Evening / morning / afternoon all.
In a recent self-pitying thread I posted, Maddie Ruud helpfully suggested putting on a news capsule as Google likes to have new content to crawl every day.
So my question is do you put new content on yourself, or add news capsules, or RSS feeds, to keep Google happy?
Just wondering how many people do it.
I do either news capsules if I'm lazy, but I do prefer to use RSS feed capsules that link to my own content, so that people go, but they still stay on my pages for awhile and when I add new content in the tags related to each hubpage it updates automatically!
Oh I really am going to have to learn about that RSS stuff then. Arse. OK. That's my new project for the week.
The thing to remember is that it should be an RSS feed of relevant stuff. So, if I write a belly dance Hub I might put an RSS feed of my other belly dancing Hubs, but I wouldn't put an RSS feed of all my other Hubs.

You may have noticed there is no longer a tags section on the Create a Hub page, and that the option to add the RSS Capsule has been removed from the HubTool. On our blog, we have announced that we are retiring tags and the RSS Capsule due to decreased utility and use. You can find all the details...

I just received an announcement that HubPages Is Getting Rid of RSS Capsules to get rid of seldom used capsules. I found this surprising since I use the RSS Capsule on every Hub that I publish, so readers can see my latest work when reading any of my Hubs and also to keep Hubs from being...

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...

I am wondering about a new strategy i am trying. What I am doing is putting an RSS Feed into my best performing (Viewed) hubs with my latest (not indexed by Google) yet hubs. IS this a good way to have them "crawled"? Or is it better to add links instead so each hub stands alone?

I thought I read the new rules about word count and Amazon links, etc. and I put in the time to fix every single hub that was on the list that HP emailed me. Apparently some hubs didn't make the list and now I'm getting about 2 emails a day telling me that a hub of mine was unpublished for...
