Numbers Games

Louise Story – “[T]he Internet has given publishers a new form of ammunition: raw server data with precise numbers of site visits and page views.

Subscribers Now Up To 2,674


Google must be making some changes. 😉

You can see them in Reader’s feed search results (pictured below) and the Google Webmaster Tools. Additionally, our crawler reports them to the publisher each time we fetch the feed. Reader’s feed search was recently showing stale and incomplete data, but as of today (October 15) the numbers should be the same everywhere.”
