How to set your feedburner feed as your default feed in blogger ?

I may be late in publishing this . But it might help some who didn't notice this in blogger's blog. Blogger has recently added this feature of making you feedburner feed or other feed as default feed.you can now specify a URL to which Blogger will redirect your feed's traffic. This means you'll no longer have some subscribers getting your Blogger-hosted feed while others get your FeedBurner feed, and your subscriber count should (as a result) be more accurate.

To enable this functionality, visit your blog's Settings | Site Feed page, and enter your feed's address in the "Post Feed Redirect URL" field just like I did in the figure and save your settings ..

Why should you redirect your feed to feedburner ?

By redirecting your feed, you can get a true picture of how many subscribers you have. Some of you might even see a few more subscribers magically appear, though results will most certainly vary. Why so? Sometimes, publishers inadvertently fragment their feed audience by offering more than one feed address on the blog itself or within their autodiscovery tags (the method by which feed readers automatically detect the address of your feed for syndication purposes). This results in some subscribers not being counted, and no one wants that in a world where everyone should count for something. By redirecting your feed, you can consolidate any straggler subscribers and greatly improve your ability to effectively measure your audience.Feedburner provides different chiclets which shows your feed audience .

So if you have not yet created your feed on feedburner , go to feedburner and make one today . And know your feed audience.
