I want to bring more traffic to my hubs and I want to use the RSS capsule, however no matter how much I read on the subject I just cannot understand what to do with the capsule to ensure of not only traffic but backlinks as well. Everytime I read on how to use the capsule, I find myself getting confused once again. Can anyone explain to me how you use the RSS FEED capsule so that at last I can put it in my hubs. With thanks regards brownlickie
An RSS Feed from somewhere else and put into your hub isn't going to get you backlinks to your hub.
And it doesn't directly bring traffic.
All it does, and some may disagree, is make it appear that your page is updated regularly. That might indirectly get you extra traffic. And of course it will give your visitors something else to read that is on-topic (provided you've used the right keywords).
It could be of benefit to you if you're using an RSS feed from one of your own blogs, but other than that I wouldn't worry about them.
When you click on the RSS button of a sites feed you want to use;
- look at the top
- copy the url (should have addy with ?rss or similar)
- paste it into your RSS capsule
Hope that helps.

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.
