I have yet to gain a clear understanding of RSS Feeds and how to best make use of them. I have read a HUB or two on the matter and for some reason it's still not clear. Can anyone walk me through it?
You could start here..
RSS capsules are taking a "listing" of something from another website and put it in your capsule.
The listing is often of all the blog posts of a blog, or a filter list of such posts (specific tag, for instance), or news filters, or such.
Think of it as a "live list of links". A Link capsule is static, but an RSS module can show a bunch of lists that changes depending on RSS input.
Understand the theory. So, first I identify an RSS Feed suitable in content to one of my Hubs and link it?
Digs, by adding a RSS feed from someone else's blog to your Hub, you're publicising that person's blog. What do you think is the benefit to you of doing that?
I can't see much point in it myself. It's true Google does like to see references included when you write a Hub, but a RSS feed only references one site so that's not particularly helpful.
Far better to add a Links capsule at the end of your Hub called "References" or "Further Reading", where you can list a few useful sites relevant to your content.
Of course, if it's your own blog, that's a different story!
This is something I don't understand myself. Interesting replys.
