Hi Roy,

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?
