|RSS Feed > 'Unrecognized Filetype' by Google|
Everything seems fine, and the main RSS Feed now has a PR4. However I noticed Google lists the file type as 'Unrecognized'. Surely this cannot be good.
Here is my document header, should I change it to something more Google-friendly? :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE rss PUBLIC "-//Netscape Communications//DTD RSS 0.91//EN" "http://my.netscape.com/publish/formats/rss-0.91.dtd">
Google recognizes mine the same way, even when it was generated by blogger (google owned).
When you do a search on google for keyword filetype:rss most of the results come up as "File Format: Unrecognized - View as HTML "
Check the ones that end in .rss that show snippetts and do not have "unrecognized":
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd ">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
