That’s pretty amazing. Congratulations! I wonder if there is any type of ranking system for Feedburner? It would be interesting to see how you rank with other high profile users of the system.
That’s fantastic! Congratulations.
lol on share.opml.org you have reached 1337
Out of curiousity, What sort of rate is your readership increasing at?
Thanks Richard. It was doubling every three months for the first year. For that trend to continue, though, we’d have to add another 50k subscribers by the end of September, which isn’t going to happen.
and that figure doesn’t even include Google Reader users like me does it? afaik they still don’t tell you how many users they are actually collecting the feed for.
Sorry, I chose my words poorly. I was asking a question, curious to know how they (Feedburner) calculate that number. Clearly the number of hits they’re getting for your feed must be going up, and perhaps the number of unique IP addresses is going up too. Do they count all the readers at Microsoft as 1 subscriber? Just curious to know what the method is.
I congratulate you a lot Mike, as you noted there are lots of positive mentions of TechCrunch in the archive of my weblog. I didn’t mean it in a negative way.
I read “boast” in this context to mean “to own” rather than “to show excessive or undue pride.”
Dave, a while ago Feedburner revealed portions of their methodology in a podcast. I’ll write up my analysis of it later today and shoot you a link.
You and your team of contributors deserve to celebrate for a job well done! I have not missed a single post since your launch and I continue to be impressed with the quality of the content that you push out every single day.
Well Done Mike!
You’re right Dave. removed update.
Hey Mike, the traction is impressive. More often then normal I dont agree with your opinions, I still have to say “give the devil his due ” –
Con’grats and it now up to you and team to hold onto them buggers … and create you niche community.. I
I think now is the time to fr you place a chatbox on the main pages !!
While the number may read 100k, I believe that TechCrunch has had a much bigger impact than Feedburner numbers can represent here.
