What’s the deal with that big giant button? I wrote recently in
The Blogs & Search Blogs
With The Most Readers about a
new list of search blogs ranked by the number of RSS readers they have.
We’re at just under the 10,000 mark, which is great for a blog that’s less than
five months old.
Still, I want more readers. In particular, a lofty goal. By the end of May, I
want to break the 20,000 subscriber mark. Help us reach this goal! Take the
feed! Tell a friend to take our feed. Tell whatever feed reader provider you use
that we ought to be a default feed choice!
Need more help understanding our feeds?
See this page, that explains
how we actually have two — along with two email newsletters. The icon above is
for our main feed that gives you everything we publish on the blog.
For those who will say you’d subscribe if we were full feed, my response
remains as I said
earlier this year. I’m still considering it. Strongly, and within a couple of
month. FYI, we’re actually what I call a "mixed" feed, in that some shorter
items go out full text, and the daily round-up post
SearchCap also goes out
Want to accelerate that decision? Here’s my throw-down. If we hit 50,000
subscribers by the end of May, we’ll go to full-feed except for exceptionally
long posts (readers know we can sometimes post really, really long articles. I
want to test exactly what that does to our feed before I can commit fully to
those types of posts).
Oh — like that big icon? Help yourself
here. And if
you like the "Subscribe!" idea, go for it. But give this post a hat-tip link if
you’re inspired, maybe a mention people should take your feed and ours? Please?
