I received an email from Google AdSense a couple of days back. Since I was serving AdSense in my FeedBurner feed, they wanting to inform me that they will discontinue serving AdSense ads in FeedBurner feeds from December 3, 2012. Here is what appeared in my inbox :
It came as a big blow to those who were earning potential revenue from their feeds. It further fuelled the rumours that Google will soon withdraw completely from FeedBurner. Though for now there has been no confirmation or anything from Google.
Since many bloggers use FeedBurner since it allows them to monetize their feeds, I guess FeedBurner services will come to a fall. There are some other feed services too which can be used as a good alternative for FeedBurner :
Some Alternatives for FeedBurner
- Feedblitz :- Well they themselves claim to be a FeedBurner alternative on their homepage.
- RapidFeeds :- It looks pretty simple to setup and easy to use. Can be a good alternative for sure.
- Feedcat :- A good service to create feeds and measure stats.
For me I am not changing my Feed Service as am pretty much comfortable with FeedBurner only. As soon as they continue to provide services I will keep going with them only. Let’s see what happens.
