Brief history

  • domain.com was associated with a blogspot.
  • domain.com changed to an institutional site and features a small code instructing which file should be retrieved by RSS readers.

    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" href="http://domain.tumblr.com/rss" /> 
  • Google Reader didn't update the RSS to the new blog.

  • domain.com/blog retrieves the posts correctly because it was never used for that purpose in the older blog.

How is it possible to force Google Reader to update the cached information? I tried using another RSS reader and it worked perfectly with the new domain. However, when I tried to follow domain.com in another Google Reader account, it still showed the posts from the older blog.

It's been almost a month that the aforementioned changes were made.

The problem was solved by adding the mentioned code in the old blogspot.
