    I took this from another thread, but don't fully understand the process:

    My questions are:

    1. When using BD to bookmark a feed. Where is the feed located? Is it on another IP?
    2. When pinging the feed, where is the feed located?

    Thanks for any help

    If the feed is on your site then you want that the search engines' crawlers will notice it... that is why you are bookmarking and pinging. Personally, I don't think pinging is necessary.

    If the feed is at a strong RSS site... you probably don't even need to bookmark it since the crawler will find it very fast.

    It can be in a specific folder or in the root folder, it doesn't matter as long as it is viewable to search engines.

    Code:
    example1:  http://www.yourdomain.com/FeedName.xml
    
    example2: http://www.yourdomain.com/FeedFolder/FeedName.xml

    Thanks for that. I heard that some guys like to put the xml file away from the domain they are trying to promote. Does that matter?

    Generally speaking it matters. The issue is what way you are using that feed and what links it contains. If you submit that feed to RSS aggregators then eventually, the links on the feed will be hosted on those sites, then it is less important that it is on your site as well.

    And since (I assume) the main purpose is to index those links in your RSS feed so it is less important that they are on your site as well.

    The XML file will contain backlinks from articles pointing to my site. So, if that is the case what would you recommend? Or, it really doesn't matter?

    it's prefereble to host rss feed on your own server and not html2rss'server...
    just imagine when html2rss "close their shop" for good ! :(

    Does it matter if the xml file is within a folder of the domain that I am trying to RSS? Or, is it preferable that I put it on another IP on my server?

    The entire issue is not that important. Generally it is better to get "endorsement" from third party... meaning that it is better to have the links hosted not on your site. It has a downside as well that you don't have any control on them.

    All in all if your main purpose is just to have an RSS that you'll be able to submit to aggregators then just put it somewhere and submit it.

    Option for using third party rss hosters:

    1. hostmyrss.com
    2. html2rss.com
    3. links2rss.com
