Get a list of people who have requested (via Feedburner) to have your blog-posts by email

This article shows how to get a list of people who have subscribed to receive articles in a Feedburner feed in their email. It’s written for Blogger users, but it applies to anyone using Feedburner.

First, I explained how to set up a feed with Feedburner, and that for your feed to be useful, you need to give people a way to subscribe. Options for subscribing to your feed include using RSS feed reader software (eg Google Reader) or, if you provide the option, subscription via email. And Google has now provided the Email tracking gadget which makes it even easier for you to add the email subscription option.

Some bloggers prefer that people subscribe by email, because this gives them access to their list of email addresses of their subscribers – making it possible for them send messages to subscribers separately from the blog post.

Getting a list of email subscribers is easy, but you need to have software that can open a Comma Separated Values ​​(CSV) file to view the list – Microsoft Excel is a tool that many people use, but there are very much. others.

I haven’t researched if there are any Feedburner Terms and Conditions about what you can or can’t do with the subscriber list. I hope there are some – it’s up to you to make sure everything you do with the extracted list meets these rules.

How to view your email subscriber list

Enter to Feedburner, using the Google account that owns the feed.

Click on the name of the feed you’re interested: this opens the Feed Stats Dashboard in the Analyze tab.

Click on Subscribe from the menu on the left

Scroll down to the Email Subscription Services area

Click on Email subscriptions to Feedburner

Click on Manage Your Email Subscriber List

Click on Export – CSV

U the download starts: depending on how your machine is set up, you will probably be asked what you want to do with the file (mine opens it in Excel)
