For students and new users who need a better feed format for their WordPress blog should definitely look at FeedBurner from Google. FeedBurner is a Google’s feed management service for RSS feeds. There have been rumors over the years that it’s pretty much dead in the eye’s of Google.
I will not dispute that, since there hasn’t been any update to the service from Google in a long time.
The case folks are making is to switch to other feed management services like Aweber and Mail Chimp. I have tried these services, and I’m going to stay with FeedBurner as for long as I can. The problem I have with these services is they’re not cheap and their free service, if there are any, are very restrictive.
