Making a news feed spider friendly
How to add spider friendly news feed to home page?

I want to add a news feed to my website home page. I don't want to use JavaScript, because the search engines won't crawl the content. I can add the news feed using an ASP script, but this will require me to change the extension of my home page from index.htm to index.asp But I don't want to change the file name of the home page to index.asp because I'm afraid it will affect my PageRank or some other aspect of my SEO. Is there a workaround?

Thanks.

I would imagine that you should be able to change the file handling on your server to be able to parse the RSS/handle asp regardless of the extension. I know that you can do something like this with an apache server, but not 100% on an IIs.
