Creating WordPress RSS Feeds for Search Results

In order to create a WordPress RSS feed for search results, you need to simply use the URL format shown below:

http://example.com/?s=searchterm&feed=rss2

This enables you to get all search results related to a certain search term. For example, some of our users may be particularly interested in a gutenberg related post but at the moment we don’t have any posts categorized as gutenberg. So, if our subscribers wanted to see all posts associated with gutenberg, we would use the URL below:

http://example.com/?s=gutenberg&feed=rss2

How can I use the Search Results RSS Feed?

You could offer those users who show a particular interest in a certain subject a newsletter that notifies them whenever there are new posts associated with that search term.
