Welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com].

The first step would to make sure that there is a link going to it from your website/blog.

Once you do this you should be able to type the url into the search engines and see what information they return. If the search returns: "Sorry, no information is available for the URL www.example.net/feed.xml" it means it has not been indexed. Check your logs to see if it has been crawled.

Yea my last rss has been crawled by yahoo ang google
yahoo indexed it wellbut google crawled it and rhar says in the search : File Format: Unrecognized

the rss is validate 2.0

my file is www.sites.com/RSS/index.xml
and the meta in the homepage is in the <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title=" RSS news" href="http://www.site.com/RSS/index.xml">

my question is :
is-it the wright way to be indexed?

Google does not directly support the RSS feed file format. So it may crawl the file if there are links to it but will display "Unrecognised file format" as you mentioned.
