Google’s acquired Feedburner back in June of 2007. Feedburner has since been integrated into the Google Adsense platform. Bloggers can now place adsense units into their RSS feeds. In order to take advantage of of this service I needed to migrate my three Feedburner feeds into the new Google adsense feeds system.
According to this Google/Feedburner FAQ, February 28, 2009 is the deadline to migrate feeds. After that users will no longer be able to access their Feedburner accounts.
The migration process is simple for regular Feedburner users.
I use the MyBrand service – see my earlier ‘Google Turned Feedburner into ‘Free’burner Without My Knowledge’ post. A few more steps are required to migrate MyBrand feeds.
General Migration Steps
You can initiate the migration process from inside of Google Adsense or Feedburner. I initiated the transfer from within Adsense.
Note: You’ll need to set up an adsense account before you initiate the migration.
