    Are you using RSS feeds from other sources to create your content or are you offering RSS feeds based on your site content?

    You will have to be careful. It will depend on how you plan on using the content. If it's to supplement your content, and you clearly mention the original source, it may be ok.

    If RSS feeds are your primary method of content generation, it won't work because the content won't be yours, it will be duplicate content from somewhere else.

    Using content from other sites' RSS feeds in an automated fashion is lazy. Lazy is rarely effective.

    On the other hand, RSS feeds are great if you're hand-picking good stuff that's interesting to your audience and adding your own perspective to it as unique content. You can do this in the form of full posts referring to one great piece of content (like UpWorthy) or by compiling a list of great stuff (like Buzzfeed).

    Content curation can be very effective if done in a way that adds value.
    There are very many who have build very large businesses on that model alone.
