This problem arose before and was corrected as a bug.
Is this a new bug or do the hubs need to be corrected if the RSS contains more than 2 links with the same first part of the URL => source URL/ article title.
It would seem that this effectively means the RSS capsule generates violations and cannot be used.
@janderson99 We replied to your email.
You can post the follow up details here or reply to the email message and then we can research further to see if there is a bug.
If a hubber writes an article about nutrition and wants to provide the reader with some latest research news using and RSS to Science daily the hub witl have a set of links in the RSS capsule e.g.
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/scienc … 083852.htm
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/scienc … 083852.htm
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/scienc … 110614.htm
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com/~r/scienc … 171933.htm
If there are more than two this tiggers and Overly promotional red skull which lists the links.
This has happened 3-4 times in the last 6 months and its been identified as a bug. I spend 4 hours yesterday reducing all my RSS on 150 pages down to 2 links because HP threatened to cancel my account. Most of these articles have been only HP for 3-6 months with no problem. It is annoying to have this same error crop up again and again. I made the changes because I am quite frankly over this stuff. Why do the same errors with the RSS capsule occur over and over again?? It is clearly not against the stated TOS and has been OK for more than 6 months.
Having only 2 links reduces my ranking and authority and denies my readers the opportunity to read the latest news about the topic. All because of an error!
I was confused as I looked at your Hubs and didn't see any warning.
Now that I see the URLs being used, I have some insight.
The warnings you saw were related to the domain being temporarily mislabeled.
We fixed the labeling issue, so hopefully you shouldn't see the warnings anymore.
Sorry for any confusion this temporary issue caused.
As I said this has happened 3-4 times in the last 6 months with old hubs.
Each time there is a threat of cancellation. Each time I was forced to make a desperate response, wasting lots of time. The only way to stop the impact of the recurring errors is to only have two links - which hampers the effectiveness of the RSS - but this is what I am forced to do.
Sounds like you are looking for a staff answer.... but, just an FYI
RSS feeds created so many problems, (read violation unpublishing), a while back, that many hubbers - including myself just stopped using them - even deleting them from existing hubs.
HP got so stringent on "related" links that most RSS feeds would pull a hub down.
Anyway... for what it's worth
This is so annoying.
This happened about 2 months ago. One again you have labeled half of my hubs as having violations when they have been on the site for at least 6 months with no problems.
When is this attack on the willing going to cease
=>now a dumb error with the RSS capsule so that a huge number are labeled as having violations.
How about a 'do no evil policy'
Enough is enough Already.

I'm trying to understand RSS feeds. I think the capsule is a reader that aggreates feeds from other websites, but I'm not sure

Hi I recently received a warning, which I did not understand, but which, it turned out, actually referred to links to my own hubs ~ unrelated ones. I eventually sorted it out.I wondered why RSS feeds to our latest / best / hottest hubs were supplied, if we couldn't use them.Then I was told that we...

Since I don't have an affiliate to Amazon or adsense why does the violation list that I have too many of these? What is the difference between the two?I thought that you could have one amazon link per 50 words. Some of my pages have over 1,000 words and only 4 amazon links, and it's...

Hey Staff,Please get your moderation team on the same page. I am beginning to get PISSED OFF at their incompetence.Last time I checked, RSS Feeds are allowed to be ON hubs and must be relevant to the HUB.I am getting sick and tired of moderators telling me to DELETE specific links inside RSS Feeds,...

I have a Hub that makes the point that leaving babies to cry isn't harmless. The site, "Dr Sears" has lots of different articles that essentially point out the same thing. One the one hand, I was kind of thinking that more than one link pointed to the same expert, who said...

I have not quite got the hang of RSS feeds and have no idea of the advantage of 'feeding' my hubs.Do feeds count as links? (I'm silly but willing to learn here)My hub feeds, are all my hubs linked in the feed. Does the feed generate a link for all my hubs or just the latest? Humor me here and...
