CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA

RSS Subscribers Count (whether it is genuine or not) is one of the ways, advertisers use to analyse the popularity of blogs and websites, well mostly blogs.

If someone is interested in keeping their banners or links on your blog, they will most probably check your Alexa Rank, PageRank, and RSS Subscribers, since these 3 can be easily obtained. But some bloggers disable RSS Subscribers Count.

Below I mentioned 3 simple ways to find the RSS Subscribers. Though they are not that much accurate, they are however approximate.

#1 – Finding The RSS Subscribers Using FeedProxy URL

Find the URL of the RSS Feed of your desired blog. In this case, I’m considering Digital Inspiration.

This is the sample address of the RSS Feed (this one uses FeedBurner’s MyBrand Feature).

http://feeds.labnol.org/labnol

Grab the feed name (i.e., labnol)

Append http://feedproxy.google.com/~fc/ just before it. The result is :

http://feedproxy.google.com/~fc/labnol

Now use this URL to check the Real RSS Subscribers Count.

You can also use this URL for detecting : http://feeds.feedburner.com/~fc/labnol


#2 – Finding RSS Subscribers Using Google Reader

Google ReaderYou can also use Google Reader to check the RSS Subscribers of blogs. This method will be useful when your desired blog is not using FeedBurner service.

These numbers are however approximate as they only include the RSS subscriber base of Google Reader, iGoogle and Google Desktop users as determined by Google FeedFetcher. You can also use Google Reader to track your comments on the web.
