Dashboard Incoming Links RSS Error (5 posts)

    Today, my Dashboard -Incoming Links has a new message that I don't understand and am concerned about. Is it spamming my site or my RSS feed? It says: RSS Error: A feed could not be found at http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch_feeds?scoring=d&ie=utf-8&num=10&output=rss&partner=wordpress&q=link:http://www.housekaboodle.com/. A feed with an invalid mime type may fall victim to this error, or SimplePie was unable to auto-discover it.. Use force_feed() if you are certain this URL is a real feed.
    Thanks so much for your help.

    This happens when your site is unable to retrieve the blog search feed from Google. It'll go away on its own, usually.

    Hi Samuel (Otto)- Thanks so much for replying to Fast! Good to know it will go away and may be bothersome... Yesterday I switched from MAXCDN to the Bluehost Cloudflare - could this be causing it?

    Probably not, no. That code is your server instance of WordPress directly retrieving the RSS feed from Google. It doesn't go through CDN's and such.

    A change in your hosting configuration could cause it, but it's difficult to say for certain if that is the case.

    Hi again Otto, thanks for clarifying. I think if it does not disappear in a few days I will call my host company.
