Over on the FeedBurner Weblog,
Dick writes about My
Yahoo Subscriber Numbers, noting that the numbers were stuck for a
while and that things are now better.
I checked in with Scott Gatz at My Yahoo to get the scoop. Here's
what I found out.
- The bug lasted from October until last week. So it may have
looked like My Yahoo users stopped subscribing to your feed for
- The bug was confirmed and fixed this week.
- The subscriber count is generated from a rolling 30 day look at
who actively viewed your feed(s) in the 30 days. The numbers are
currently updated on a weekly basis. They're working in
reducing that delay.
So re-check your stats. Remember that YahooFeedSeeker will leave a
