There are two ways to build a feedburner email subscription widget for a WP blog – you can use a Plugin or you can customize an HTML Code.

Once you have the final code – copy and paste the code in a text widget for your wordpress blog. You can also put one feedburner email subscription form at the bottom of every blog post. You can use this Plugin to help you with that.

This is an easy alternative to using a plugin. You can do either one but if you’re working on the speed of your WP blog then this is the best way to go (by not using an extra plugin).

This is a very helpful method to build up the traffic to your blog. Especially if you are someone who blogs on a daily basis and you are really dedicated on creating very valuable content for your readers.

As the number of people who subscribed to your feedburner newsletter grows, the more often you publish content, the more often email updates will be sent out to your subscribers and that can help you build up the traffic to your blog tremendously!

If people like your content, then they will have no problem checking out what you have for them next. The Feedburner Services can really help you build a huge blog audience, all for free.

You can actually see your subscribers emails and you can also download the entire email database from the dashboard. Just sign into your feedburner account, go to the Publicize Tab and go to the email subscriptions service – you will find the subscribers at the bottom. 😀
