WordPress: .htaccess tip – Redirect feeds to FeedBurner Instantly

This method is so simple, I dont know why folks bother with any other way.
You want to sign up for a Feedburner account and have folks sign up for that one rather than your default WordPress RSS
(This makes it easier for them and better to keep track of)

1- Open your root directory  “.htaccess” file

2- Add this snippet of code to the top of the text file: (yes before the part that says “# BEGIN WordPress

 # temp redirect wordpress content feeds to feedburner
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !FeedBurner [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !FeedValidator [NC]
RewriteRule ^feed/?([_0-9a-z-]+)?/?$ http://feeds.feedburner.com/SimpleInboundMarketing [R=302,NC,L]

3- Make sure you change the feed burner address http://feeds.feedburner.com/SimpleInboundMarketing to your own

4– Save this and overwrite your previous “.htaccess” file with this one

5– Now when you or someone chooses your RSS feed they will be redirected to the Feedburner version
