Hi

I have written a php page mydomain.com/rss.php when this page is called it reads the database for certain data and create a RSS feed in real time and display in browser...

Is it necessary to store RSS feed physically on my server for search engines or this link would work? because currently i am not storing the RSS on my server, i have a RSS icon on site and when visitor click it the rss.php page generates rss feed in real time from database.

thanks

If some of the feed tracking services like FeedBurner are anything to go by, the answer would be no.

No, I would guess 99% of all RSS feeds are generated dynamically. Besieds, I don't think the search engine has any way of knowing whether your feed was dynamically generated or static - all it knows is that it was served an XML feed.
