    When I log into WordPress, I see this error on the Dashboard, under Incoming Links:

    RSS Error: A feed could not be found at http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch_feeds?scoring=d&ie=utf-8&num=10&output=rss&partner=wordpress&q=link:http://afsphotography.ca/. A feed with an invalid mime type may fall victim to this error, or SimplePie was unable to auto-discover it.. Use force_feed() if you are certain this URL is a real feed.

    My site is http://afsphotography.ca but it has an "Under Construction" page up right now so I don't know if this helps.

    I can access the page http://afsphotography.ca/feed/ and an XML document appears in text format, however it is not recognized as a feed by Feedburner.

    Your incoming links feed is invalid - possibly because of the content being used by one of the site linking to you. This is a known issue but, because Google's feed quality is beyond WordPress' control, there's only a limited amount that can be done about it. forece_feed() should be enabled by default in a later version of WordPress and the error message that you're seeing will be changed to something a little... friendlier but, at the end of the day, an invalid feed is an invalid feed.

    Don't worry about it.

    But doesn't that mean I can't use my RSS feed? Can people still subscribe to it?

    The feed esmi talks about is incoming. Your feed, to which people can subscribe is outgoing. One has nothing to do with the other.

    Ok, well then I have a different problem I guess. I am trying to set up Feedburner with my RSS using this feed: http://afsphotography.ca/feed/ and it says it is invalid. Any ideas on how I can get it to work?

    There is no way to check it while you have the under construction bit up.

    If you found Incoming Links error on your wordpress dashboard as follow:

    RSS Error: A feed could not be found at http://blogsearch.google.com/blogsearch_feeds?hl=en&q=link:media-islam.or.id&scoring=d&ie=utf-8&num=10&output=rss. A feed with an invalid mime type may fall victim to this error, or SimplePie was unable to auto-discover it.. Use force_feed() if you are certain this URL is a real feed.

    The Solution is simple:

    Click “Configure” on the right top of your link:

    Enter the RSS feed URL here:

    https://www.google.com/search?ie=utf-8&q=link:http://media-islam.or.id/&tbm=blg&tbs=sbd:1&output=rss

    Change media-islam.or.id with your domain name.
    Works for me!
