Not so long ago, all reset the counter FeedBurner, problem was solved only after two days. This gave much cause for concern, Google is no longer active on the service and it is rumored that can generally be “frozen» FeedBurner and develop it further.
If you use this service to combine several dozen channels, it must be for you a hint of what is possible in the near future; you will need to use a backup plan.
What consequences will be for your site to WordPress?
Many WordPress plug-in use Feedburner API to publish statistics from Feedburner, interact with TV Feedburner, its services and analytical database. These plug-ins will no longer work and interact with your site into WordPress, while the service itself is still active.
Why should I use RSS-services?
Good question! This does not mean that without such a service you will not have newsfeeds. However, if you want to know who subscribed to your RSS feed, and from subscribers, then you should make sure you subscribe to the appropriate service that will provide similar information. Some of them are paid, but there are also free.
Despite the fact that FeedBurner has long been a guiding service for traffic on the blog, but it is not unique. WordPress Code contains an entire section devoted to the use FeedBurner, but unfortunately, it does not mention any alternatives. Perhaps too much time has passed since then, when I was studying the options of skipping services. I searched a bit this information for you and compiled a list of some of the best options for the delivery of news feeds to subscribers to your blog.
FeedStats is a plug-in for WordPress, which provides simple statistics about your RSS-channels and displays it on the panel. Here there are several options for settings:
- The number of days for which statistics are displayed.
- Minimum level of user access WordPress, which can view statistics.
- Time on Site / visits (usually used 1 hour / 3600 seconds, but this can be changed).
- Visitors right now (recommended time 5 minutes / 300 seconds).
- IP, which is not stored (e.g., either IP).
While his ability is not as wide as that of FeedBurner, this service can help those who need only basic information about your channel.
