I was wondering is news feed(Web Feeds) are still important to put on a website for new fresh content?

I put a few on my website a few years ago and now they are dead. I wanted to see if it's still worth it to update them or just trash them.

News feeds were the big thing 6 years ago for giving fresh new content on your website. My feeds were in .php.

I don't know if Google or others now see this now as a penalty?

News feeds can be useful - but results will depend on your overall online strategy. Just having one available, technically, isn't a magic potion.
