Hubpages is doing away with the RSS capsules do you think it's a bad idea?
I certainly do - my best performing hubs are the ones that have the RSS feeds on them that go to my blogs and websites. I think this may be the last straw for me with HP and all their changes with vague reasons as to why. Do spammers abuse RSS feeds? certainly - but what about those of us who do not? Very aggravated by this.
christin I think you make an excellent point. I haven't used RSS because I don't think I get it. hP should promote and explain it rather than remove it. if it works for you it can work for others, including me. I am now following you. I hope you don't leave. Your hubs are great.
I think HubPages maybe on a mission to shut themselves down. I was unhappy with the Google + option being taken away but RSS feed is standard for blogs.
I suppose RSS was one way of getting traffic to your hub so yeah it's sad to see RSS go.
I did use the RSS capsule and found it to be a good way to pull traffic on other hubs under the same group. now I am in a fix as to how to link same topic hubs together in related hubs.
as i am new on this hub but i recently know that the RSS was the great source for getting more traffic but it feels very bad to hear that news that RSS is go:(
I used the RSS capsule to link to on topic blog feeds, and other on topic hubs too. This is practically the same thing that happened with the news capsule they did away with some time ago. HP is becoming too restrictive.
I wasn't happy to hear that RSS feeds were going to disappear, especially as I had just learned to use them and now I can't even do that.

How do you feel about losing the Hubpages RSS capsule?For me it means editing almost 150 hubs, or losing all the links to my relevant articles. It also means I now have to keep reviewing articles to update links, rather...

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

Right, so I've ultimately decided that I am going to start working towards adapting my 722 Hubpages to the requirements / suggestions set out in the Ren's blog post. The Hubpages team are going to have a better idea as...
