Link Tag to Enable Auto-Discovery of RSS Files
I found out that some of the weblog aggregation tools look for a specific link tag in the head portion of a site's home page in order to locate that site's RSS file. This is the kind of thing that can be added to a template without changing any code.
Here's the code itself:
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS" href="__YOUR_RSS_URL__">
For more information about the research I did to arrive at this conclusion, see the article How Weblog Monitors Automatically Discover RSS Feeds on CTDATA.com.
