I had thought RSS feed capsules were meant to display our latest hubs. Now I am finding that links can only be sited if they directly relate to the subject of the hub.
What is the purpose of the RSS feed capsule and it's appropriate use?
I often will use an RSS feed if I want to have like a google news feed associated to my page cause it warrants having some relevant current news. Search the topic in google news, scroll to the bottom, click rss and grab the url and use that for this purpose.
If you had another blog or wanted to link in articles from a specific website you can enter the rss feed url here to have a group of recent stories from whatever source you are selecting.
Since all feeds and links have to be relevant to the hub, you'll need to create an RSS feed that picks up only hubs you wrote on a particular topic.

For people who never use RSS feeds for any reason, I reckon it would be worth giving them the option of disabling the feature.RSS feeds make it too easy for content to be stolen.

I have made some changes in some of my hubs and am wondering if I should resubmit these url's or if they will automatically be "crawled" and I do not need to resubmit. Any help will be appreciated and I hope this isn't a really dumb question.
