Google Trying to Remove RSS Feeds from Search Results

Sep 17, 2007 - 8:36 am 4 by

The other day we asked Should Google Display RSS Feeds in Web Search Results?

Saturday, GoogleGuy, replied to the WebmasterWorld thread saying:

I think that we've been getting better recently about not showing RSS/Atom feeds in the search results.

So it appears that Google feels, in many cases, RSS/Atom feeds should not be shown in the search results.

I see that Search Engine Land's feed URL has dropped in the rankings for a search on search engine land but the feed can still be found on the first page.
