|does an RSS feed from Feedburner get spidered on the subsequent websites where it is being displayed? |
That would depend on how the feed is integrated into the site. If they're presented in a spiderable format they will be looked at the same as everything else on the page.
|Do the outgoing 'links' on those sites (within the RSS feed) therefore count as backlinks to wherever they be going to? |
If the links are on the page, and the site owner has not nofollow'ed them or run them through a redirect of some sort, then why would they be treated any differently from other links?

My questins arose from reading what other 'experts' on this have said... I couldn't see any reason for the links to not be followed but wanted a second opinion.

What have you read that would lead you to believe that these links would be treated differently from others?

But from what I gather Feedburner is not one of those?

Not exactly. If you are using a wordpress RSS then spiders do not exactly index it. But links are internal so it is useful. Plus when you using from external source like bloglines, netvibes it is helpful.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld koushikrajagopalan.
Sorry, you lost me there. Which of the points above are you disagreeing with?
I don't use WordPress. What's the difference between a standard RSS feed and a WordPress RSS feed?
