I know that you already know what Feedburner is because most of you use the Feedburner’s services in distributing your feeds to subscribers. And I know also that you know about the acquisition of the Feedburner by Google. What I wonder is if you really know what’s the good thing of this acquisition.
Today, Feedburner reveals the advantage of being acquired by Google, and that is its becoming free even the PRO features:
One of the many benefits that FeedBurner publishers will enjoy now that FeedBurner is part of the Google family is a little something we like to call, “more for free!” Beginning today, two of FeedBurner’s previously for-pay services, TotalStats and MyBrand, will be free. Not in the sense of soaring high above the clouds or recently sprung from the hoosegow, but free like you’ll no longer gladly be billed on Tuesday for a burned feed today. We suspect this will be welcome news to the 450,000+ of you using many of our other free services, but understanding that your feed is your feed, you will need to activate these newly freed-up services in order to partake in their awesomeness.
I haven’t yet activated my feedburner account to PRO so I can’t show you how it works. However, John Chow made a clear review of the features. Visit John Chow’s post here. You can even partake the thoughts of Andy Beal and Siegler about this news.
