    Just wanted to share this.  The RSS feed url validator is not always accurate.  It said mine was no good, but I had no trouble submitting it.  After submittal, the sites printed out content, etc., so it was fine.  The validator actually say if might be broken in their spiel.

      @Marsei
      Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
      Can you provide the the RSS URL you are using and the Hub in which you are referencing it?

        I am using the rss url I found on hub pages where a man explained it.  I think it's for all of the hubs, no particular one.  They all print out after I submit it.  The url is:  hptt://marsei.hubpages.com/hubs/latest/?rss.  Of course, yours would be what name is in your blog url instead of the marsei.  I don't know how to do a specific hub, but if you search in hub pages, you'll find were a man explains it.  That's where I got this one.  Hope this helps.   It has increased my traffic.

          I say it's helped my traffic.  It did last night.  My stats haven't been updated since this a.m.!

          Your message said you are using
          hptt://marsei.hubpages.com/hubs/latest/?rss

          Was that a typo?
          Are you using this address?
          http://marsei.hubpages.com/hubs/latest/?rss

          I don't think that is the correct format.

          There is more info here about RSS feeds, including the address format.

            Matthew,
            You may be right.  The first article is not longer there, said author unpublished it.  I'll play around with the second one tonite.   I found the
            address I used on hub pages, but I can't find it now.  Thanks for caring enough to reply!

    I got frustrated and called a computer savvy friend.  He told me to right click on get Marsei's widget and then click properties.  That gives me this and says it is the url for the feed:

    htpp://marsei.hubpages.com/hubs/latest?rss

    I think I had an extra slash in before becausse the validator does verify it now.  Says I need to add an atom, which is beyond me.  It just said it's more effective but not neceesary.  Thanks for your help earlier.
