I have been playing around with Feedburner, Pheedo and my blog’s feeds and somewhere in the process, something got confused (or maybe I did, who knows). My old feed started showing rows and rows of the “email this * save to del.icio.us * add to del.icio.us…” etc. (See the image below)
My intention was to see how I could get Feedburner and Pheedo to peacefully co-exist (feeds coming to you, the end reader, from Feedburner but feed ads coming from Pheedo). Yes, that is right, ads on my feeds. I read that most people read blogs through feed readers (and not the actual site) so, adding ads to my feeds seemed to make more sense (or cents). [Help me, click on some ads!]
Don’t know if anyone has successfully done this (I have read on Pheedo that it can be done and am following the steps outlined to me and then clarified by me with support). Here are the steps:
- Sign up for Purple on Pheedo
- On Pheedo, put in my original feed URL (in this case https://www.hightechdad.com/feed/)
- On Feedburner, change my feed source from https://www.hightechdad.com/feed/ to http://www.pheedo.com/f/techdadblog/
I did all of this…and am not really sure what happened. So, now I am back with a NEW Feedburner feed URL and a NEW Pheedo feed URL. (All of my new feeds now say “hightechdad” instead of “techdadblog”.) We will see if this works. I think something may have gotten corrupted with my original settings. Hopefully everything will work correctly now. More later once I figure this all out. But I guess that if you see ads in my feeds and no repeating “add to del.icio.us” links, then things are looking good.
Update: this post has not been picked up this post…must not have pinged Pheedo when posting.
