    my current hosting account doesn't support php (i'm not ready to upgrade yet) but I heard there may be ways to still use rss feeds without a php server. would rss feeds displayed through php alternatives be detectable to search engines just like rss done with php? Thanks

    An RSS feed need only be an XML file.

    IIRC, if another site is parsing your RSS feed(e.g. posting the info from your RSS feed on their site), it appears as standard HTML to anyone checking out that site.

    so only if you create an rss feed of YOUR OWN site's content will it be seen by search engines?

    ?

    It's only possible to create an RSS feed out of your own data in the first place. Well, there ARE ways to scrape data off of other sites, but that's neither here nor there.

    When you display the contents of an RSS feed that someone else created onto your site, it shows up as HTML, and therefore is looked at as part of your website.
