Once you have created the rss file (either by hand or by script) all you have to do is put a link to it, as you would to any other file.
If you want a feed only to help you in the search engines you may be disappointed.
You need in the head section the following code :
<link rel="alternate" title="your title" type="application/rss+xml" href="http://yourdomain.com/yourfeed.xml" />
Thanks for this. I will try it.
Now, I don't want a feed only to help me with search engines, however, I am curious as to why you say I would be disappointed. Is there something I should know?
I use lastRSS <snip> to parse RSS feeds and re-use the content. I'm not sure it will help your rankings though.

try a better search engine!
I am presuming that you don't want to put your site up as RSS Feeds but you want to take other feeds from other sites and put them on your site.
There are answers to all the above in this forum. If you can't find them, then please repost with your requirements.
you might search for the article 'How to Create an RSS Feed With Notepad, a Web Server, and a Beer' by Stephen Downes. this should give you the overall idea and some of the basics from where to start looking for tools, etc.
I have about the same problem as the original poster. My site is html, I do not want to turn it into PHP or anything like that, I need to add a couple of other sites' feeds to one of my site's pages. What is the simplest I can do?
