Getting the Category-Specific URL:
RSS feeds follow a certain taxonomy, with specific category feeds looking like the one here:

http://www.yourstore.com/rss.php?categoryid=X
By replacing the "www.yourstore.com" with your store's domain, and finding the category ID of the appropriate category, you can create the RSS Feed URLs for your categories.

1.) Login to your store's control panel.
2.) Click on Products and then View Categories.

Your URL should look something like the following:

http://www.yourstore.com/rss.php?categoryid=14
Now you can post the URL anywhere you wish to have people able to subscribe to the RSS feed.
