How to add FeedFlare below your Blog Post

Sponsored Links

What is FeedFlare?
FeedFlare
gives your subscribers easy ways to email, tag, share, and act on the content you publish by including as many or few of the services such as Email This, Comments Count, Subscribe to this Feed, Digg, Facebook, StumbleUpon and many more. FeedFlare places a simple footer at the bottom of each content item, helping you to distribute, inform and create a community around your content.

Step by step tutorial on How to add/insert/embed FeedFlare below your Blog Post.

1. Login to your Feedburner account.
2. Click on the Feed Title.
3. Click on Optimize Tab.
4. Click on FeedFlare.
5. Check on the services you want to display in your Feed or on your Site.
6. Note that there is a FeedFlare Preview/Ordering below the list of services. This lets you see how FeedFlare will appear in your feed and/or on your site. Just Click and Drag the links on the location that you want.
7. Click on Save.
8. Before the Save button, there is a "Get the HTML code to put FeedFlare on your site". Choose the Blogging Platform that you use (I used Blogger).
9. A pop-up window will appear and it contains the instructions on how you embed the FeedFlare on your blog. Just follow the instructions.
10. View your blog.
11. Note that it will often take 5-30 minutes for FeedFlare links to show up below new posts on the site, but delays of ~24 hours should not occur (FeedBurner Support).

Visit my Tech Blog and you will see a Live Sample about this tutorial. It will look like the image below.
"Important Note:
If you use our FeedFlare service in your feed (and especially, on your website or blog), you should know that FeedFlare links won't appear below your content unless your feed is polled at least once after a new post by a web browser, news reader, or other feed aggregator. Feeds that don't yet have a lot of subscribers are most susceptible to going minutes, or even hours, without FeedFlare appearing.

The remedy? Visit your FeedBurner feed in a browser after you've updated your site with a new posting. Visiting your feed forces FeedBurner to poll for updates if no one has visited it in a while, and this polling action should lead to creation of FeedFlare links shortly thereafter.
