Transfer Your FeedBurner Feed in 5 Easy Steps

If you wish to change your Gmail account (Google Account) and use services like FeedBurner which is linked to your Google Account, you are given the option to transfer ownership of your FeedBurner feeds to another Google/Gmail account. This is extremely helpful because it keeps you from having to publish another feed under the new account. The how-to below will walk you through the steps necessary to transfer ownership of your FeedBurner Account to another email address in 5 easy steps.

If you have any comments or questions please post them below.

Note: The feed transfer from FeedBurner only works in the following two scenarios;

A. You are transferring a FeedBurner feed from one FeedBurner Account to another FeedBurner Account

B. You are transferring a Google FeedBurner feed from one Google FeedBurner Account to another Google FeedBurner Account

As of this article’s post date you could not mix a Google FeedBurner Feed with a FeedBurner feed. If you are still using the original FeedBurner account (Pre-Google) you can always link it to you Google Account and then you’ll be able to make the transfer.
