I've always made sure that my RSS feeds are relevant to my hubs, but is there ever a time when they can hurt traffic flow? I'm still getting the hang of RSS. Thanks.
If you are linking to some of your sites and also have a RSS feed linking to Google news etc then the traffic to your sites might be reduced. Other than that I don't think having a RSS feed will hurt the traffic your getting to that hub.It might actually increase the traffic since with RSS you got a dynamic hub that is frequently updated which is always a good thing
There is a chance someone will click the Rss link and not an ad. Thats how it hurts profits. In the case they don't, there good because the page is always updated for the spiderbot. Rss allows other people to keep your page fresh with no work to you, so if you use one whoever puts it on works for you for free. Go figure.
Same goes for News Feeds.

I'm curious to hear if there are any hubbers, who saw a big drop in traffic after the most recent Google Panda and Penguin updates, have fixed their issues and are getting good traffic again yet?I think it would be good...
