What is FeedBurner?
FeedBurner is a news feed management provider launched
in 2004. FeedBurner provides custom RSS feeds and
management tools to bloggers, podcasters, and other
web-based content publishers.
Some more info:
Services provided to publishers include traffic
analysis and an optional advertising system. Though it
initially was not clear whether advertising would be
well-suited to the RSS format, authors now choose to
include advertising in two-thirds of FeedBurner's
feeds. Published feeds are modified in several ways,
including automatic links to Digg and del.icio.us, and
"splicing" information from multiple feeds. FeedBurner
is a typical Web 2.0 service, providing web service
application programming interfaces (APIs) to allow
other software to interact with it. As of today,
FeedBurner hosts over a million feeds for 743,793
publishers, including 182,973 podcast and videocast
feeds.
On June 3, 2007 FeedBurner was acquired by Google
Inc., for a rumored price of $100 million. One month
later, two of their popular PRO services (MyBrand and
TotalStats) were made free to everyone.
