When I began putting feeds on my hubs, there were 3 categories to choose from: latest, best and hot. My first 24 hubs on HP were Astrology. But as I wrote more, I explored many topics. So sometimes, if I had 3 or more "latest" or "best" hubs on the feed, they did include different topics. I tried to conform and changed RSS feeds that were too varied in topic. Last week many of my feeds were pulled, and my hubs had large gaps in them. I spent hours on all 99, making sure the subject on the feed was similar to that on the hub. But yesterday and today random RSS feeds were just pulled. What's going on? I didn't choose those 3 catagories, so if my 3 (or more) "best" or "hot" hubs include some varied topics, it's not my fault. Should I just take them all off? I think it's hurting my score, it hasn't been this low since I was working my way up, I was down to a 90 the other day and usually my score runs about a 95 or 96. I can't recheck them all every day. Would it be best to take them all off? Please advise. It's getting really frustrating.
It is far better to use a tag specific feed than the hot/best/latest. This will allow your rss feed to group similar topics that all have a communal tag.

Thanks for getting back so soon. I left out crucial info. When I tried to conform, I did use tagged feeds. I had astrology "moonsigns" on Sunsign hubs, and vice versa. Same for greekgod on some goddess hubs, greekgoddess on some god hus. It's still the same main topic. So why are random ones still being pulled? I'm getting so disgusted. I hate to take them off, because they draw attention to older hubs people may not see. Anyway, thanks for trying. I'll check a few random ones tomorrow and see what's what.

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.

I tried signing up for Blogrush to post it on my hub (which I hope is possible) and they ask for my feed URL. Hmmm. So I tried to find out what that is, but couldn't. I see a button for RSS feeds. How do I activate...
