Google Reader Alternative? Maybe answer is Yandex

And Google did it again;

We launched Google Reader in 2005 in an effort to make it easy for people to discover and keep tabs on their favorite websites. While the product has a loyal following, over the years usage has declined. So, on July 1, 2013, we will retire Google Reader. Users and developers interested in RSS alternatives can export their data, including their subscriptions, with Google Takeout over the course of the next four months.Google Blog

 You can create a Yandex Mail from here:

 I tried and i liked it :)

I explained how you can import your rss to Yandex mail in pictures. Just follow those and you are ready to go :)

    I’m still not sure why but, so far, this is the Google Reader alternative that I’ve felt more confident about.

    Many thanks for your tip!

      Only missing “next item” button from Google Reader. Otherwise, its good enough

    Well, my first thoughts about it, apparently after the import has finished.

    At first, by comparing GR “All Items” content with Yandex “All”, it doesn’t seem to match at all, with Yandex missing a lot – and I really mean a lot – of entries that are shown in GR: in Reader, I have around 500 or more entries for today; Yandex shows only 2 !!??

      I checked those situation for first 2-3 days. Its fact that google reader is fetching new content faster because most of systems like WordPress is automatically pinging Google. Your new rss is not missing, its just not fetched yet.
