Hi Hub mods,
Can someone clarify the rules on outbound links that are in RSS feeds?
I've just had a Hub taken down for automatic review because it had:
1. One link to one of my sites.
2. An RSS feed from the same site with 4 links on it.
I think the rules should be made a bit more flexible for RSS feeds as they're very useful and they don't affect AdSense CTR much. In fact a drop in CTR would be offset by the boost due to constantly changing content from the RSS feed. I am after all using the HubPages RSS feeds to provide valuable inbound links to this site!
I guess I could put 2 links in the RSS feed and drop the other link to the site, but then it wouldn't be much of a newsfeed.
Or could I drop the link and just have the RSS feed with 4 outbound links?
Had anyone else had the same problem?
That sounds like the best solutions. Once you have an RSS feed, with however many entries, you should not have hyperlinks to the same domain.
The FAQ is quite clear about this, http://hubpages.com/faq/#overly_promotional
Thanks all. It's fair enough I suppose. It's still annoying hubs get flagged for stuff a while after you publish them. Grrr.

I was just looking at Klout and it said that it didn't see anything Ihat I had written, and that for stuff to be recognized, it had to be on sites which had RSS feeds.Any input?

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.
