I cant view who subscribes to my blog. I currently have it set up as "Subscribe to Vicki Aubin Bollywood Bytes by Email". just verified my website and my Google Analytics report is up....Where can I see who is subscribing to my blog...as opposed to just people who visit it? Am I missing some code, etc? I am technically challenged, please assist, thanks!

Hi Vickiaubin,

No need to feel frustrated. We can help you with this. If people would like to subscribe to your blog, they would use the RSS feed URL and add it to their RSS reader (like Google Reader., for example). You can find your RSS feed URL on your blog page, next to the icon that says "Subscribe to this blog".

If you would like to be able to send out emails to people to let them know that you have updated your blog, you would need to have some kind of subscription form on your site to gather their information. You can add a form by choosing one of the services and following the steps on this link: Forms.

Hi Vickiaubin,

This link will show you a long conversation concerning the topic "how much traffic is my sight getting." I am confident that it will help guide you to knowing the number of people that visit your site and more.

Hi Bri thanks...my Analytics are theoretically now working...but I dont see where I can see specifically WHO is SUBSCRIBING to my site updates...as opposed to just VISITING...guess I will have to search Feedburner/Google Analytics help for that?? Thanks again :)

Hi Vickiaubin - you may be interested in Feedburner. You'll have to spend some time understanding how it works but perhaps it is what you're looking for: http://www.google.com/support/feedbur... and www.feedburner.com

I'm not that familiar with Feedburner to be able to comment why it's not working. I think they should be able to help you on the link to their support documentation I posted...

We don't store or display that information so you will need to use Feedburner or a similar service for that kind of information.
