FeedBurner FeedSmith – A Plugin That Redirect Your RSS Feeds To FeedBurner


Whenever I visit a site and see their FeedBurner chicklet showing a great number of readers, I got very curious because mine was always showing 2 or 3 subscribers only and sometimes it’s showing ZERO! Then I stumbled upon 5xmom’s blog where I got my question answered. I’m glad you shared it with all of us. I feel like hugging you.

Yes, I’m curious. I want to know how many readers I have for this blog. So quickly I read the plugin instructions which are very easy to understand and activate it. How many readers I have in total? About 32. Not bad lah.

This amazing plugin is called FeedBurner FeedSmith which was originally released by Steve Smith. The plugin had since then been handed to the people at FeedBurner.

What does this plugin do? Built for self-hosted WordPress users, it redirects all your RSS readers to FeedBurner. That’s why you can see the number of my FeedCount chicklet shot up to about 30 readers.

    OMG Che-cheh!! AND Lilian too!! (No, not Lilian Too the fengshui si-foo)

    This plugin is definitely what I’m looking for as well! I have many readers who don’t subscribe to my feedreader wan. That’s why i recently added one huge rss button in my sidebar to promote my feedreader rss ;p

    haha… I think I don’t really need to know how many readers I have because it’s too few and embarrassing.

    I only use GetCliky to keep track of my blog traffic and I love it.

    I’ve just installed and activated it. It’s like so easy… almost couldn’t believe how easy it was. But then haven’t noticed the increase in numbers…. :waiting:

    Narrowband, ggggreat! :nerd: :nerd: I waited one day for the number to increase. Tunggu :waiting:

    Dreamcatcher, yes it’s free but it’s for self hosted WordPress only.

    Hcfoo, one of the reason I install FeedBurner chicklet is to show how many readers I have. It’s not for showing off. Counting feed readers is somewhat like counting those invisible readers that don’t usually comment on your blog or visit your blog but instead they read your feeds. They are different from blog traffic.
