    When Submitting your RSS feed to directories which tag category is more recommended among (latest, best and hot) and probably why you recommend it.

    I use the "latest" tag, trying to ensure that google gets at least a peak at each of my hubs.  I do no back-linking, though, and that might make a difference.

      Thanks, but is that not limiting, what happens if you don't publish some new hubs, does it mean the older hubs what get featured, and if you are not grouping your hubs then latest is still fine as you will be producing many hubs when grouping your hubs it's quite certain that at some point you will write on something else and using latest might limit other older hubs being featured more frequently on the RSS directories. That my thought

        Your statement would be only relevant to someone who stopped publishing hubs. hmm

          Cagsil, at some point you will stop publishing hubs, and you want most of your hubs to featured RSS directories, that's why I find latest to be limiting.

            Why would someone stop writing?

            Besides, each hub should have it's own RSS feed, which is tied into HubPages' feed, either through the author label or a tag.

            Even older hubs would cycle through the feed, as long as the RSS feed is on the hub, because of freshness alone.

            Then again, I could be wrong and that wouldn't be a surprise in the least.

    I say it depends on how many times I can post to the directory...

    If I can post more than one feed, then I try to post all three feeds. lol

      It's the best but time consuming, given one option among the three, which one would you say to be effective and efficient.

        Regardless of which you choose, each are subjective to a different angle when viewed.

        Hot- only means the hubs that are presently getting the most traffic at the present point in time.

        Best- is based on which has the best hubscore at that point in time.

        Latest- is the most recently published.

        So, take your pick? hmm

          Well explained, thanks

            Maybe this can help.....

            You would not use "Hot" because those hubs are presently well traveled.

            You would not use "Best" because those hubs are the highest rated hubs, due the consistent traffic and ratings.

            You would use "Latest" due to the fact that they are recently published, not aged like others, and need fresh traffic outside of that of HubPages.

            Does that help?


            Edit: It depends on how YOU view your hubs.

    On a side note- the argument you just presenting in your previous statement about finding the latest?rss feed limiting, you will also find with best?rss and hot?rss feeds as well.

    If what I said is indeed inaccurate. Otherwise, your point is moot.

      CagSil best?rss and hot?rss feeds keeps on rotating as what is your hot or best hub to day might not be tomorrow and others would take up on the RSS feed, am also learning on this that's why I had posed the question which is coming out positive through the feedback
