I always understood that you could have 2 links to the same domain OR one RSS feed. I never saw anything which said the number of items in the RSS feed must be limited.
I also thought "affiliate links" and links to other websites were two different things.
Jason has now posted that the RSS feed can only contain 2 items.
I'd like to know whether this is correct, because I have RSS feeds to other domains on several Hubs, and I am only seeing warnings for some of them.
For instance, I have a warning on this Hub:
but not on this one:
Is it because there are Amazon ads on the domain I've linked to in the first Hub, but not on the second one? Do they count as "affiliate links"?
sorry to start a new thread, but Jason closed the other one before I could ask for clarification.
You're entitled to 2 affiliate links in any form (whether they're in your text, your Links Capsule, or in an RSS feed) total per Hub, as the email explained to you.
If the links are not affiliate links, then you can have a non-affiliate RSS and 1 non-affiliate link to the same domain in the body of the same Hub.
An RSS feed composed of affiliate links can only have 2 items.

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

Whether I agree with HP's new policies or not, I respect the site's right to set their own rules. However, I think one of the reasons Hubbers are getting upset isthey're getting warnings based on rules they don't know existExamples:1. I have "overly promotional" warnings on several...
