While working on my blog, I came across a webmaster tool called feedburner and Ibelieve me the tool can do wonders to your sitefeed.So firstly, I should explain you what is a Feedburner? The Feedburner is a website/web tool used by bloggers
to customize their blog layout and analyze traffic coming to their blog's RSS/Atom feed.
Recently it has been acquired by Google Inc. Great news for google fans! It provides the bloggers an easy to use interface to analyze and customize their blog feeds. The tool is very important for non technical bloggers. (Those who have very little or no knowledge of XML/Blogger) Burning your feeds with feedburner does not require you to register your blog feed with google index. The USP of the tool/product is its easy to use interface and no prior knowledge of XML/HTML.It can be used with different Blogger template. As a Blogger I would suggest you to use this tool because the tool can do wonders to your blog's feed(Thus blog) like drastic increase in Page Impressions and Adsense revenue

Here is the step by step procedure to burn your blog feed with Feedburner:

Step 2:You can Sign In to the Feedburner with your google account. If you don’t have a google account first Sign Up for a feedburner account.

Step 3:Type the blog address and you are ready to use the feedburner features.
Step 4:Now Select your RSS/Atom feed.Click on RSS feed address because RSS is good for dynamic content as shown below in picture.

Here I am describing some of the features I like:

Headline Animator: After activating this feature, there has been a drastic increase in page impressions(from 0 to 1000 per month) of my blog. Do you know how much page impressions I was getting earlier. It was virtually 0.Now you must be curios to know about what a headline animator is?
