Hey ! Just what we needed. In its endless efforts to make the life easier for webmasters, Google has now understood that indexing RSS feeds and Atoms could be yet another value addition to their arsenal of indexing tools.
Google generally would use incoming links, sitemaps, etc to index new files and websites, and withÂ this new addition newer websites wonâ€™t find it hard to get indexed on Google. All you need to do is set up your RSS/Atom feed and as an added measure make sure your Robots.txt file doesnâ€™t block it.
In my opinion this feature had been in practice for quite some time, but its only now that Google announced it officially.
Anyways, all good for webmasters.
