Bloglines Share of Feedburner Numbers?

    August 11, 2006

I know a lot of folks out there use FeedBurner to outsource the hosting and metrics of their RSS feeds. I’ve not done so (yet?) but am curious about one thing.

If you use FeedBurner, what percentage of your overall subscribers are using Bloglines?

You might think that this is a roundabout way of asking trying to ascertain Bloglines share of the “market” but it’s not. I believe there’s enough bias in the types of people who even use Bloglines that the number I’m asking for aren’t terribly meaningful in getting at their share of the market.

Any, please share if you have such data. I’ve always assumed (meaning that I pulled this out of my ass) that Bloglines represents between 30% and 50% of my subscribers. But for all I know, I’m way, way off.

Your numbers could help to triangulate a bit. In fact, I suspect they’ll help a lot of people wondering the same thing.
