How to move from Feedburner.com to Google Feedproxy

A locked bookGoogle now offers to publish your feeds directly through feedburner.google.com instead of using feedburner.com. There are couple of gains:

  • You will use your single Google account to log in to your feeds instead of having a separate one for Feedburner.com
  • You will be able to use Adsense for Feeds
  • You will have better email subscription capabilities

If you want to move you need to log into your Adsense account (or create one if you dont have it), click Adsense for Feeds under Manage Ads and select "Move FeedBurner feeds to your Google Account", then follow the instructions.

Your feed name will change to http://feedproxy.google.com/feedname so be sure to update it in your site settings orr Feedsmith plugin. Don't worry, your old feedburner.com feed will still work and automatically redirect to Google.com.

From now on you will login to feedburner.google.com to manage your feeds. The interface seems to remain unchanged apart from few small changes.

While you are at it, be sure to subscribe to Feedmedic feed - it is on the main screen and allows you to get information about possible problems with your feeds.

    Thanks for info, but I don't know if this is good news. Those who don't have an Adsense account are now forced to do one if they still want to use Feedburber ?

    I recently updated my RSS-Feed - moved it to Google+Feedburner (didn't use Feedburner before). Everything worked fine, but the feed isn't up-to-date, I am missing the latest two posts in my RSS-Reader. Any idea what could cause the problem? Thanks!

    I guess they will, but if you want to use adsense for feeds now you have no choice.

    I don't see why anyone should have to do anything.

    Google are the ones who should be pulling out all the stops to keep the transition as seamless as possible...
