    Is anyone else having problems with the RSS feeds?

    Every time I try to put one on my hub it shows the feed when I test it but when I finish my edit it says that no feed was entered. I know the feed is correct since I copied it from one of my other hubs. Not sure what the problem is.

    RSS feeds have been disabled for new hubs due to the current changes which are deemed necessary to improve Hubpages' ranking since the new Google changes last month.

    I believe:
    1] Old rss feeds still work
    2] New rss feeds won't work
    3] If you join a hubmob rss feeds will work for hubmobs.

    I understand that the reason behind this is that many people were using the rss feeds in a way that could have harmed Hubpages' positions in the SERPS.  While some people carefully targetted their use of RSS feeds and feeds were relevant, many others simply chucked in an rss feed for good measure.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks Earner, I didn't know about them disabling the rss feeds. I use them to reference my other hubs. I guess I will have to go about it with links although then I will have to update them by hand. Appreciate the info.
