iGoogle conversion to igHome.com via 4 minute tutorial

iGoogle,  Google's very nice 'start page' that doubles as an extremely flexible RSS feed reader, is being retired on 11/1/2013. Google Reader goes away sooner than that, on July 1st! Here's a short tutorial I put together about how to move your iGoogle RSS feeds en masse to igHome, which has a very similar look and feel to iGoogle.


I looked into a few replacements for iGoogle (and Reader for that matter). igHome fit the bill for me. What are you switching to? Inquiring minds want to know!

Thank you so much! I have been frantically searching for an acceptable replacement to iGoogle. How kind of you to include the tutorial as well. I'm spreading the word.

I switched to igHome to replace igoogle. The only thing I am having trouble with is that when I type in, oh let's say,"home depot", it doesn't give me a suggested underlined website to go straight to. Any suggestions?

Hmm.. Not sure about that. There's a Feedback and Help link at the bottom - some FAQs are there, or you can email support. Good luck and thanks for checking our site!

Ed hope all is well

Question is ighome safe to use ? also once you change your password in ighome does that link with my gmai account stops the link with igoogle? I may not be explaining right but i hope you can try to understand what i'm trying to say.

Wow!
I had given up, and had tried to get a Chrome page with apps to replace igoogle. Now I can try to implement your video instructions. THANK YOU!!!!

Another great option that I have been using is http://startme.com because it is very simple, user friendly and intuitive.

I have also been able to recommend it to friends in other parts of the world because it exists in many languages. I really like it.
