Feed-Id in User Agents

Feed-Id in User Agents

At Superfeedr, we’re selfdogfooding. When we started looking at the User-Agents of services polling our feeds, we found numerous interesting things. One of them is that several feed reader do include a feed-id in the User-Agent strings. This is quite convenient for debugging purposes and we also believe it should help us provide more information to the publisher of these feeds in the coming weeks.

Starting today, you should see that Superfeedr’s User-Agent now includes a feed-id as well! Stay tuned for more on this front very soon!
