Does anyone know where I can find the RSS feed for my hubs? I know that it did exist before but there have been a lot of changes to HubPages after that and I just can't seem to locate it. Thanks in advance.
HP exterminated it for SEO reasons awhile back.
However, we can still do http://hubpages.com/help/ads for our hubs (bottom of page).
I see, anyway thanks for letting me know. Too bad it doesn't exist any longer. There are some valid places to use feeds for traffic.
It's been a really long time. Who knows? Maybe your thread will result in HP re-examining the issue to see if the original reasons for discontinuance are still valid. As for whether the reasons are still valid or not, I would have no idea.
True, and it also means non-members can't follow us. However the reason was that people were using the feed to steal articles.
RSS feed facilitates plagiarism and it also robs you of visits to your Hubs. If someone can read your Hub on RSS, they don't need to visit your Hub. For years some people boasted that they had huge numbers of RSS followers on blogs and websites as compared to email subscribers or visitors. You don't see them boasting about that anymore. They wised up, and so did HP.
Is that the case even with RSS feeds which offer only the summary of a post?
I could never understand anyone offering RSS feeds which gave the full post, for exactly the reason you mention. I even came across a couple of sites which offered use your feed to republish your whole blog on their site to "gain more exposure", which seemed like the maddest idea ever (yet people were signing up!).
I think summaries are fine. However, I'm glad HP removed the RSS option because scammers were definitely using that to be notified of new content by specific Hubbers. (Now, of course, they can still get email notifications if they follow a specific Hubber or Topic, but it has reduced the automated plagiarism that went on before, I think.)

I'm trying to understand RSS feeds. I think the capsule is a reader that aggreates feeds from other websites, but I'm not sure

For people who never use RSS feeds for any reason, I reckon it would be worth giving them the option of disabling the feature.RSS feeds make it too easy for content to be stolen.
