      I haven't paid much attention to RSS feeds because I haven't found an article that explains the whole idea well (until now). This is a great article and it sure makes a lot of things more clear to me. Also, this is the first time I came across the free RSS submission sites list. Now, I just have to figure out what my RSS feed address is...well, that requires reading this hub again :)
