The stats for this blog show that most readers are using a feed reader of some kind (predominantly Google Reader).
But, that’s not normal.
Matt Mullenweg has posted some stats across the entire WordPress universe of blogs for the month of May, and the numbers make interesting reading:
- Active Blogs: 965,041
- Page Views: 1,134,796,234
- Page Views (in an RSS feed): 71,351,276
In other words, fewer than 7% of page views to WordPress blogs are via a feed reader.
I’m sure that number is much lower than most technical people would assume. Not using a feed reader is so inefficient, eh, and who would be that silly?!
