I have a rating community-site and I´m offering little iframe widgets with the average rating and some little other info.

Does it make sense (for visibility, SEO) to add link tags to the head like:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" href="rssfeed" />
<link rel="index" title="main-profile" href="main-profile">

To get a logical association of the widget to relating pages? How would you do this?

I don't think it will make any sense to add link tag like this as search engine will identify it without explicitly mentioning it through link tag.

But if you want to block crawlers, you may have to put rel=noindex tag!
