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.
