I was hoping someone could help me with figuring out how to post rss to my website. I want to post news headlines from Google news, cnn, yahoo etc about jobs etc to my website. I found this code which does a nice job, but I would like more posts - it only adds 4 posts from the rss how do I change that number? any ideas?

Any configuration of the display would be done through Google not on the page. I don't use them myself so I don't know what they give you.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld koblogging.

That code appears to be from the Google AJAX Search API Developer's Guide [code.google.com]. You would want to read through their documentation to get a better idea of the elements that can be manipulated.

If you'd like another way to get feeds on your site we have a classic post: Short guide to include RSS on your website [webmasterworld.com] that uses Magpie to do much the same.
