In order to get statistics on my rss feed ( e.g. how many subscribers I have ) , I created a feedburner rss url for my site.
RSS Plugin: jekyll-feed
RSS URL https://majorgear.tech/feed.xml
Feedburner URL: http://feeds.feedburner.com/MajorGearsBlog
What I’d like to do is advertise the feedburner URL on my site so that it what subscribers will use, that way I’ll be able to collect and analyze statistics.
I pretty new to this, so I don’t know
- If it’s possible.
- How to do it.
Google hasn’t turned up any useful information on this topic , I thought I’d ask the Jekyll community.
Let me know if I need to add information to this post for it to be answered.
Thank you for reading.
In the jekyll-feed documentation it describes a _config.yml setting which I believe will do what you want.
I made that change and I see that
- feed.xml no longer exists.
- minima theme still creates an rss link to the feed.xml file.
- there isn’t another xml file , except for sitemap.xml in the _site/ folder after a restart.
You might be on the right track. I’m working on the email newsletter for my site now( domain forwarding, mailchimp ) right now. I’ll return to the feedburner issue after that.
I need a feed.xml for Feedburner to read, but I want users to subscribe ( and RSS search engines like Feedly’s “add content” search ) to use the feedburner URL. At least, I think that is what needs to happen for me to get rss feed stats.
