Hi all,

Have set up 5 different RSS feeds on our website available to anyone. We would obviously like the world and his uncle to know about them.

Anyone got any ideas for how we can get these feeds listed for people to find them?

Please Help

Put your feeds in auto discovery tags on all pages of your site.

Use pingomatic.com and/or pings.ws each time a post is made.

Submit to RSS and blog search engines.

Oops, sorry about that. I'll just copy the post info rather than linking in the future.

Yes I checked on this and changed the day and month to 3 letters, Is it necessary to give the time as well. Also I have given this one date for 6 entries in RSS, is it ok?

Hi Toprank,

Please explain more about :
1.Put your feeds in auto discovery tags on all pages of your site.

Put a link rel alternate tag between <head> and </head> in this way

<link rel="alternate" href="myfeed.url" title="Feed title" type="application/rss+xml">
