The URLs are different. One is "feeds.usernomcs" and the other is
"feeds.feedburner." But I have the feeling that they both give FeedBurner
the linking credit.
Nobody will link to the feed. I am thinking about Feed Directories and
Readers like NewsGator or BlogLines. The link appears often and I was
thinking that I might be loosing some of the linking credit for SEO.
Would you worry about this?
I could try to put an XML page on my site but I have quite a few people /
directories linking to that feedburner link. I would have to contact a lot
of people and I am not sure who they all are. Would you go to the trouble of
creating your own?
