Create RSS feed?

    I have noticed some Hubs have an RSS feed link to other Hubs by the same author. Is there info anywhere on how to link Hubs this way? I have several that would benefit from this and would like to give it a shot.
    Thanks so much

    This is the url for your 'latest hubs' page:

    http://hubpages.com/author/RedElf/latest

    RSS feed url for the same would be:

    http://hubpages.com/author/RedElf/latest?rss

    ('latest' can be replaced by 'hot' or 'best' if and when needed)

    You can link to related hubs by using a tag

    http://hubpages.com/author/Name/tag/hot?rss

    where Name is your profile name and "tag" is the tag name you want to link to. 

    You can replace "hot" with
    "latest" or "best"

    Thanks so much both of you! That is just the info I need. Is it also possible to use the name of a group of hubs for an RSS feed or only the tags "latest, hot, best"?
    Thanks in advance

    The easiest way to link to a group of hubs is to tag them all with the same tag and then use the link above with that tag.

    Thanks for asking this question, redelf... I was a bit confused, too.

    For others who've already tried this, has adding these feeds helped much with traffic?

    Thanks again, all!
    ...but this will only work if the hubs actually appear on the hot, latest, best pages. Either that or I am missing something (something simple, probably, LOL).

    I have come up with the workaround, though, using what Hub Pages has already so thoughtfully provided. I assign each of the articles to the same, specially named group which then displays in the capsule at the bottom of the Hub just above the comments.

    Simple - makes the RSS feed redundant for this use, as well.
