help with RSS feed help with RSS feed amythepoet msg:1543003 11:12 pm on Jul 20, 2004 (gmt 0) Hi,
I read the other day about RSS feeds and would like to get my site submitted to them.
I contacted yahoo and just got a note back and now am unclear as to how to proceed.
Could somebody help me please?

You want to get Yahoo to spider your RSS feed? The easiest way I know of to do this is to add the feed to your My Yahoo! page in the RSS Headlines section. amythepoet msg:1543005 5:34 am on Jul 21, 2004 (gmt 0)
I think I am s till confused. If I did this, would that mean that i would get Yahoo news on my website? That isn't what I would like.
I thought it was a way to get my site more visiblity somehow on yahoo... but I guess I was wrong.

No. That's a trick to get Yahoo to notice
your RSS feed. Yahoo will then inclue an XML indication in the SERPs under your site's listing. amythepoet msg:1543007 10:27 am on Jul 21, 2004 (gmt 0)
Oh, well then pehaps it would be good to have the RSS feed. I was under the impression though that RSS feeds were primarily for new-esque sites and I do not think mine would qualify as such.

RSS feeds can contain all sorts of things...news, page text, images, media files, you name it. It's just another way of getting your content out there. You can put your entire website into RSS if you like.
There are some good RSS resources over on the
Lockergnome site [ channels.lockergnome.com] for the beginner.
