I'm not sure is this has been asked already but is it a violation or unfavorable to put up rss link on hubs?
You can do it, but you need to remember:
1. The content in it looks like "duplicate" to search engines.
2. You can have either two outgoing links to a site OR one RSS feed. Not both.
...and also, you can only link to related Hubs - so you'll have to set up the RSS feed using tags, not just "latest" or "best".
Here I am confused, again, lol. On many of my hubs I have the RSS feed up to display five of my related hubs. Is that too many to have in the RSS feed? Are these considered duplicate to search engines?
It's not the number of Hubs that's the problem, it's the text. The description is the same for each link in every Hub. If you've chosen the long description, that's a lot of text being repeated over and over.
I've used RSS feeds on many of my Hubs, too, but I always used the short description. I used to think that was enough to avoid problems but I am considering removing them, especially as the "Others are reading" section on the new layout already lists some of my related Hubs.
Thank you guys for throwing in thoughts regarding rss feed. Those are indeed helpful as Google these days has been very particular in small things. We need to get updated. Thanks again.

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

Why are we no longer allowed to share new hubs with those who follow us?Can anyone tell me why HP is now recommending that we do not share our new hubs with our followers? How do we get new hubs noticed if we don't share ... and why have followers if they do not know we have written anything new?...

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 Apparently some hubs didn't make the list and now I'm getting about 2 emails a day telling me that a hub of mine was unpublished for...
