Then, all I had to do was add that tag to my master page and the page is now discoverable!
 

1: <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
2: <head id="Head1" runat="server">
3: <title>Silicon Valley Codecamp 2008</title>
4: <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml"
5: title="Code Camp Rss Feed"
6: href="http://www.siliconvalley-codecamp.com/Rss.aspx" />
7: </head>

Lines 4-6 are the header tag created by the autodiscovery tool listed above.
That’s it. Hope this helps. I did not include it in my because it seemed kind of a small point.
