Hello people, it is time to show what you know about your stuff.

I have a question here, How can i block people from subscribing to my site ?

I know if you have purchased domains from blogger, your site will be automatically be feed readable. How can i stop this? I want to prevent people from subscribing to my site !

Welcome to WebmasterWorld jaklang.

Password protecting the feed would be the easiest way to accomplish that.

Simply not providing a feed might be another way.

However, that won't stop those "create a feed for sites that don't have them" services. Then you get into blocking services and scrapers.

If you want private content put it behind a registration system and moderate who can see it.

The provision of a feed is a positive choice on your part. I am not clear what the problem is:

1. Are you trying to use Blogger as a hosting service for static html?
2. Do you want to provide RSS for selected subscribers only?
3. Do you want to make all access to your site restricted?
4. Are you simply unclear about what the provision of a feed involves?
