How to export your google reader subscriptions

Here’s what you need to do to retrieve all your subscription data from Google Reader Step 1.Click here to download a copy of your Google Reader data via Google Takeout.  Step 2. Click on the “Create Archive” button at the bottom to create a backup of your Google Reader account. You will then jump to the download screen where you will see the progress of your backup. My backup was small so it was already completed by the time the page opened. The files for your Google Reader account will be bundled into a zip file and can be downloaded to your computer. Step 3. Click on the download button to start transferring the Google Reader files to your computer.  Depending on your settings, your file may be saved to a different location. You may also be prompted to open the file with the archive utility or save it to your drive. We recommend saving the file directly to the drive. If you download the file and forget where it was saved, you can locate it by opening the “Downloads” window in your browser. Step 4. Locate the downloaded zip file on your computer. Go to Feedspot’s Import Subscription Page and upload the zip file that you just downloaded. If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to email us at team@feedspot.com   -Team...
