FeedBlitz Premium Services - Call for Betas

Wednesday, September 28, 2005

We're looking for a few good feeds! Help us wrap up testing on FeedBlitz's premium capabilities.

There will be two classes of premium publisher service to be tested:

1) High Performance - will poll feeds and deliver emails faster than daily.
2) Feed Branding - will customize email and subscription pages to match your look and feel.

Volunteers are sought in both categories. There are no guarantees that you'll be selected as we're looking for a range of feeds to test with before these services get rolled out. Testing will be with a parallel "beta" version of your feed(s); subscribers to production feeds will not be affected by the testing process.

For high performance services indicate whether you'd be interested in 12, 8, 4, or 1 hour polls, or the 15 minute "turbo" version.

For branding, please indicate your blogging platform and be prepared to share template / design information.

Interested? Then mail us at info@feedblitz.com with your information. You must (obviously) be a current FeedBlitz user to qualify.

Spam prevention...?


Bulk delete undeliverable?

Good question! FeedBlitz combats attempts to spam readers in several ways:

1) When a user signs up from a form they are required to acknowledge the submission (sent via email) before they start recieving posts. They can also implicitly acknowledge by logging in to their FeedBlitz account with their automatically assigned password - which is also sent by email as part of the confirmation process.

2) Until that time, feed publishers don't see users' email addresses.

3) Undeliverable addresses are tracked - spammy ones tend to be undeliverable for obvious reasons.

Bottom line: no end user can receive an email (and no publisher can see the address) until that user does something to confirm their registration. We're happy to work with readers and publishers to help combat this significant time-wasting nuisance.

That said, there are IP Addresses used by robots that are routinely filling up the subscriber DB. Code will be implemented shortly to prevent submissions from known spam addresses and clean up the subscriber base.

Undeliverable management by publishers is currently one address at a time; automated systems will take care of undeliverable / unresponsive addresses. A bulk undeliverable feature is planned as it's a popular request from bloggers with large subscriber bases.
