FeedBurner Feeds Not Being Updated

Recently in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, we've seen a few reports of blog feeds that aren't updating promptly.

With FeedBurner, is it a good idea to diagnose any problems experienced.

After a brief feed diagnostic procedure, we do an HTTP trace of the feed.
Sending request:

GET /feeds/posts/default HTTP/1.1
Host: myblog.blogspot.com
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3

Receiving Header:

Content-Type:·text/html;·charset=UTF-8(CR)(LF)
X-Frame-Options:·ALLOWALL(CR)(LF)
Location:·http://feeds.feedburner.com/MyCustomFeed(CR)(LF)
OK, the feed is redirected to FeedBurner.

Given a problem involving FeedBurner, it is a good idea to use the FeedBurner "Troubleshootize" wizard.

All feed problems won't involve FeedBurner - and all FeedBurner problems won't affect only the blog subscription options - but a careful diagnostic procedure is still a good idea.

I wonder why feedburner will not change my email adress even though I was able to change it on all of my google analytics and stuff?

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
