Upcoming changes to FeedBurner

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 | 9:00 AM

FeedBurner has been a part of Google for almost 14 years, and we're making several upcoming changes to support the product's next chapter. If you use FeedBurner to manage your RSS feeds, here’s what you can expect to change and what you can do now to ensure you’re prepared. 


Starting in July, we are transitioning FeedBurner onto a more stable, modern infrastructure. This will keep the product up and running for all users, but it also means that we will be turning down most non-core feed management features, including email subscriptions, at that time. For those who use FeedBurner to manage email subscriptions, we recommend downloading your email subscribers so that you can migrate to a new email subscription service. This data will also still be available for download after July. 

For many users, no action is required. All existing feeds will continue to serve uninterrupted, and you can continue to create new accounts and burn new feeds. Core feed management functionality will continue to be supported, such as the ability to change the URL, source feed, title, and podcast metadata of your feed. Basic analytics on feed requests and the ability to create enclosure tags for MP3 files will also continue to be supported. 

We're glad that these changes allow us to keep FeedBurner up and running, but we also realize that changes like these can mean extra work to find alternate solutions, which is why we wanted to inform you early. Check out the FeedBurner Help Center to learn more about the changes and next steps.

Old FeedBurner Account System

Tuesday, January 7, 2020 | 4:25 PM

As of Jan 1, 2020, the pre-Google FeedBurner account system has shut down.

Prior to FeedBurner joining Google in 2007, our service had its own user login system. In December 2019, we sent emails to users who were still using the old account system with a final notice to move feeds to a Google account by the end of the year. We have now turned off the pre-Google login system and users who did not transfer their feeds to a Google account before Jan 1, 2020 will no longer be able to access their feed settings.

You can still create new feeds with a Google account on the FeedBurner dashboard.

Daily stats between May 5th and May 9th were missing, but are now available

Thursday, May 12, 2016 | 3:33 AM

FeedBurner had some trouble generating feed and item statistics for feed requests between May 5th and May 9th. These statistics have been recalculated on May 11th and are now available in the FeedBurner control panel. No further problems are expected.
