    I use the feedburner widget and as of now I only have 8 readers. Is there any fast way to increase this number? :mamoru:

    Not sure what to put in its place though. I guess I could always remove the bird:wtc:

    Or I could work the bird into my logo:bowdown:

    wow, i know alot of people that subscribe to rss feeds and what not

    you are probably losing a few users/readers by not having it on there

    and alot of people say that offering and using rss feeds is good seo

    make your shit auto discoverable by browsers like ff/safari, link it to your feedburner. i like feedburner b/c it will make your content available in any format

    Just put your link everywhere I'm sure someone is going to use it if they find your content interesting.

    you think people really give a fuck about your feed count subscribers? not will it only make people care less about your site if they see that you have 8 readers in comparison to some sites that have hundreds of thousands, they are likely to leave your site faster. its more of a way for large sites to brag about their reader count, not really for small sites with 5-10 readers. take the counter off and just leave an rss button is what i meant.

    :ugh:

    this was the comment

    how are going to twist it to say you meant to take off the count

    it looks like you are trying to save face

    and it does not matter if someone has 5 or 2500, it is not going to make that much of a difference to a user and they are not going to leave over it, they will leave if the site looks like shit, or is hard to navigate or if there is no new or interesting content

    You're correct about the fact that nobody will give a shit how many subscribers a site has. People aren't disagreeing with you about that. People here are disagreeing with your comment about nobody knowing about or using RSS. I think it's a pretty off-the-wall comment since it's been proven otherwise (at least through my eyes). Not just that, but people seem to often use it through their mobile apps and other devices.
