As for RSS feeds, it's best not to have any for the majority of sites.
I came across a survey of 500 people done in November that indicated people are using RSS less and less. It's hard to find data on how many real people are using it, because it's muddied by those who don't know what the technology is, but may still be using RSS through apps and whatnot to get their news.
I'm contemplating getting rid of my feeds, since so much of it goes straight to scrapers, even though they attract some visitors.
