Don’t Use FeedBurner and you will not have these Issues



WhiningfeedBloogers and podcasters are finding that FeedBurner is taking it’s sweet time updating people’s feeds after they post and ping the service. This is nothing new this is a issue that has been around since the beginning.

So when Marshall Kirkpatrick starts making noise that he is getting beat on release of stories because his feed is not updating, my reply is tough. You all knew the risk in allowing a third party service to control your RSS when your blogging application is capable of making one all on its own..

So just sit back and wait till FeedBurner gets around to indexing your feed and don’t be surprised if it takes awhile.

Marshall does give some tips to help speeding up the process that FeedBurner uses to update your feed. Because I control and serve up my own RSS feed it’s available here the second I hit publish .
