    Pretty much a simple question, is it possible to view the amount of people that have seen your RSS feed, or is there a plugin or addon that would cater for this ?

    A thank you in advance.

    Use feedburner, it shows the number of people subscribed to your feed. You can embed a badge that shows this number.

    thanks for the quick reply, if I were to use feedburner would it replace the current feed that is on my site ?

    First off, the Q&A's are awesome. :D

    You should do a redirect.

    Add this to your .htaccess:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    
    # Feedburner
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/?(feed.*) [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !^.*(FeedBurner|FeedValidator) [NC]
    RewriteRule ^feed/?.*$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/yourfeed [L,NC,R=302]
    </IfModule>

    Remember to change http://feeds.feedburner.com/yourfeed to your feed address.

    Lol thanks Joseph, it is amazing the questions people ask on the Internet and some of their replies.

    I have added the code to my .htaccess file in the root directory, however it does not seem to redirect the link.

    That's weird. It's exactly what I use for mine. Did you put it before the wordpress rules?

    Thanks Joseph, actually it is placed on the last line, as everything is read from top to bottom in the .htaccess file. Are you using WordPress 3.0.1 ?

    if you use feedburner wp plugin then don't change your feed URL. if you set the plugin properly then your feed automatically redirect to feedburner URL. Don't need to edit the .htaccess file and also follow @elba00

    I am using 3.0.1.

    I don't really know that much about .htaccess but I put all my additional rules at the beginning and never had a problem.

    Thanks chinmoy29 and Joseph

    I have installed the plugin, configured it properly to point to my Feedburner account, but it still does not redirect.

    This is weird. It is still showing the WordPress feed.

    Any ideas ?

    Ok I have edited the theme to cater for the feedburner, should that work fine now ?
