Hi. I am planning to combine two of my Feedburner feeds into one. I
think I am pretty clear about the process, but I read something from
the old forum that the 30 days redirection doesn't work well for email
subscribers...

http://forums.feedburner.com/viewtopic.php?t=20765

Can anyone verify that or if I am misunderstanding something? Around
70% of my feed readers are email subscribers, so it's a bit
concerning.

Thanks.

Hi Jee,

At the moment, email subscribers have to be transferred by the
FeedBurner Team manually. I have forwarded your case to the Team and I
do hope that the operation can be done by users in the future.

By the way, what are the URLs of your feeds?

Thanks for the help Franklin.

I am combining these feeds (haven't started the process yet)...

http://feeds.feedburner.com/YummyCelebritiesAndEntertainmentNews (to
be deleted)
http://feeds.feedburner.com/YeinJeeAsianPop (to be kept)

There are 400+ Feedblitz email subscribers and 60+ Feedburner email
subscribers to be transfered... sounds troublesome if it has to be
done manually.

Oh! Unfortunately, FeedBlitz subscribers cannot be transferred...

ic... if that's the case, I would redirect the Feedblitz directly to
the new feed... some of them might receive duplicate emails if they
are subscribing to both feeds, but I guess I can handle that.

So, should I start the 30-days redirection process now or to wait for
instructions from the Feedburner team?

Thanks.

Do you mean that you can change the feed address in FeedBlitz so that
existing subscribers can continue to receive updates? If so, you may
start the 30-redirect process now.

Yes I can change the feed address in Feedblitz... as said the only
downside is that some of them might be getting duplicate emails.

Actually after reading the 30-redirect process again... I got a bit
confused. Does the redirect means that all the subscribers would be
redirected permanently or do they have to resubscribe again to the new
feed within 30 days?

Thanks.

If the subscribers' feed reader supports HTTP 301 redirect, then they
will be redirected automatically, Otherwise, they will be notified
that they need to change the feed address.

Ok. I have started the 30-redirection.

Should I contact the Feedburner team to transfer the emails or they
will be notified through here?

Thanks.

The FeedBurner Team cannot transfer subscribers to FeedBlitz. I think
you need to export the list in the Subscription Management section of
Email Subscriptions settings and import the list in FeedBlitz.

Yes, I understand that. What I meant was to transfer the Feedburner
email subscribers from feed A to feed B. I will take care of the
Feedblitz subscribers myself.

Should I contact the Feedburner team to transfer the Feedburner email
subscribers or they will be notified through here?

Thanks.

Just so you know, these administrative transfers take a little while
to complete; please ping me back in a day or so if I haven't gotten
back to you with a completion status.

Thank you Matt,
All is working. Is it possible to translate the old Stats to the new
feed?

The two feed are actually one feed. I followed the "Transfer Feed"
procedure for feed which are under FAN. But I would like not to lose
my Stats.

Kindest regards
Enrico

Unfortunately there is no way to transfer feed stats from one feed to
another; the only way to preserve the old stats is to Export them.

We can transfer your email subscribers from one feed to another. Your
feed subscribers are best transferred to another feed by changing the
FROM feed's Original Feed to the new feed's FeedBurner address, and
then deleting the FROM feed using the 30-day redirection option.

If you complete the 30-day delete and successfully forward traffic
from the old feed to the new one, we can then transfer the email
subscribers to the new TO feed as well.

Hi Matt

Thanks for your answer.
Don't worry about stats. It's the minor problem.
I have done what you had said:
1- change the FROM feed's Original Feed to the new feed's FeedBurner
address
2- delete the FROM feed using the 30-day redirection option

I have also published a post in my blog explaining the situation to my
subscribers!

What is the next step?

Thanks!!!

We'll transfer your email subscribers to /Ley20, and that will be
that. I'll post a follow-up once it's complete.
