All’s well that ends well

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi

For millions of online publishers who are using the services of the web-based feed distributor FeedBurner, for them the February month had been tough and full of anxiety. They had to transfer their website’s / blog’s feed from FeedBurner to Google.

Importance of FeedBurner could be gauged from the fact that the blog is using the services of FeedBurner to distribute content feeds to its subscribers. The email alert they are receiving in their inbox it is through it. The management of the subscribers is being done using FeedBurner.

With so much in stake, remaining away from Feedburner that is for a whole month was like living with out oxygen. Not only one go blank with the subscriber list but at the same time statistics that the blog generates.

Sleepless night had been spent by millions of FeedBurner’s users; they endured hard at this crisis time! The change of platform brings with it litany of other changes. One had to master the transition and at the same time get acquainted with the new Google environment.

The transition for the users took place since Google acquired it in June 1, 2007 believing that the “feed-based content and advertising is a developing space” where Feedburner can add value for users, advertisers and publishers.

Though the last date of the transition was February 28, 2009, still “Google Adsense’ users can do it. If you don’t have a Google Adsense user account, create one. After the transition is made, DON’T FORGET to log in the “Google Feedburner” with “Google adsense username”.

Presently when millions of web site or blogs are running on cobwebs of online services, the costs that one has to be pay is by spending sleepless nights that we all have spent when any such changes do take place in the internet landscape. Now when the transition has been done successfully - feeds have been resumed and statistics have been fetched – one could say “All’s well that ends well”.
