The 'button' in the bottom-left of my front page is definitely the most
ubiquitous. If you press it, rather than getting an XML item (code that is
daunting to some), you will find yourself in a page where I have placed the
proper buttons which imply feed versions. For people who are intimidated by
feeds, there are also vendor-specific buttons which they might find
helpful. Look at the source of that little vendor-specific section. You
just need to shove the URL's of your feeds in the right place.
I can confirm that more and more people slowly subscribe to my site. I only
regret not doing it earlier.
Hope it helps,
