We’ve had a few inquiries about this from our clients, so I thought I’d write a simple tutorial to show what to do. It’s pretty straightforward and painless, but the way it’s worded on the Feedburner site makes it sound like you have to actually move something, which you don’t. It’s three simple steps. Off we go!
- Step One: Login to Feedburner
Go to the Feedburner website and enter your username (if you’re one of our clients and we set this up for you, most likely it’ll be your website name, all lowercase, all one word) and password (if you don’t know the password, click the “forgot your password” link to have it resent to you).
- Step Two: Login to Google
If you have not already moved your links, upon logging in you should see a yellow bar along the top with an announcement “Hey! We are moving FeedBurner accounts to Google. Learn more or Move your account now.” Click “Move your account now.”
You will likely be taken to a page that asks you confirm which Google account you’d like to use. You can opt to use one you’re already logged into, create a new one or sign in to an alternate Google account you wish to use. Pick your poison and click next.
- Step Three: Move the Feeds
Once you’ve logged into Google, you’ll be taken back to a Feedburner page titled “Move Feeds to Your Google Account”. It’ll confirm that you are signed into Feedburner using whatever your account is there and also confirm that when you click the “Move Feeds” button, it’ll move feeds associated with that account to your chosen Google account. If you agree, click “Move feeds”.
You should have been redirected to a “Success!” page that confirms what was done and how you access it. It gives you some other pertinent info, so be sure to read the whole thing. Then you just continue on to Feedburner via Google. You will no longer access your Feedburner information through the old link — be sure to login through feedburner.google.com or through your Google Accounts page in the future.
And there you have it! It’s Miller Time! :cheese:
