I am having a new design for my wordpress site, and this may be a stupid question, but I was thinking putting a RSS Entry and RSS Comments feed at the very top, on the right hand side (below is a advertisement)

My question is, is this good, bad, or has no bearing on SEO? I will have a sitemap, which I will add in the bottom of the page.

Also have a navigation bar, with Home, News etc running above the first post. But will both RSS hurt, or do well with SEO? If not at the top, then I will add on the side bar.

This is a urgent question, so quick responses will be more than appreciated.
