Most of the big website show their Feedburner subscribers to get more people to subscribe to their feed. They already have a good number of subscribers and more and more people easily subscribe to them. But most smaller bloggers tend to hide their subscriber count until they reach a decent number. And yes, it makes sense.
But what if you are too curious to know someone’s subscribers count without them showing it?
Below is a small tool that will let you know the subscriber count of any Feedburner feed. Just input the Feedburner ID and click the “Check Feedburner Feed” button. The subscriber count will be shown in the form of a chicklet below the button.
Below is the URL from where the above result is fetched. Just change the “feedID” with the Feedburner ID of the feed you want to see the subscribers of.
What is the Fix
If you have your feed on Feedburner and you can see your subscriber count, then that’s great and congrats, your feed is working 😀 . But if you don’t want to reveal your subscriber count for any reason, then we have a fix for you.
You need to login to your Feedburner account, then go to the “Publicize” tab. Now select “FeedCount” from the left pane and “Deactivate” the service.
If your feed is not showing and resulting in an error, then you can activate the service to see your subscriber count.
