How do I migrate from Feedburner to Feedio?

Migrating your subscribers from Feedburner to Feedio is a 3 part process which takes roughly ten minutes. If you get stuck at any point in this process then please contact Justin at justin@feedio.co. Also note that we will be happy to walk you through the process over Skype, email or on the phone.

Part 1 - Exporting your email subscribers from Feedburner (if you don't have any Feedburner email subscribers then skip to Part 2 below):
  1. Log into your Feedburner account.
  2. Click on the feed you want to Migrate to Feedio.
  3. Click on "See more about your subscribers".
  4. Click on "Feedburner Email Subscriptions".
  5. Click on "Manage Your Email Subscriber List".
  6. You should now see a list of your email subscribers. Above the list there will be a few lines of text. Above that you will see "Export: CSV". Click on CSV and save the file.
  7. Click on the deactivate button in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. We want to deactivate email subscriptions so your email subscribers don't get two emails for each new post you publish.
  8. Email the file to justin@feedio.co with a short message indicating that these are your Feedburner email subscribers. We will then manually import these subscribers to your account.
  9. Unless specifically requested, we do not send an opt in request to these email subscribers. The minute they have been imported, they will start to receive your new posts straight to their inbox.
  10. Importing of new subscribers usually takes a few hours but can take as long as 72 hours depending on the number of requests and the volume of tickets in support.
Part 2 - Redirecting your Feedburner feed to your Feedio feed.
  1. Log into your Feedburner account.
  2. Click on the feed you want to Migrate to Feedio.
  3. Click on "Edit Feed Details" which can be found towards the top of the page.
  4. Change the value in the "Original Feed" field to your Feedio feed. To find your Feedio feed, visit your Feedio profile (http://www.feedio.co/@USERNAME) and add /feed to the end of the URL. If your username is bob, then your feed would be at http://www.feedio.co/@bob/feed.
  5. Once you have changed the value to your Feedio feed, click on "Save Feed Details".
  6. Now click on "Delete Feed" which can be found towards the top of the page.
  7. IMPORTANT: Tick the box that reads, "With permanent redirect".
  8. Click "Delete Feed".
Part 3 - Link your site to your Feedio feed.
  1. Deactivate any Feedburner related plugins/extensions/apps you may have running on your blog.
  2. Change any links to your Feedburner feed on your site, to point to your Feedio profile page (http://www.feedio.co/@USERNAME).
  3. Change any links to your Feedburner feed in your email signature, social networks or anywhere else, to point to your Feedio profile page.
That's it, your done. If you need any assistance with this process or would like us to walk you through it then please contact us at support@feedio.co.
