The <link rel="alternate" describes an alternate version of the page you're on. The Recent Video feed is not an alternate version of the front page of videoblogging.info and thus it shouldn't have such a link-element. > You should also place a manual link to the feed somewhere on the page > itself, so users can copy/paste the link into a news aggregator. I see > you > do have an "RSS" button, but it doesn't link to the feed. The button points to <URL:http://videoblogging.info/ping/?mode=__rss&gt; and that's the URL of the feed. Is the feed not working for you or? - Andreas (the guy who slammed together videoblogging.info) -- Personal: <http://www.solitude.dk&gt; File Thingie - PHP File Manager <http://www.solitude.dk/filethingie/&gt;
