BlogBeat Purchased by Feedburner

Posted By 17th of July 2006 Blogging Tools and Services 0 Comments

It’s been an interesting weekend culminating in the announcement this morning that BlogBeat, the feed-based stats service has been purchased by Feedburner.

I’m a big Feedburner fan so my initial instincts on this news are good. I think there’s a valuable market for stats by feed and I would add them to my collection of stat programs. From the press release, it sounds that the features of BlogBeat which have thus-far been a paid-for service will be integrated into Feedburner’s StandardStats – a free service. So for all of you who paid for BlogBeat are entitled to a refund.

  • Should be a great addition. Feedburner is hustling.

  • Feedburner is such a valuable resource for bloggers and it keeps getting better.

  • FB is, for me at least, indispensable! And their customer support is second to none!

    is that the good or bad news for bloggers?

  • Jeff Turner runs BlogBeat – I’ve spoken to him on numerous occasions and he seems like a great guy. He donated a 1-year subscription to BlogBeat for a writing contest I recently completed (of course it’ll be free now, but it was still nice of him when he donated it months ago!)

    He’s worked hard, build a good product (which I do use) and I think he’ll add great things to FeedBurner, which I’ve also enjoyed as a great service.

    There’s lots of stats-related software out there but I think someone can do a better job of things and take it to the next level. Jeff and FeedBurner might just do that.
