Has many of you starting using ror files? Have you noticed better listing or increased accuracy of results. The standard seem to becoming quite popular and has been expanding.

I have used ror on my site and it does seem to be indexed but google lists it as a unrecognized file format. Do we think this will change?

Google just treats it like any other xml/rss file (it refers to them as unrecognized file formats as well).

Since Google has only recently introduced sitemaps in xml format, I think it will be a year or two before it attempts to understand ror. When it does then the spammers will find a way to destroy the format!

I hope not, I built a few engines that read them as they are compatible with rss.

Google just seems to index them like any other file
