Feedburner is a really popular service used to track information about your RSS feeds.

This article explains how to elegently intergrate your existing CMS with feed burner using Apache and htaccess.

I use 302(temporary) redirects for my feeds in case I ever want to move away from the Feedburner service. A 302 temporary redirect will tell search engines to keep checking the original URL. It's valid to use a 301 instead if you never plan on moving away from feedburner.

Joomla Feedburner Redirect

Replace nickyeoman with your assigned name.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

# Redirect RSS readers to Feedburner
# Allow access to FeedBurner Bot
# For Joomla CMS
# v2.0
# Last Updated: June 3, 2011

#Catch All for non-category pages
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !^(FeedBurner|FeedValidator) [NC]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^format=feed&type=rss$
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ http://feeds2.feedburner.com/nickyeoman [R=302,L]

#For sub categories, where 'joomla' is the category name
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !^(FeedBurner|FeedValidator) [NC]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^format=feed&type=rss$
RewriteRule ^joomla$ http://feeds2.feedburner.com/nickyeoman/joomla [R=302,L]

Make sure you don't duplicate the RewriteEngine or RewriteBase lines. Don't blindly follow what I'm telling you, if you have a question free free to contact me.
