There are a lot of us starting to pore over our Feedburner stats and we aren’t sure what to make of them.
Pamela Parker has a good post on this topic.
A number of comments on my “It’s The Feed Stupid” post suggest that the “default pings” from feedreaders are generating hypergrowth numbers that just aren’t accurate. Other comments suggest that it’s easy to figure out which pings are actual requests for a post and which pings are just “checking in”.
I don’t know the answer, but here are my feedburner stats for the past 7 days. I’d really love to know if my feed is growing that fast.
