How to Backup your FeedBurner Email Subscribers List Safely?



Backup FeedBurner

FeedBurner is a widely-used email subscription service, and unless you're on a premium service such as Aweber, chances are that you are using FeedBurner as well. For some, FeedBurner might be everything they need. But for more advanced bloggers out there, some premium services seem to offer a lot more features. And the fact that FeedBurner ran into problems a couple or so months ago doesn't go very well in its favor either. Whatever the case though, it is always a good idea to back things up. Whether you want to move your subscribers to another service, or you just want to make a backup, you will need to download your FeedBurner subscriber list. Here, we'll tell you how to backup your FeedBurner Email Subscribers list.

FeedBurner isn't so renowned with reason. It has many features to offer, such as subscription management, email branding, customizable delivery and communication preferences, and a lot more. You can view and sort your subscriber list, activate/deactivate and delete individual emails, and receive emails when people unsubscribe. Besides, it has the export option, so you can export your list to excel or .csv format.

Downloading your FeedBurner email subscribers

To start off, log into your FeedBurner account. FeedBurner previously had problems displaying subscriber counts, but it seems to be all right for most people now. Just click on the blog name for which you want to backup your subscriber list.

You will then be directed to a dashboard. Click on the Publicize tab in your dashboard.

Under the publicize tab, you will see an option for Email Subscriptions in the left sidebar. Once you click it, you will see some further options. Now click on Subscription Management.

Now, you can see the number of your email subscribers. When you first log into FeedBurner, what you see is the total number of your subscribers for both email and RSS combined. But what you need is just your email subscribers' list, and not RSS subscribers' list. On the Subscription Management page, if you scroll down all the way to the bottom, you will see the number of your Total Subscribers, which only counts your email subscribers.

If you click on the View Subscriber Details option (shown in the picture above), you will options to export the list.

Just click on Export: CSV, and you're done! You will be prompted to save a file, which contains all your email subscribers. You can do whatever with this file; either store it on your computer, or upload it to a cloud storage, your call.

In the meantime, if you have questions, feel free to ask. Good luck :)

  16. Hi Qasim and Mohammed,
    millions of thanks to you guys for this blog and the very well explained tips and tricks.your articles have been very helpful to me. my food blog is an year old now and has reached half a million hits and the credit goes to you guys. i have implemented most of the seos from this site and has truly worked out for me. once again Thanks a tons. i have a problem now. hope that will be resolved with your help. i had moved from blogger blog to a google hosted custom domain 6 months ago. 3 months ago, by mistake i had created a new blog feed (instead of editing the already existing one). so my domain has 2 feeds now and my 500+ subscribers are distributed in these 2 feeds.so my blog has 2 feeds (both for blogposts and none for comments). is this going to be bad for seos? is google going to penalize for having 2 feeds. after the google updates in 2013 feb, i have lost keyword rankings for the major traffic driving keywords, though my PR for the site remains unaffected. also i have recently changed the design of the existing template (only the design and not the template). please help me. would appreciate if you could let me know where i went wrong. Thanks a lot.
