@Kevin ... thanks for the link! Oooh and XL spreadsheet to play with! @Traci, thanks for getting Dawud's question while I was (eek!) offline yesterday. @Dawud, you'l see a natural fluctuation in your subs. Since FB counts feed requests, it dips on the weekends and peaks over the week. Totally normal and it gives you insight into your readers. So if you subs peak on weekends, you know you have more weekend readers than weekday readers!

Dawud - Feed subscriptions numbers can be feisty due to the way that the thousands of feed-reading clients check your feed for new content. But FeedBurner has catalogued the behaviors of all of these in order to give you the best estimate of subscribers. You can read more about how all of these metrics are calculated in our TechCrunch case study and well as this What's up with that? Vol. 1 post.

I'm still trying to make heads or tails out of my feed stats on FeedBurner. Some days I drop 10-15% of my feeds. Then it goes up again. Then down again. I know it's also counting bots, I just haven't yet gotten my mind around an accurate way to measure how many 'people' are subscribed to my feed.

[...] over a period of time. This is a very interesting report, and it certainly caused a lot of chatter all around town. While the report is very interesting, it also definitely raises several questions. [...]

Tris ... I've decided to try the formula in this post of mine to measure my engagement. It shows my "community index" is decreasing as my blog matures. http://minethatdata.blogspot.com/2007/02/measuring-community.html Thanks, Kevin
