Romance and Illness – Who Knew it Was a Hot Topic?

I blog for my ministry, Rest Ministries; it’s more of a way of having a casual voice with my audience. As the ministry has grown, I’ve become more of someone in the background– marketing, writing books, promotions, etc. and so I use my blog to still stay in touch with people.

So I haven’t really looked at my statistics. I am not a “hot blogger” and though it would be nice to get some fabulous keyword and jump to #1 on Google (like I’ve been taught in my formal internet marketing seminars) I’m not holding my breath.

But I just got onto Feedburner to glance my statistics.  And these numbers surprised me!

The first column is the date, the second it the subscribers for that day.

Date Subscribers Hits
2008-01-14 53 259
2008-01-15 53 285
2008-01-16 2989 298
2008-01-17 1441 303
2008-01-18 54 421
2008-01-19 2862 381
2008-01-20 108 352
2008-01-21 271 360
2008-01-22 45 396

3000? Then 1400? then nearly 3000 again? I quickly looked up what I’d blogged about that day and guess what? It was the days I posted my articles that I said were free to reprint.

So before I did a little happy dance, I wanted to make sure I knew what a ”subscriber” really was. Feedburner says this:

What is a Subscriber? How does FeedBurner tally them?
Subscribers is an approximate measure of the number of individuals currently subscribed to your feed.

How is it calculated?

FeedBurner’s subscriber count is based on an approximation of how many times your feed has been requested in a 24-hour period. Subscribers is inferred from an analysis of the many different feed readers and aggregators that retrieve this feed daily. Subscribers is not computed for browsers and bots that access your feed.

Subscribers counts are calculated by matching IP address and feed reader combinations, then using our detailed understanding of the multitude of readers, aggregators, and bots on the market to make additional inferences.

Okay… so it looks like those numbers are legit. So far I’ve not found any announcement on Feedburner triple their numbers accidentally or anything.

So what did I write that was so amazing? I was just as curious as you so I went and looked! The posts are titled:

One thing I know for certain is that my efforts to write articles on a more consistent basis, and use the Unique Article Wizard (see the link down on the bottom right under “My Faves”) I am definately gaining some new visitors. Just 24 hours after I released these 2 articles, with the keywords I was targeting, I was holding the top 35 slots on Google out of 50 (yes… amazing, isn’t it)

So… you never know. Promoting your book is always a work in progress and oftentimes one big experiment. Today I discovered that something I thought “just may work” is actually working. And that is a good thing.
