    So I'm collecting all my RSS feeds from all my bookmarking accounts to be submitted to my feed directories. I notice that Mister-Wong's bookmarks are NO follow, here's an example:

    http://www.mister-wong.com/topics/exemple/

    Now when you call up the RSS feed page, the same links are DO follow:

    http://www.mister-wong.com/rss/tags/exemple/hot/

    I haven't fully master exploiting RSS stuff yet, so I'm wondering what is going on here? I know the actual RSS page is a .xml file. Will Google look at this file and consider it a link? Do RSS xml pages give my any sort of link juice?

    When I submit an RSS page to a feed directory, is that directory just linking back to my site or does it store a copy of it somehow?

    Yes, I believe that xml links are still counted by Google
