Since Google’s acquisition of Feedburner in June 2007, things have been running as normal on their original servers and software, but Google has bigger plans. All Feedburner accounts need to transfer their feeds to the Google system by February 28th, 2009 in order to maintain seamless feed traffic.
I just moved all 9 of my feeds this morning to try out the system, and I can attest that it is quick and painless. Here are the steps:
- Log into your account at http://www.feedburner.com
- Click the link at the top to migrate your account to Google
- It then confirms if you are already signed in as a Google account-holder (I was logged into my e-mail, so I was) and asks if you’d like to use that account, another account, or create a new Google account to manage your feeds.
- After that step, it confirms which feeds will be transferred, and you’re off to the races.
All in all, it took about 3 minutes to move them all. The new Feedburner login page is http://feedburner.google.com.
