Feeds versus URL's

    I go to alot of bookmark sites and list my Hub Url's.  Instead of listing each one individually can I just do my RSS Feed?  Will I get the same results?  I am not sure how the bookmark sites will interpret the feed versus the direct URL.  Thank you for your help.

    I don't know what sites you are talking about, but I don't know of many (if any) sites that will allow an RSS feed.

    There are RSS websites that do allow feeds.. example: Feedplex, feeds4all, but some would only take URL's instead of feeds.  I submitted both just to be sure they were accepted

      feedagg.com, feedage.com, feedest.com, and feedbite.com are a few more.  I used these to get squidoo lenses indexed faster, but my hubs are getting indexed pretty fast.

      I'm not sure if it makes any difference as I still backlink individual hubs, but I've only been here a month.  Someone may have a better answer

        What are squidoo lenses?

          squidoo.com  Lenses are their hubs.

          It's a web 2.0 site similar to HubPages, but there are significant differences.  I like HubPages better.

          darkside has a good comparison hub:

              Just copy and paste the url of a hub into the google search box.  If it doesn't come back with your hub, it's not in the index yet.  I've had lenses take a week to show up without any sort of promotion, but my hubs have been showing up within 48hrs.

                  Wow - You are right.  My most recent hub page is already indexed and I created it less than 48 hours ago. Since you are a wealth of info - could I ask you another question? Do you ping all your url's or do you ping just your feeds?  I only ping my urls
