    You could use a firefox plugin - http://www.dapper.net/dapperfox/ - to get the rss feeds and stick them in http://pipes.yahoo.com to combine them into one.

    There were a number of sites that did/still do rss merge, but i'm not sure how reliable they are. I think badrss did it, but i haven't used it for awhile. Pipes is pretty reliable overall.

    Actually you might be able to use just pipes, but i haven't been screwing around there lately so i can't say for sure.

    It's not quite cut and paste, but it's pretty easy, works well, and is reliable.

    I just go to
    Code:
    www.hostmyrss.com
    You need to register for an account once, but after that just copy paste a list of urls then it creates a feed.
    I then ping the feed, and submit it to aggregators using RSSBot.

    If the page is in valid rss format than the easiest way to go is with yahoo pipes as George suggested.But if you cant get the rss for your profile page than you might want to try FeedYes.com if I remember correctly you simply copy and paste the urls you want to be created in a rss feed and they will generate it for you.

    OK, hostmyrss.com and html2rss.com look promising.

    I've found plenty of sites that take a page with an RSS feed already, THEN combine it with other RSS feeds. I want to take lists of static html profile pages and get them into RSS form. Ultimately to submit them to RSS feed aggregators so I can get 'em indexed.

    Such as:

    The site I mention hostmyrss does what you want. Here is an example of an rss feed I created using my rss links. I then pinged it, and using RSSBot(search for it here), I submitted it to aggregators.

    Code:
    http://hostmyrss.com/feed/desserts_recipes_-_free_dessert_recipes

    MAD, where are you seeing that description? I'm seeing
    <description>Free and Delicous Desserts Recipes for all Dessert lovers worldwide!</description>

    TANAY, what are you using for a ping tool? And who does your profile links for you?
    Can you mash an rss feed with unrelated urls, or should they be in the same niche for max effect?

    I don't do much profile backlinking actually, was just trying it out for the first time last week. I used pingdevice.com to paste all the urls and ping, and then I used rssbot's inbuilt ping function to ping the rssfeed.

    Don't know about the second one, but I guess if they are on topic it's slightly better, because that way you can optimise the title of the rss feed you make for that niche keyword. But if you have a lot of links, and its not possible, it shouldn't really matter, as the main aim is to get the feeds crawled so that the links in the feed get indexed, so just paste as many as you can in an rss feed(I think the max is 100 urls)
