If you have a blog with Google Blogger, is there any way to see how many people are subscribed to it? In the blogger dashboard there's a lot of statistics, but I don't see any for subscriptions. Is this possible?

The best way to track subscriptions is through Google Feedburner, which redirects your RSS feed. The only downside is that if you're transmitting your feed elsewhere, say a tool that posts to your Twitter or Yahoo Pipes, those bots/scripts will show up as subscribers and will skew the results slightly.

I don't think I understand. How does Feedburner work?? How will this accomplish what I'm looking for? –  Thomas Stringer Apr 30 '12 at 0:56
    
Feedburner redirects your feeds and counts subscribers. You could've found that out if you carefully read the 10 sentences on the login page & clicked Learn more. Blogger doesn'tr track subscribers otherwise. –  dnbrv Apr 30 '12 at 1:04
    
Perfect, I'll give that a shot. Thanks! –  Thomas Stringer Apr 30 '12 at 1:43
