Feedburner Subscription Dropoff?
Posted By Jim On 10/24/2005 @ 11:23 pm In General | 19 Comments
I was wondering if any other bloggers out there noticed a dropoff in their RSS subscription statistics (I track mine using Feedburner) these past few days… the chiclet says readership has dropped approximately 20%. Monday is normally a heavy traffic day too, especially with the Carnival of Personal Finance. I wonder if it has to do with the loss of power in Florida because of Hurricane Wilma (6M without power! ). Please don’t construe this as me complaining about website hit statistics or anything like that (especially when people are without power or their homes), I’m just a vocal inquiring mind.
I looked at Darren at Problogger.net’s  chiclet and his usual 1200 subscribers have lowered to 900. I posed the question to him, in a comment here , and await a his professional response. I didn’t even mess up his name this time too.
Darren responded in his comments that he thought his dropoff had to do with his lack of posting. I thought this wasn’t interesting so I removed the post (because it’s not interesting) but apparently it has a little interest so I reinstated it.
As it turns out, due to a bug Yahoo is no longer reporting subscriptions to Feedburner . (from Joe Kottke himself, IT Director of Feedburner)
10/28 – Yahoo subscriptions are back!
