My 2 most recent pet peeves:
- Permalinks that are actually Feedburner redirects.
- Feed links that are actually Feedburner landing pages
Anyone else or just me?
Some elaboration as requested by Jake Parrillo from the Publisher Services Team:
Thanks for the note.
To start, I use NetNewsWire as my aggregator.
By redirects, I mean the
tag of an item being a Feedburner link redirecting to, rather than being, the item’s permalink. When I’m quoting and linking to the item, I want the actual permalink. Today, to get it, I need to load the Feedburner link into a browser and wait for the redirect, then grab the permalink. Artificially inflating pageviews and generally slowing me down.
Yes, by ‘landing page’, I was referring to the “Browser Friendly” pages. When I clicked the feed link, I expected the feed url to be passed to NetNewsWire. With the “Browser Friendly” pages; I need to first realize that I need to take an action, then make a selection, then the url gets added to NNW. Again, slowing me down and not what I expect to occur.
