How to transfer your RSS feed from Blogspot to WordPress.

Don't forget to share

If you have previously subscribed to my RSS feeder (if you haven’t why not!) you might be wondering why you suddenly have 10 new blogs. Sorry!

As you may know, I recently changed from blogspot to my own domain. (Hosted by the wonderful people of Ooblay)  I was very nervous about doing this as I didn’t want to lose readers. Once I had the correct plugins etc, everything seemed pretty smooth (haha) and I thought that RSS was set up. However, friends told me that they had stop receiving notifications of blogs.

The transfer from Blogspot to WordPress was completed, it all looked fine, there was an RSS feed in place so I assumed (never assume) that it had transfered everything from my old Blogger address to my new but when I looked it was a new Feedburner account. Now I had two, maybe because the blogs now had different gmail accounts.

I logged into http://feeds.feedburner.com using the second Google mail account and deleted the new feedburner.

Next I logged into feedburner with the old Gmail account.

It read that it was still the blogspot account, with no views –  what I had to do was change the Original Feed to the new domain, as above, I tried lots of variations but this one worked,

/?feed=rss2

I left the Feed Address as is.

Previously when I’d tried various options it said that the url was not recognised but this one showed this message.

Shortly after, my friend tweeted

@tsunimee working again, thank you http://www.twitpic.com/4ja6kz xx

She now  had a lots of my new articles posted into her feeder.

If you are having these problems I hope that this help you to transfer your subscribers to a new account/ domain.

Simply – if you are using Feedburner  – click here

Log into your gmail account

Click – Edit Original feed details (top left)

Change URL to one that you are using, with /?feed=rss2 after it.

Thanks.

    OK so I had blogger and used the blogspot domain for a year or so (tawnasplan.blogspot.com)  4 months ago I bought my domain thru blogger (now jsut tawnasplan.com) I have just created my new blog on wordpress (paid version) and am ready to transfer my domain over to WP. so it will stay tawnasplan.com
    My original feed for this blog does shows the blogspot.com but my feed address says http://feeds.feedburner.com/TawnasPlan
    So if I am keeping the domains the same can I just use this feed? I went into my blogger dashboard and copied the html out of my feedburner email subscription as well and pasted it into my wp site. Will that be OK too?

    • It sounds okay, doesn’t it, all you can do is try it out, and see if its working – if not do the above. Sometimes it takes a bit of fiddling around 🙂
