How To Replace Blogger Feed with Google FeedBurner

When creating a blog with Blogspot, there will be a default feed published from the blog.

For example, Simple Blogger Tips' original feed link is:

http://simple-blogger-tips.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default

And that's it.

However, with Google FeedBurner, you can manage your feed and your feed subscribers better.

If you already have a Google Account, just sign in and add your blog link to the text field provided.

feedburner submit

After that, identify your feed source.

Select the choice with "Atom".

After that, give your feed its title and feedburner.com address.

Submit and your FeedBurner feed is done.

Now you have to redirect your Blogger feed to your new FeedBurner feed. Return to Blogspot.

Dashboard > Settings > Site Feed

Make sure "Allow Blog Feeds" is Full.

Then enter the FeedBurner feed link to the "Post Feed Redirect URL" box.

Click "Save Settings" button and you're done. Now all your feeds will be redirect to FeedBurner.

For your convenience, FeedBurner has applied the following services to your new feed:
  • BrowserFriendly improves your feed's appearance in most web browsers and makes it easier to subscribe to
  • FeedBurner Stats tracks basic feed traffic statistics
More of FeedBurner's feed management, services and features will be mentioned later.

Enjoy Feed-Burning! =)
