Finally, I hit my goal on the number of feed subscribers. According to my achievement plan I wrote last August 2007, by the end of October 2007, my feed subscribers’ number should be 500. But it seems that we achieve that too early.
Well, it’s not yet stable, because I know it will again dropped after several days, but at least I already hit that mark and there’s still big possibility that by late October 2007, I will be again hitting the 600 mark of the number of subscribers.
The Daily Average Subscribers
To let you know, according to the Feedburner’s data, on September 1, 2007 our blog has 301 subscribers only. And after 22 days (September 22, 2007 – date of writing this post) we already have exactly 500 subscribers. It means that in just 22 days, we gained 199 subscribers or 9.045 average daily subscribers.
Where did these subscribers came from?
Every time I’m online, I always check my MyBlogLog stats of this blog to see if where these subscribers came from. And I am glad to know that my unrelated posts on this blog are not wasted because most of the subscribers of this blog are coming from those posts. Consider the clicks on the FeedBurner’s email subscription button that has been recorded for September 20, 2007′s activities of my blog:
According to the stat, there are 116 visitors clicked the email-feed subscription button. And these subscribers are coming from my posts about movies, DVD, entertainment. And take note, no one is coming from my posts about Technology, Money and Internet. We don’t know yet how many of them verified their subscription. However this stat is already quite inspiring.
Some of the bloggers will be worried upon learning that their subscribers are actually coming from their unrelated posts because they have this belief that non-relevant subscribers will be lost along the way because the content they are expecting to be delivered into their feed readers or emails are not delivered, in the sense that you’re writing articles that are related to your niche but not related to the posts they’re reading and subscribed from.
However, in my case, I have no reasons to be worried about.
According to the stats, in 500 subscribers 212 of them are email subscribers. Even on the MyBlogLog stats I showed you above, it says that 116 are subscribing via email.
Did you know that:
- Most of the email subscribers are lazy enough to click the “unsubscribe” link which is included on the email sent to them?
- There is no reason that these subscribers will unsubscribe their subscription because they are receiving informative, inspiring and interesting articles?
In other words, even if these subscribers are coming from my non-relevant posts, they will still be interested to continue the subscription because they’ll benefit positive things from these posts.
From this experience, you should learn that it is not only that you’ll gain subscribers because you consistently post relevant contents, but you can also have much subscribers from those irrelevant posts you posted on your blog.
To let you know, even my posts about porrnns and sexxxx are also gaining feed subscribers.
And if you want to know one of the evil ways of gaining subscribers I did on this blog, consider reading my post, “Looking for updates on Licensure Examination Results?”
