    Hi Joost,

    taking a look at search engine results, i recognized my blog couldn´t be found by google blog search. it took me a lot of time to find out why.

    google blog search needs feed follow and index ... so i had to change some plugin code, getting it work.

    function noindex_feed() {
    if ( is_feed() )
    header( "X-Robots-Tag: index,follow" );

    i know reason of yoast plugin to set feed no index is duplicate content problem, but most search engines are now able to recognize feeds are not and others arnt important. ;P

    now my question, is there a hook or other way to stop plugin setting feed noindex, ´cause at moment i´d to rechange code after every single update.

    nicest would be a little checkbox to set feed index/noindex, follow/nofollow.

    additional i´d like to thank for your great work!

    greatings from germany, with a lot of bad english ;), reading works better than writing, sry
