    Just wanted to share this.  The RSS feed url validator is not always accurate.  It said mine was no good, but I had no trouble submitting it.  After submittal, the sites printed out content, etc., so it was fine.  The validator actually say if might be broken in their spiel.

        I am using the rss url I found on hub pages where a man explained it.  I think it's for all of the hubs, no particular one.  They all print out after I submit it.  The url is:  hptt://  Of course, yours would be what name is in your blog url instead of the marsei.  I don't know how to do a specific hub, but if you search in hub pages, you'll find were a man explains it.  That's where I got this one.  Hope this helps.   It has increased my traffic.

          Your message said you are using

          Was that a typo?
          Are you using this address?

          I don't think that is the correct format.

          There is more info here about RSS feeds, including the address format.
 … c-rss-feed

          And info about the RSS capsule here:

            You may be right.  The first article is not longer there, said author unpublished it.  I'll play around with the second one tonite.   I found the
            address I used on hub pages, but I can't find it now.  Thanks for caring enough to reply!

    I got frustrated and called a computer savvy friend.  He told me to right click on get Marsei's widget and then click properties.  That gives me this and says it is the url for the feed:


    I think I had an extra slash in before becausse the validator does verify it now.  Says I need to add an atom, which is beyond me.  It just said it's more effective but not neceesary.  Thanks for your help earlier.
