Rss feed not updating
Feed Burner does not process feeds that are larger than 512K.Remember, your feed is an update on your content — not an archive for it — and you should use your publishing tools’ controls to make sure your feed doesn’t grow like kudzu possessed.Pingshot is a feature of Feedburner that ensures that RSS readers are informed when your feed has been updated.You can activate this via the publicize section of Feedburner.If your feed hasn’t been updated in a few hours it’s worth pinging Feedburner so that it updates your feed.It’s worth checking that pinging is setup correctly if your feed hasn’t been updated in a few hours though if you have a problem with your RSS feed not updating frequently it could be another issue.I knew that W3 page caching wasn’t stopping the WP Mods RSS feed from updating so I had to look into another solution. One of the options it offers is resyncing your feed. After attempting to resync my feed, Feedburner advised that the problem with my feed was due to the RSS feed file size being more than 512kb.This was something that I hadn´t known about before.
Pingshot automatically checks your site every 30 minutes.This made it clear that the problem was being caused by my article ‘link’.That was the first article that hadn’t been published to the feed. This large volume of text had obviously pushed the file size of my feed over the 512kb limit.Most services that update Facebook and Twitter rely on feeds to update.This means that if your Feedburner feed isn’t being updated; no one will know that you have new content.
