I had never thought about it one way or another and had joined some group that required short feed, so had it set to short. The group disbanded, but it never made any difference to me. I changed to full after I read somewhere that there are a number of people who will not subscribe to a partial feed, and figured RSS is for them, not me. My subscriber number went up right away (at least in the numbers I can figure out how to read). My traffic has also been slowly increasing, although I am sure that is because I have begun paying a little more attention to things rather than just whatever I feel like rambling about!

@Mika—Actually, as I pointed out in the article, FeedBurner, which serves over half a million publishers, has said that they've seen no evidence that partial feeds on their own drive visitors to websites. You can't force people to click through to your site with partial feeds. In fact, I know a lot of people who will resent partial feeds, never click through or even unsubscribe. That's going to hurt your site traffic even more. And I do know whereof I speak. I offer full feeds and my blog traffic continues to grow. My "work" blog, Marketing Pilgrim, offers full feeds to our 6000 readers, sells advertising on the site and has, usually, at least 10,000 readers daily. Really, if your concern is click throughs, I believe full feeds can only help you.

There´s 2 different approach for this, As a reader it´s brilliant solution to get content for free to your own RSS reader and I think it´s great for the publishers and readers as a hobby. However, if you´re offering for free more valuable content or even get comissions from your blog&website, it´s pretty much dead end if your site not stat any traffic instead your content can be RSS´d. Thought just raised my head recently as I didn´t have RSS feed and my readers required me to add this feature. Regards, Mika

You are guaranteed to not have me as a reader at all of your site if you do not have full feeds. I don't bother. I will subscribe and immediately unsubscribe if partial feeds are there. I read over 200 feeds a day. That is over 200 clicks if they were all partial. I click and comment on the most interesting of posts within this number of feeds.

it drives me NUTS when people don't put the full post in a feed. I read so many feeds i just don't have time to click through on every post unless i want to comment. I'm dead set against ever showing less then my full feed. good post jordan!
