I read via Darren at ProBlogger that Google Reader is revealing subscriber number count.
So how do you find out how many Google Reader subscribers there are for your feed (or someone else’s)?
Firstly, I guess it helps if you have a Google Reader account. When you are logged in – click on “browse” in the side menu:
Next search for the feed you’re looking for:
Magically the subscription will appear:
Obviously this only shows the number of subscribers via Google Reader, and differs drastically from FeedBurner stats (well, it does for me, anyway).
Questions for you
- Do you notice a big discrepancy between your Google Reader figure and FeedBurner (if you use it)? By what coefficient (eg FeedBurner is showing X.X times more subscribers)?
- Is this figure a reliable metric to compare websites?
- Do you think I should add it into the formula for calculating the top 100 blog index?
