You also probably know that I like to make things as easy as possible for my readers. As such, they can access all my content from a central spot: Feedburner.
How did I do it?
1) I merged all my RSS feeds into one with Dlvr.it. This great service automatically posts articles to Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Tumblr. It also tracks performance and provides relevant stats, such as audience, followers, clicks, and popular posts
2) Dlvr.it allowed me to create a central RSS feed whose link I added to Feedburner.
In this short tutorial, I will show you how to aggregate all your feeds in a few easy steps.
First, sign up for a Dlvr.it account. When you have confirmed your registration, log into your dashboard.
This will bring the Source Editor. Select “new” in the pop-up screen.
Click “Feed Update” to choose how often you want Dlvr.it to check your RSS feed and publish new content. Then, click “save source”.
To add more feeds, click “add” next to “Sources”.
You can also edit the central feed by mousing over its title and clicking the pencil icon.
Here is what you should see in your dashboard:
Some RSS feeds are harder to find than others. For example:
- YouTube: Use https://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/username/uploads
- Flickr: Click the feed icon next to “Subscribe to Cendrine Marrouat’s photostream” at the bottom of your photostream
- Pinterest: Use http://pinterest.com/username/feed.rss
- WordPress: Use http://example.com/feed. You can also read this article for more information.
Now, the last step is to add your Dlvr.it feed link to Feedburner. And then, you are set!
I hope this little tutorial helps!
Do you use Dlvr.it? If so what do you think?
