Adding Feedburner RSS Feeds to Your WordPress Website

Adding Feedburner RSS Feeds to Your WordPress Website

October 8, 2019 0 By Bernardo Ryan


Hi! It’s Stacey here from StaceyMyers.com. Today we’re going to learn how to put a Feedburner
RSS feed onto our WordPress site. The first thing we’re going to do is go to
Feedburner and Feedburner has integrated with Google so you can use your Gmail account to
sign into that. It takes you straight to the page where you’re
going to add in your feed. So we put our website in here. I’m not using my website as I already have
a feed for it. So we’re using goyagirls.com. You can, if you’re a podcaster, tick this. If you’re not, you just leave it and then
if you’d like to go back later you can tick that and then make any changes to your feed
that are necessary. Just click next. OK, and then you can choose whether you want
it to be the feed, which is the blog feed or whether you’d like it to be the feed from
the comments. I’m going to have the feed come from the blog
post, not the comments. This just tells me my feed title is Goya Girls
and the feed address now is feeds.feedburner.com/goyagirls. Just click next. OK. Basically the feedburner feed is live, so
you can just click next again. And this just tells you that the stats that
it will talk about for you, how many people have subscribed, what feeds the readers are
people are using, whether that’s like Yahoo or Blog Lines or Google Reader. You can also work out how many click-throughs
you have back to your website. You can choose any of these yourself. And that’s it. Your feed is all up and running. Then the next thing you’re going to do is
have a look where you want to place it. And for today, of course we’re doing the WordPress
self hosted website. It gives you a comprehensive breakdown of
what it is that you can do to put that on your website. But I’m going to take you through that. So the first thing we need to do is get our
feed. So it’s this feedburner.com/goyagirls. If we go back to our website, so he were our
in Goya girls, we’re going to add the feedburner plug in to our site. We go plug ins and we’re going to add a new
plugin. It’s Feedburner that we’re going to search
for and search plugins. Here, it’s the first one that comes up. So you want to install that now? Yes, we do want to install it. Activate your plug in. And then, if you come down into settings,
you’ll see down the bottom it says Feedburner. If you open that up, then you need to come
back and get your Feedburner feed. So remember it’s goyagirls.com/feed. Actually, we’re going to use this one and
then at the end you’re just going to type thegoyagirls and then press save. So now, this Feedburner has been set up for
your site. Now as I’m still building this site, I don’t
have any blog posts on here, so I’m just going to take you back to my site. And then I have here the icon for my RSS feed. So if you click on the RSS feed, it takes
you, will take people to this page. Now my ‘Subscribe with Google’ comes up by
itself because I have set that as my favorite reader, but people can subscribe to all of
these other various RSS feed readers that are out there. So people would then say if they want Google. Then you can just clicked add to google reader
and so that the RSS feed for my blog has now been added to that reader for people and so
then they can just go in at their own leisure and read any of the blog posts that we have
there. So, that’s how you set up an RSS feed for
your website. Inside Feedburner, if you don’t have the icon
on your website, if you want to go to publicize, you can get a graphic from in here that says
subscribe in a reader. And if you scroll down it will give you the
code down here to use, which you can copy and paste and put into your website. So if we were going to put that onto my website,
we go into the dashboard of your WordPress site, into the widgets area and then we’re
going to just use a text widget so you take the text widget over, wherever it is that
you want that to appear on your website and just paste the code in there. Make sure you save it. Then you’ll see here that it links. Now people can click on that and it takes
them back to exactly the same place as a would have with the icon that I have on my page. If you have any questions how to do this,
please just put them on my Facebook page or in the comments section of my website and
I will answer any questions that you have.
