Page Views and RSS

Richard MacManus writes in his blog, Read/WriteWeb, that RSS blows HTML away when looking at page views per user.

The web is changing. If you want to track visitor, you need to count the people who read you content via RSS, as well as those who visit your pages. According to my FeedBurner stats, this blog has twice as many people who read it via RSS than who surf here with their web browsers. Feedburner only counts people who use the FeedBurner burned feed. It does not count those people who use the Blogger RSS and Atom feeds from this site. Bloglines tells me the number of people who use Bloglines to read the feeds from this site, but I'm sure there are a number of people reading this blog via feeds who remain uncounted.

Eric from FeedBurner here. Just writing to let you know that if you want your whole stats package you can redirect your other feeds to your FeedBurner feed. Here is a link to how to do that from our forums. If you need any help just let me know. Thanks for using FeedBurner!
