Hi,

I am quite a novice. I am starting off with regular feeds on my site. First, I would like to know, how beneficial can RSS feeds be and second I am confused between "Digg and MSN Widget" Vs. Google and FeedBurner. Can anyone advice me about the right way to go about this?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld cliffhanger.

how beneficial can RSS feeds be

An RSS feed is just a summary of content from your site. It helps people keep track of your site without visiting it. That's a benefit to your visitors who prefer feed aggregators to the website.

I'm not clear on what you're asking here. These are unrelated services for the most part. How were you thinking of using these services?

well i went to a site called www.addthis.com, I know that digg is user-voted-content, and feeds are completely different from them. But I believe there is some integration going on. I do not understand how though, can you throw some light?

These are different ways to get users to bookmark your site, or to add a link to your site, or track your site in some way. I think what you're seeing mostly is more along the lines of social bookmarking rather than straight data feeds like RSS.
