To better understand the reach of the bloggers I was getting in touch with, I needed to know the number of RSS subscribers they each had. After a little research on the Web, I found satisfaction with Feed Analysis, a Feedburner feed analytics tool hosted by BlogPerfume. Feed Analytics offers the following:
- Column chart of subscribers per month
- Line chart comparing subscribers, hits, views, and clicks daily
- Pie chart breaking up RSS consumption per days of the week.
- View the past 6 month, or the past 50 months!
Here is the chart for the HyveUp feed:
As you can see, above the chart is an estimate of the value of an ad on a blog, and the value of the blog.
Same here, above the chart are a few numbers that help you understand a feed’s activity.
And again some predictions on a blogger’s RSS subscriptions growth for the months to come. Overall, it is a great tool to get a visual glimpse a one blogger’s RSS network size. My only regret is that this data is not downloadable in a CSV format, this would have been pretty neat for record purposes (or a button to transfer the data on a Google Doc).
