redirect my WordPress RSS Feeds to Feedburner Feeds using htaccess file









Feedburner is a great service from Google to track your blog RSS Subscribers, and Feedburner can give you a full control on your RSS Feeds.
You can get many reports about your RSS Subscribers, such as; what RSS Readers your blog visitors use? How many subscribers do you have? You can also add to your WordPress blog an RSS subscription services that will help you to increase your RSS Subscribers.

All the reasons above are enough to encourage you to redirect your original WordPress RSS Feeds to Feedburner RSS Feeds.


Another important reason to encourage you to redirect your WordPress Feeds to Feedburner Feeds is Google Adsense! Google Adsense publishers can add Google Adsense ads to their Feedburner Feeds page, if you don’t redirect your WordPress Feeds to Feedburner, then you can’t make enough money using Feedburner Feeds page right? So if you already an Adsense Publisher, then you should redirect your WordPress RSS Feeds to your Feedburner RSS Feeds.

It’s easy and simple! We will just paste a code inside the .htaccess file that exists in your home directory.
Login to your website Cpanel account or any control panel, go to “File Manager” and then go to your home directory root (Public_html) and look for your .htaccess file inside your home directory root.


#Feedburner Redirect
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
rewritecond %{http_host} ^zuraidin.com/feed/ [NC]
rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/zuraidin/$1 [L,R=301]



Before you copy this code, replace “zuraidin.com” to your blog URL, if your domain is with www, then just add “www” to your website URL, and don’t type “http” in your website URL.

Also change “zuraidin” to your Feedburner id.

Now copy the code and paste it in your .htaccess file and finally save the changes.

That’s it! You’ve finished! If you have any questions feel free to ask me.

  2. While this doesn't have an attractive UI, it's very useful (but then again, most great tools looks simple).
