Yahoo no longer is adding the "Add To My Yahoo" link to the RSS feed underneath the snippet for the html page. But rss files do appear in the results.

Having an RSS feed hasn't been giving pages a little boost for about 8 months.

(Or do you mean you can no longer add rss files to your MyYahoo account? Well, you can if you use the code behind an Add To Yahoo button)

I did not know that. I was wondering why Yahoo would never pick up my RSS feed for inclusion by my listing (with the "add to my yahoo" link). Then, they stopped showing these enhancements altogether.

We did start a post a few weeks ago about this, trying to figure out what was going on [webmasterworld.com...]

I think that 8 months may co-incide with the time when they stopped adding the "Add To My Yahoo" link. I have a site with rss feeds on each page and new pages every week so I tend to notice these things!

I have also seen my Yahoo traffic drop quite a lot since they removed tha "Add" link. I guess the whole thing was abused by spammers so much they thought they should drop it.
