FeedBurner, Why Should I?

Written by Shaibanii Pressed on September 15th, 2008 - 10:26 am Filled Under: The Internet

Feedburner is a RSS Feed service that allows you to track subscribers, and more awesome features. After I registered’s feed, I thought to myself, I MUST share this awesome-ness :-D

Although you’ve got your blog’s RSS feed, that isn’t enough. You can use it if you want, but you’re missing out on some great features! With Feeburner you can track your subscribers, these are the people that keep coming back for more! :-D Feedburner makes it easier for your readers to subscibe to your feed via other emails, eg. My Yahoo!. Also, you can notify other services or people that you’ve posted something new (Pings). Another thing, you can change your feed without losing subscribers.

There are many other features and add-ons that if you use, you won’t regret it. So ‘How do I do it?‘. Simple, head over to and register, its pretty much self-explanatory. I don’t know if this will work with Cutenews or whatever, but it definitely works with WordPress, Blogger, MySpace, and more services. :-)
