Setting Up a FeedBurner Account for Your Blog RSS

Feed burner is a RSS system and I think it’s not an account, it’s a very important thing in your blog and it will play major parts in your blog’s success. But before I get to that, let’s find out what is RSS?

What is RSS? 

RSS means Really Simple Syndication. This is a simple way to read blogs/ websites fast and effectively. RSS feeds are copy of the whole blog content but in the RSS page, there would be no extra things that you have in your blog like ads, widgets, links and other things. Your blog’s RSS page is a simple and clean page to give your readers the ease to read articles.

Your readers can subscribe to your RSS feeds and read the blog without even visiting your blog. This is a special service to the readers and this way you could transform your visitors into daily readers.

Why Feedburner? 

Feed burner is the most used RSS feed service. Google owns feed burner which makes it more reliable. Feed burner is fast, simple, have lots of features and its free. 

Create a feed burner account and make your blog feed. Just go to feedburner.com and you will get a form to fill out your blog address. Fill up your blog address and click ‘next.’ Fill out the required information and you are ready with your blog feed. Your feed burner feed address for your blog would be feeds.feedburner.com/your-name.

Now all you have to do is to set your blog’s default feed to feed burner. To do this, go to your blogger dashboard and click ‘settings.’ Click ‘site feed‘ tab and fill up the feed address to ‘Post Feed Redirect URL.’ Click ‘Save settings.’ Now all of your readers will go to your feed burner feed when ever they need to read your blog’s feed.

Every day you can log in to your feed burner dashboard and can see how many people have read your blog content through feed burner, you can choose orange feed icons and email feed options too. The more you interact with the system, the more ways you can learn to use feedburner. If you had any questions related to this topic, you can ask me by comments.
