Migrating This Feed From FeedBurner to Google

Migrating FeedBurnerWe are being forced to migrate our feeds off FeedBurner's legacy servers and on to the new Google servers. Yes, Google bought FeedBurner a while back and now they are requiring all FeedBurner users to move from feedburner.com to feedburner.google.com by the end of this month.

So this morning, we hit the migrate button. It is still migrating. Most of you should be fine, because we used the MyBrand service, which meant our feed URLs were at http://feeds.seroundtable.com/[feedname-goes-here] but some of you may be subscribed to the old URL, which would be at http://feeds.feedburner.com/something.

If so, the new URL will remain to be at but is hidden behind a CNAME of http://feeds2.feedburner.com/ or likely at http://feeds2.feedburner.com/SearchEngineRoundtable1

Bottom line, if you don't get feed updates from us tomorrow or the next day, then there is an issue with your feed subscription and you will need to resubscribe. You can subscribe over at this page fairly quickly.

To be honest, I am terrified of making this switch. We track threads and we track the FeedBurner Group and all I see are complaints about feeds getting lost or subscribers numbers diving. So I am a bit nervous about this migration, to say the least.

Oh, if you have never subscribed to us via RSS, maybe it is a good time to do that now over here.

If anything goes wrong, please comment here or contact us or if you are a Twitter person, over at twitter.com/rustybrick.

Thanks for reading, as always!

Good luck. I was still subscribing to http://www.seroundtable.com/index.rdf. I'll watch both for a while and let you know if I see anything weird on the new one.
