Amazon.com Syndicated Content

Amazon.com is now generating RSS: “Selected categories, subcategories and search results in Amazon.com stores now have RSS feeds associated with them, delivering a headline-view of the top 10 bestsellers in that category or set of search results.” (Via Ben Hammersley.)

Very cool!

I sent them feedback on a couple issues: there’s a bunch of whitespace inside the top-level title and link fields, and their RSS auto-discovery link uses type="text/xml" rather than type="application/rss+xml".
