Launched a decade ago, when Facebook was in its infancy and Twitter was merely an idea, Feedburner quickly became the go-to-tool for RSS feeds. Google soon lent its support, by picking up the software in 2007 for a cool $100 million, and for a long time it reigned supreme as the world’s number one RSS service. But, all is not rosy for Feedburner…
…and it’s not organic traffic! It’s easy to watch organic traffic climb consistently after a hefty investment in Search Engine Optimisation and automatically assume success.
