Are they working? Yes? No? They haven't been working for me for a while... am I missing some vital piece of info??
They are still not working. We were using Yahoo News as our provider for news RSS feeds.

It is often said that we need to include news capsules to keep our content fresh. But I see various Hubbers who are doing well, like ryankett, who don't include it. They simply do their keyword research, post content and let it be.I understand the value of the RSS capsule with your latest hubs...
