RSS feed questions

    Hi all,

    I work for a classified-type site and am planning on having an RSS
    feed for each category. I understand the basics of RSS, but I can't
    decide how often to update each RSS feed.

    Each category will probably have several new listings every hour.
    What's generally the recommended update frequency for an RSS feed?
    Also, in each update, do you exclude content that was in previous
    feeds, or do you leave it up to the reader to sort out repeated
    content?

    My plan is to update the feed every hour and for the feed to have 24
    hours worth of content. Does that sound like a reasonable strategy?

    Thanks,

    Paul
