I currently use Feedzilla for my news feed across many sites because I can specify a keyword to show news around.

However, the problem is that it's a javascript and search engines cant read it.

Does anyone know of an RSS feed that can show news based on a keyword but show it in HTML that is readable by search engines?

You could look at using something like Yahoo Pipes to aggregate several feeds targeting your keyword and output a feed you could add to your site.

Will Yahoo Pipes allow me to find the keyword-driven RSS feeds or is it just used for parsing the feeds after I find them on my own?

I've seen Pipes that aggregate feeds, filter the results (to make sure links are unique), and then sort them by date. Filtering for specific keywords shouldn't be much different. You can do some very complicated things with Pipes. Browse some of the examples. You may find one that does what you want.

The problem I found with yahoo pipes is that it is horribly slow.

It is a very cool tool, but not feasible for a production site.
