Simplified Subscriber Sign up - Part I

Monday, October 17, 2005

The HTML form for subscriber signups is fine (it's the grey icon with the angle brackets on your syndications ), and helps generate readers (you have put it on your main and archive pages, right?). But there are places where a form is no good - email signatures, for example.

So how do you publicize your feed and get readers to sign up when they're not actually on your blog?

I'm so glad you asked! With a URL that looks like this, that's how:

http://www.feedblitz.com/feedblitz.exe?Sub=<your feed ID>

For the FeedBlitz blog, the URL is:


Using this approach, users are taken to a signup dialog for your feed hosted at FeedBlitz, identifying your blog as the syndicated content. FeedBlitz's behavior is the same for new subscribers regardless of whether they sign up on your site or at feedblitz.com.

But wait - What's your FeedID? It's the FEEDID value in the HTML form generated by our friendly little grey HTML generating icon

So log in, check your feed's HTML (or your blog template, whatever), update your sigs, and happy FeedBlitzing!
