The W3C provides a free RSS/ATOM feed validator, which can be found here: 

https://validator.w3.org/feed/. If you encounter any problems adding one of your feeds to our platform, try running it through this validator first to make sure it validates. This can be a great tool to pinpoint any errors that may be associated with your feed.
