I have a rather large website and a few weeks ago, I created a feed for the site's content. Last week, out of the blue, the feed showed up as the third highest "site entry page" after the index page and robots.txt with several hundred "site entries" during the course of the week. I've added the feed to My Yahoo and My MSN, and did some "pinging" but not nearly enough of it to account for this high number.
I assume this is good, but I can't translate this into any measurable results on my site. Has anyone else had this experience? What can be done to translate "feed views" into more tangible site statistics? Can I expect to see a higher level of site indexing / search engine rankings because of this?
