How many news in one RSS feed What is practicall? jetteroheller msg:3187267 10:52 am on Dec 13, 2006 (gmt 0) I have on my German sites 5 and on my English sites 3 RSS feeds, some German sites are not translated into English.
The sites have up to 900 pages.
I have an own written CMS, which creates the RSS feed.
Now is the question how many items should be in the feed?

I would think you would want to limit it to your 5 or 10 most up-to-date/recently added/newest items on your site.

I don't think you would make many friends if you had people trying to parse a 900+ page website in one feed. It depends on how often you add content to those pages. Generally an RSS feed should only contain newly updated information. Jordo needs a drink msg:3194035 1:55 am on Dec 20, 2006 (gmt 0)
I agree, only 5-10 of the most recent, updated (not static) items.
