Feedburner takes the RSS feed from sites like this one and distributes them to subscribers. You may be wondering, what is a feed?
A feed is an easy way to distribute content without requiring people to actually visit your site. A person can subscribe to a website’s feed and gain access to regular updates of a website. These updates are delivered automatically using either email, a new reader, or a web portal.
Feedburner is great because it enables the person to keep up to date with a website’s content. You can have the feed delivered right to your inbox. This way you will always be notified of important posts, events, contests, and news.
What is the difference between rss feed and feedburner? Is there any difference?
RSS: you would need to view the feed online or download like a newspaper (see more at “What is RSS? blog entry)
FEEDBURNER: feed is emailed straight to your mail inbox
