Netvibes makes it easy to migrate your Google Reader or iGoogle feeds to a better home

Since Google announced the closure of both services, hundreds of thousands of users have switched to Netvibes. This is because Netvibes is the only service that offers a dual dashboard-and-reader combo.

Netvibes (http://www.netvibes.com), the award-winning, dual dashboard-and-reader used by millions, today launched a special migration site to help millions of Google Reader and iGoogle users move their feeds to Netvibes. This announcement comes at a critical moment as the clock ticks down for Google Reader users, who will have their reader accounts shut down by Google on July 1st, and iGoogle users whose dashboard will disappear on November 1st this year.

“Since Google announced the closure of both services, hundreds of thousands of users have switched to Netvibes. This is because Netvibes is the only service that offers a dual dashboard-and-reader combo, which is particularly useful for users who need both,” said Freddy Mini, CEO, Netvibes. “Unlike other alternatives, Netvibes is powered by our own real-time RSS engine that’s not reliant on Google. We’ve been 100% free and ad-free since 2006, and backed by one of the world’s largest software companies, so we’re here to stay.”

With Netvibes, users can switch instant between feed reader and dashboard views. As a feed reader, Netvibes’ proprietary RSS engine allows users to read feeds as a continually flowing river of real-time news and activities. As a dashboard, Netvibes allows users to pick and choose from more than 260,000 apps and feeds—from email and weather to Wired and the New York Times, to Twitter, Flickr and Facebook. Combined, Netvibes has become the world’s most awarded feed reader and dashboard, earning accolades from TIME, TechCrunch, CNET, Web User UK, PC World, Business 2.0, etc.

Netvibes mobile allows users to read feeds from anywhere—even offline. All your read/unread articles will be synced across all your devices when you go back online, including your iPhone, iPad, Android device, or any desktop browser.

Founded in 2005, Netvibes pioneered the personalized dashboard and feed reader. Since then, Netvibes has always been completely free, logo free and ad-free for personal use. In 2012, Netvibes was acquired by Dassault Systemes, a global leader in PLM and 3D Experiences.

Netvibes also offers premium products for individual professionals, agencies and enterprises, featuring custom social analytics, alerts and team collaboration. Earlier this week, Netvibes announced its newest premium feature, MisoData, which enables anyone to automate their reports and drag-and-compare any internal or external data for instant insights.
