How to Optimize Feedburner Email


Here in this post I’ll be showing you the top 5 ways to optimize feedburner emails in just 10 minutes. So that you can maximum out of it.

Summarize Emails or Not

This is one of the most important and debate question in blogging. The default setting in the feedburner email will mail the full blog post to your subscribers. Is this beneficial for bloggers? If you’ll ask me it’s not. Because by this way you’re not going to get traffic and engagements from your subscribers. They will get full post in email itself and so why to visit you. Just think why you worked to increase subscribers?

So just cut the full post to summary and mail. There is a setting in your feedburner account using which you can do this. I would suggest you to mail around 200 characters to your readers and for the remaining part let’s have them visit you.



Login to your feedburner account à Optimize Tab àSummary Burner.

Here select how many characters you want to send in email. This trick is definitely going to increase your traffic and engagement. Unfortunately there is no read more link option available here but by clicking on the post title readers can visit you.

Blog Title in Subject

If you’ll check my previous feedburner emails you will find the same title in every email “Tricks Road - A Path In Making Your Blog Successful”. Isn’t that confusing? If you too think the same, here is the solution. You can change the title of email to blog post title. If you’re not getting idea for blog post title try free blog title generator. This will help you a lot.

To change the default title of feedburner email, follow the below steps-

Here I have written TricksRoad just for branding. You can change it to your blog name. This step will give a professional look to the emails and also if your readers need in feature they can directly search.

Add your Logo

This is also one of the important parts which will make your feedburner email professional. It gives a positive impression to user and does not look like fake and also show a feel of brand. Just by inserting the url of logo you can show your company’s logo in the right of mail. Follow the below step to achieve this.
