RSS feed and Yahoo indexing

I have a RSS feed upload from my site like

When I point this URL I am getting the valid data in RSS format, I also could get it to My.Yahoo.com

However, I find that this feed is not indexed in Yahoo like my other Blog site.

Is it the reason that this site is not a Blog


Can it be that I have 'Disallow' both these rss/index.php and rsslist.php

Please help me.

Yahoo does not list RSS feeds in the normal search results.

When adding to My Yahoo, if you find that it displays the title in the list, you can understand that Yahoo has spidered your feed.

Yahoo does not list RSS feeds in the normal search results.

What do you call this? I see the following in the SERPs all the time for sites with feeds:

RSS: View as XML

How do you get your site's RSS feed listed on yahoo?

The easiest way is to sign up for My Yahoo and then subscribe to your RSS feed. That should get it into your system. Make sure that your RSS feed has the link to your webpage in it.

You should get your feed indexed within a few days if you ad to your own "my yahoo" page.

Also get a "my msn" page and add to that also for fast indexing.
