I checked my feed count this afternoon about 4 PM (We’re in +8 GMT) and was ridiculed by this funny stat showing that my subscriber count was buried down to 290 from 564. Honestly, that shocked me at first as I haven’t posted from the last 2 days, but to think of it, my subscribers aren’t really that mean to unsubscribe that fast (Well I hope so!) as there are days where my blog is in drought longer than this week.
In the hope of another Feedburner hiccup, I visited other top blogs in my niche and viola:
Problogger from 33,000ish
John Chow from 13,000ish
Copyblogger from 26,000ish
It’s A Swing!
Just to be sure, I logged in on my feedburner account (That I don’t often do) and looked at what feed reader my subscribers are using. Yesterday 46% or 260 of them are using Google reader.
Subtract that from 564 that was my feed count yesterday and it will total to 304 subscribers. A pretty close figure to my feed count today of 290 – or you can do it in vice versa if Google forgets to count the other feed readers and it would total to 260, a close call to 290 also.
So to those of you who are worrying about the feed count drop, fear no more. Let the techie guys work on it.
Just about a minute ago, Feedburner updated their stats and yep, they forgot to count Google feedfethcer.
I wonder why they always forget their own reader :roll:
