Feedburner Changes Ahead

Posted By Darren Rowse 22nd of April 2005 Blogging Tools and Services 6

In the comments of my previous post on the FeedBurner service Duncan, a representative of Feedburner, left the following comment which has a few interesting revelations in it for Feedburner users about upcoming features.

Hi Darren, You can always tell if your FeedBurner feed is in synch and up to date just by clicking on the xml button on your site. We see your feed as having been in synch and up to date with no interruptions in our logs, and I thus suspect it was a reader that may have fallen out of synch on polling. Nonetheless, YOU should not have to guess at this stuff! One of the items on our to do list is to notify you via your personal FeedBurner feed when we see polling discrepancies or when your source feed is invalid (thus preventing us from making some transformations), etc. That way, we can be much more proactive about helping you stay up to speed on how your feed is “performing”. Always feel free to shoot us a feedback note if you have any questions. Oh, and coming in two weeks or less will be stats on how any commerce in your feed is performing. this stats table will be embedded in your feed’s daily stats page.

  1. whoah, this is great news.

  2. Nice changes, but I can assure you that your feed was definately the only one delayed yesterday, and I find it unlikely that all your readers on their various feed readers would have experienced the same problem all at one and it was there fault and not feedsters. Blaming others (as feedster has done) is never good for business.

  3. Again, I had no idea that posts were written since the Guess The Blog Topic (http://www.problogger.net/guess-the-blog-topic/).

    Never received it in my Newsreader with no problems from other feeds.

    Hmmm…

  4. Well im not sure what was going on but I couldn’t read posts from your blog from my reader thru My yahoo or coming directly to your site. I had 85 posts backed up waiting for the time that I could get back in to read. Well on a fluke today I clicked on the link that I have in my blogroll and it took me right to your blog!!!! So I deleted the other feed out of my reader and added the one I was able to access today. Hopefully this was just a problem with my reader and won’t happen again.

  5. Safest bet is probably to use the original RSS feed above – even safer is to bookmark us or add us to your own blog and physically surf in each day :-)

  6. I posted a querry to find out if I could post a blog on http://www.robertbenjamin.com the other day. Since I posted the other day I have found out that my server does not have php or MySQL. so I will not be able to post a blog on my site unless I can find a way around this problem. I wish to thank you for the help that I did get on this topic and to post another querry. Is there a way around the php/SQL probem. I would like to keep the post on the site and not move it off site. But again I don’t want to post all the junk ads from every source under the sun.
    Thank you in adavance
    Herb
