Google allows you to make an RSS feed to any webpage

So you do not need to have an RSS feed button to tell you that a website has changed.

Google allows you make an RSS feed for any webpage and will inform you if something changes in that page.

These custom feeds are most useful if you want to be alerted whenever a specific page has been updated. For example, if you wanted to follow Google.org’s latest products, just type “http://www.google.org/products.html” into Reader’s “Add a subscription” field. Click “create a feed”, and Reader will periodically visit the page and publish any significant changes it finds as items in a custom feed created just for that page.

Now, you would need to create a separate feed for every page on the website to take note of every change. However, for websites without RSS feeds, this could be pretty handy.

Also, I know this works in Google Reader. It should work with other feed readers (I would be shocked if it does not).
