I'm using Google Reader and I'm looking for a way to hide some feeds from my stream of all unread articles.

Basically if you subscribe to a feed all its new articles appear in the list. I don't want all feeds to appear there. Is there a way to accomplish this? I searched for such a functionality inside Google Reader itself and also through Google but couldn't come up with a good solution myself.

You can't selective choose which feeds are excluded from the "All Items" stream.

You can, however, tag feeds with multiple tags.

So, if you organize your feeds by topic, e.g.

  • Technology
  • Movie Stars
  • Cooking

How about also organizing by importance? You can use tags like

  • Read daily
  • Read when I have nothing else to do
  • Read only when desperate
  • All Items except the feeds I don't care much about

Then just make sure you tag the feeds you really want to read in a stream with the same tag.

In your settings, you can change the Reader start page to be one of your tags.
