Feedburner Question

by Allen Graves 8 replies
I have a website that offers dozens of feeds.

Would it be worth my time to set up all of those feeds on feedburner? Are the perks truly worth it?

Thank you for your time,
Allen Graves

    I would. It's just so much easier to keep track of everything at one place, plus you can let them subscribe by eMail if you want too. I run almost all my feeds through Feedburner. The only feeds I don't necessarily run through Feedburner are the Comments RSS on blogs.

    Dan's content is irregularly read by handfuls of people. Join the elite few by reading his blog: dcrBlogs.com, following him on Twitter: dcrTweets.com or reading his fiction: dcrWrites.com but NOT by Clicking Here!

    Dan also writes content for hire, but you can't afford him anyway.

      I like the email option of Feedburner - the posts are nicely formatted and easier to read than in a reader...

      The only thing I don't like is that they don't necessarily give you a continuity of the previous feeds...

    I use Feedburner on my blogs mainly because of the stats. Admittedly, google analytics would give more stats about your site, so it can do the job and more. However, Feedburners advantage is the presentation of the stats. Clear, easy to understand, and all at a glance.

    Bottomline is that raw data is not statistics. And statistics is only as good as the information you can read from it. With this way, I have a better understanding of my blogs numbers.

      So will I be able to see all of the feeds in one report or do I have to look at them separately? They're all on the same domain.

      Every day I check the obituaries. If I don't see my name there, then I know it's going to be a good day!

        After you login, you'll be shown a listing of your websites. There's not much data on this page. My blogs are all on the same domain (*.blogspot.com) and from there you can go to the individual site's data page.

        The feed stats are on a separate menu for this page, with tabs on top for other services. In that way, the graphics are not cluttered.

        As one who's wary of information overload, I like the presentation of data because it gives me chance to take a quick look. Very convenient.

      honestly.. how could you not?

      If you know its not going to hurt?

      do it!

      links in your feed from any other domain has to be a bonus right? especially those that update content as your feed updates.

        So there is an SEO aspect to it as well, then?

        I am wondering why I hadn't been introduced to this until now...I've had these feeds for years!
