use a Blog List to put a blogroll in your sidebar, or make a few to categorize the blogs you read. The Blog List works well for any page that has an RSS or Atom feed, so you can get creative: link to news sites, podcasts, Twitter streams, search results, or anything else with a feed.

Here’s a quick summary of the features that a Blog List gives you:

Link to blogs, web pages, and feeds from your blog’s sidebar, with an optional favicon

For pages with RSS and Atom feeds, Blog List can show last updated time, post title, and a snippet of the latest post

Sort links alphabetically or by last update time
Show all links, or hide some behind a “show all” link

Import subscriptions from Google Reader

Blog List links are visible to search engine crawlers, so your blog’s PageRank and reputation flow to those you link to

Want to see it in action? We made a help video to walk you through adding and configuring a Blog List:





Thanks go out to everyone who chimed in on the Blogger in draft blog while this feature was being developed. You helped us a lot!

Tip: Want to show more posts from a single blog? Use the Feed page element to put any RSS or Atom feed in your blog’s sidebar.
