Comments on Google Operating System: Are Google's Feed Readers Very Popular?

I normally see your feed in Google Desktop's Web Clips. I don't know if they include it by default as I don't remember visiting prior to seeing it there. I love your content though, so keep up the great work.

I noticed that everyone started to say that Google Reader is very popular, but I think Google's Personalized Homepage has a much bigger chunk from the subscriber's numbers: it's much more visible (linked from the homepage), easier to use and older than Google Reader.

Google Reader was launched in October 2005, but most people started to use it after the last year redesign (September 2006).

On the other hand, Google IG was launched in May 2005. Initially you could add feeds from a predefined list. From July 2005, you could add any feed. Most major changes to Google IG happened in the latest months (tabs, snippets), but they were only enhancements to an already popular product.

So when I said Google's feed readers in the title, I referred mostly to Google Personalized Homepage.

Maybe among the 19768 readers from Google Reader there is a big part of Google employee who use their corporate tool ;-)

Cybernet News looks at the difference between yesterday's subscriber numbers and today's numbers for some popular feeds (hosted by Feedburner).

Techcrunch has around 30% Google subscribers, for example.

2007-02-17T11:31:00.000-08:00

I imagine that a larger number of Google subscribers found you by searching, or subscribed to a friend's public Reader tag, or exported their OPML from another reader when they moved to Google Reader, or subscribed using the Firefox RSS subscription mechanism.

That, plus the difference between "total" and "30-day active" probably accounts for it.

2007-02-17T10:47:00.000-08:00

I'll bet a good number of your Google based subs have a button/bookmarklet installed on their browsers to add feeds to their reader. That may account for the difference in the number of clicks of your button and actual subs.

WOW! You got loads of subscribers and didn't expect Google Reader is so popular these days. Great job, Google!

Hello Ionut.
If you want to know how many readers read your blog, you can count the hits on an image.
Analyze the logs and the Referer.
You'll be able to know how many times the picture is displayed from "http://google.com/reader/", etc.
I think it's the best solution...

2007-02-17T09:01:00.000-08:00

Perhaps the count includes the two systems that people could subscribe to the feed on even if it is the same account.

For example, if I subscribe to the feed in both Google Personalized Homepage and Google Reader then I could as two viewers.

This is just a guess of what could happen.

I started using Google Reader when it first came out, and at that time I was really looking to join the RSS revolution so to speak, but just couldn't get my head around some of the online feed readers like Bloglines or feed reader apps like Newsgator, etc.

Google Reader was the one that really turned me into reading RSS feeds exclusively, and I love it to death. From an innumerable number of tabs I just have one tab for Google Reader, and one for Gmail, and that's it.

2007-02-17T07:43:00.000-08:00

though I am not very regular user of google feeder nor my blog is a very active one,the logical inference can be drawn for large google popularity.

The part of the answer lies in your post itself that Google reports total no. of subscribers whereas other report only active subscribers that too in last 30 days....

p.s. my blog is not anyway related to google or this post.

I have to agree.

8/9s of my feeds subscribers are from Google - which really surprised me.
