I went though the "upgrade" process to move my account from FeedBurner
to Google and all is not well :-( is redirecting to but the CNAME given to me
for MyBrand ( is not
working so anyone using that (i.e. 95% of my subscribers) are getting
a 404!

It's 48 hours now since I made the DNS change and nslookup tells me
that I'm getting the correct DNS response but that does not exist.


(Using self-hosted WordPress)

I'm having the same problem. The DNS change has definitely
propagated, but there is nothing
at the custom feed url (404). Also using self-hosted WordPress.

FYI, I just had the brilliant idea to try deactivating and
reactivating the MyBrand service, and now the feed is back on its
custom URL as it should be.

I was just about to leave a post saying the same thing. A bit of
Googling suggests that this is a common issue (indeed it has been
listed in the known workarounds and common issues blog post since 4
December... perhaps Google/FeebBurner could update the MyBrand
migration instructions (or better still fix the problem)...

...I know this is a free service but FeedBurner has always been
great. Google are certainly not (no response is worse than a "umm...
we're looking into it" response.

Glad to get my feed back. Very unhappy with Google.
