FB StandardStats Plugin Does FeedFlare!

Lee Odden     Blogging Strategy

When I built the FB StandardStats plugin I built it to make it easy to add in the necessary code to get the new StandardStats up and running. People mentioned that it worked with FeedFlare but it didn’t hit me until today how cool this plugin really was!

“FeedFlare allows publishers to easily build ‘interactivity’ into the content they create, making it simple for subscribers to tag, email or share their content with others. Publishers can include a variety of services including a live display of the number of comments to each post, the ability to email the author directly and show the number of blogs that link to their item. Publishers can choose to include FeedFlare within the feed itself as well as on their blog or site.”

It first started to sink in the other day when I had to make the updates due to the FeedFlare confusion that may happen when a feed is burned though FeedBurner and this plugin was also installed. But it wasn’t until today that the light bulb when off. If you select FeedFlare items to show up in your blog, the FB StandardStats Plugin displays it!

No extra coding needed. Just install and configure the plugin and you’re good to go. If you have StandardStats active, it’ll keep track of your visitors. If you have FeedFlare setup to show on your blog, it’ll do that too. How cool is that?!

  1. You made the plugin without realizing that it was inserting the FeedFlare code? That’s a good one!

    I really love your plugin and of course immediately activated FeedFlare for those handy Del.icio.us and Digg me links 🙂

  2. Yea, I was so focused on StandardStats that I spaced the FeedFlare thing. 🙂

  3. And… any way of using StandardStats without showing FeedFlares on my blog? I only want them on my RSS.

  4. Sure Marcos. Log into your FeedBurner account and go to the Optimize tab. Then under FeedFlare you’ll see two columns of checkboxes. One for Feed and one for Site. Simply uncheck any items under the site header and they won’t appear on your blog.

  5. Thank you a lot Thomas! I didn’t notice that option.

  6. Not a problem. 🙂
