Is anyone else’s Feedburner stats messed up?Â It looks like other blogs are having their stats reported correctly but mine are way off.Â Â Last week my subscribers went from 257 to 199 overnight and then up to 292 the next day.Â This week they’ve gone from 278 to 174 in two days.Â I don’t think I’ve done anything to alienate the readers so much that they would unsubscribe in such large numbers. When I go to Feedburner my number of visits isn’t being recorded at all.Â I suppose it is something to do with Google absorbing Feedburner and the numbers will eventually be accurate again.Â The numbers aren’t really that important but it stil annoys me.
I wish Google didn’t have so much control over everything.Â They stripped me of my Page Rank last year and it doesn’t look like they’re ever going to restore it.Â I resisted putting Adsense on here for a long time but I’m sure that I can use the revenue more than Google.Â I’m trying affilliate links instead of Adsense this month but they’re way behind what I made from Adsense.Â I’ll probably put Adsense back next month.Â If Google is going to annoy me I might as well make some money from them.

I noticed huge declines & jumps on a few sites, myself …
And my pagerank went from a 3 to a 2, immediately after I put EntreCard on my site.
Guess Google doesn’t like EntreCard!
My page rank JUMPED after taking Entrecard off. I tend to discount the downward weird valleys from Feedburner. I figure that they can’t invent more subscribers than I really have, but there are always bugs that can misrepresent the numbers lower. Or maybe I’m just thinking positive!
Hmm. Google took my Page Rank well before I ever put Entrecard on my site. They knocked both of my sites from pr3 to 0. They did restore Bank Bonuses back to pr2 last month and it does have Entrecard on it although I almost never use it for that site. I’m guessing they’re not restoring the Page Rank here because I have paid text links.
I know Entrecard does bring new readers to my site but I’m not sure if it brings enough to be worth the hassle. Perhaps I’ll do some testing to see how beneficial it is or isn’t.
YES! Mine goes from ~50 to ~25 if I don’t write a new post for 2+ days. Each weekend I start out in the 50s and by Monday morning I am down to 25. Then on Tuesday I am back up throughout the week. I am not sure if it has something to do with people who sign up through email vs. rss feeds?
They stripped me of my page rank on my other blog, which is now at 0 and yet has more visits, subscribers etc than this blog which has a pr of 4 !?
I also got banned from adsense and I have no idea why !
Laura- Page Rank is somewhat of a mystery and Google isn’t going to explain it. That sucks about the adsense. Google threatened to ban me last year but luckily it didn’t happen. Google is so large and has a virtual monopoly on parts of the web that they can pretty much do what they want.
I’m late to the party, but my subscriber list took a big dump for one day last week. I was happy to see it come back the next day.
Google banned me from adsense not long after I started my blog, and I didn’t do anything wrong. Silly.
Sometimes feedburner does not count the subscribers from google reader. Google reader is by far the dominant component and it never goes down (except when it is intermittently dropped). On those days you can get a fair estimate of how many readers those long living sites with tens of thousands of readers really have(!).
