Redirect WordPress RSS Feeds to Feedburner without any Plugin

Once you have signed up with a feed service, your aim is to redirect the user to a new feed address. It can  be done by using Feedburner Feedsmith WordPress plugin, however, it is always not very effective.

The best way to redirect your default WordPress feeds is by editing your .htaccess file. Do not forget to take a back up of your .htaccess file before editing it.

Add the following line, and replace the feed address with yours.

# 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://feedproxy.google.com/wpsaviour[R=302,NC,L]

This is a simple and the most effective method to redirect your default feeds to Feedburner or Feedproxy account.
