    Well yeah, but it's built into Wordpress. Why use an external service?

    I use it like BP said above. For my blogs on blogger, which doesn't have a built in pinger like wp does. I've tried different programs and sites, but feedburner is free and it pings for me. Unless you know a better way for me to auto ping my blogger blogs????

    You can add adsense in the feed, and this is not so bad.

    in every 30 minutes feedburner checks your blog for new content. If you have new content then it takes it. When a reader opens his feed reader he accesses your post via feedburner. This helps decrease load on your server. As the feed goes from feedburner. So it helps a lot.
