These three confuse me - I believe they are substantially different.
Correct me if I am wrong, Edwardo (sorry I think I spelled your name wrong - very tired) taught me how to create an RSS Feed - I can do an URL submit and a Ping?
Which is better? Or just different?
Does MSN, Bing and Google all have "ping"s?
Sorry for the simplistic question....trying to learn.
Submitting a URL is the same as telling the post office (a specific search engine or directory) that you just bought a house and you are giving them the address to it.
A ping is like letting relatives and friends (search engines and directories at large) know that you've moved, or redecorated the living room or that someone else has moved in with you.
An RSS feed is like posting things out on Facebook. You're saying "Hey! Here's a list of the stuff I've done recently. Come take a look." Folks that you're friends with will see it, and it may also draw in new friends.

It would be a nice addition to have the RSS capsule come pre-loaded with our default feed address as an option. I always forget mine and have to navigate to my profile and back to the hub in progress to get the correct...
