Feedburner/Google Server Transition
In this episode, I share my updated thoughts of the Feeedburner/Google sever transfer. I mention the January 19th blog post where I personally suggested waiting to do the transfer.
I'm happy to announce that Google seems to have resolved most every issue that anyone had reported up to this point with the exception of those who are using Yahoo Pipes as their source rss feed. In the episode, I personally give a green light and say that making the transition seem to be a pretty seamless one at this point.
Feedburner MyBrand Users:
For those who are using the MyBrand feature of Feedburner. Google is reporting that “After transferring your account, you will be sent an email with instructions on how to change MyBrand. You can also get these instructions on the MyAccount page after the transfer.”
You will be required to change your DNS CNAME to the Google hosted domain service, the same service that handles custom domains for Google applications like Blogger and Google Apps for Your Domain. Please note that the CNAME will no longer be the same domain as the domain that serves feeds, but the service level and functionality will be identical.
