WordPress RSS feeds to feedburner

Welcome back! You might have heard of RSS – it is one of the web feed formats that is usually used on Blogs or websites where content are updated regularly, i.e. social bookmarking sites. Feeds are a great way to boost your blog stats and make them reachable to enormous people. Today, let’s find out how to redirect WordPress default RSS feeds to FeedBurner without any plugin.

What is FeedBurner?

FeedBurner is a web feed management provider that was launched in 2004. FeedBurner was founded by Dick Costolo, Eric Lunt, Steve Olechowski, and Matt Shobe.  It provides custom RSS feeds and management tools to bloggerspodcasters, and other web-based content publishers. FeedBurner or any other service can be used to keep track of your feeds.

WordPress Default:

The default theme lets you create a responsive magazine website with a sleek, and modern design. You can feature your favourite homepage content in either a grid or on a slider and use the three widget areas to customize your website. You can also change your content’s layout with a full-width page template and a contributor page to show off your authors.

Redirect WordPress RSS Feeds to Feedburner Without Any Plugin:

When you have signed up with a feed service, your aim is to redirect the the user to a new feed address. It can be done using Feedburner Feedsmith WordPress plugin, but it is always not very effective.

A more efficient way to redirect your default WordPress feeds is by editing your .htaccess file. It is wise to take a back up of your .htaccess file before editing it.

Next, you must add the following line, and replace the feed address with yours.

# temp redirect wordpress content feeds to feedburner RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !FeedBurner [NC] RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !FeedValidator [NC] RewriteRule ^feed/?([_0-9a-z-]+)?/?$ http://feedproxy.google.com/DevelopersNation [R=302,NC,L]

This is a simple and the very best method to redirect your default feeds to Feedburner or Feedproxy account.
