FeedYes (Via Drexel CoAS E-Learning.) I agree with Jean-Claude. This looks powerful. I’ll have to find a context in which to try it out… maybe one of you will. Direct Link: “FeedYes.com gives rss feeds to websites without feeds”

Unfortunately it looks like it only works with websites that have some sort of “news updates”. (Like the Dr. Phil site they use as an example). But it would be really nice to have a service that would provide updates of ANY website by RSS.
I have been using http://www.feedwhip.com to stay updated on websites that have no RSS feed. The service works a bit like a wiki ‘history’ page or ‘track changes’ in MS Word. You receive an e-mail whenever a website has been updated.
It doesn’t create an RSS feed and it will only send you an email (nothing for your feed reader), but I think there are some “e-mail to RSS” tools out there that could change that?
Only real (and not even that big) disadvantage is that it actually does the same as one of those track changes services. So not only new information on the website is displayed, also you are informed of deleted information. This gives you extra info you might not be looking for if you want to use it as a news service.
