I could really use opinions in the fallowing issues. I am participating in development of a local news site (articles are divided in categories). First of all I am thinking how to structure rss files.
One rss for all articles (could be really big one) or one for each category?
Than what is the best way to submit those rss files to Google (I mean that pages are already submitted through sitemap), so does have any meaning to add those rss files urls in a sitemap , or do you thing there is a better way to submit and not think about duplicated urls submitted ? (Of course in latter option the rss icon in each category will point to the RSS file for that category).
Also does inclusion of these rss files in rss directories play role in SEO like links to the site (more? in a deferent way?)
Also any other aspect of RSS role and use for SEO I didn’t caver is more than welcomed. Thank you in advance for your responses
