My initial searches on finding out how to track subscribers to our RSS feeds are making me wish we had used Feedburner rather than FeedForAll. I hope this isn't true.

We use Google Analytics and Hitslink for tracking on our website.

How do I go about tracking subscribers with FeedForAll with the Windows OS?

Because of the nature of syndication, tracking subscribers is not always reliable or accurate. For the best tracking, use a combination of tracking methods:

1. Tracking URLs
2. Transparent Gif
3. Web logs
4. Third party solutions will track different statistical information: FeedBurner, SyndicateIQ, Pheedo, FeedCraft, MeasureMap, SiteMeter
5. Use Unique URLs

Information is at http://www.feedforall.com/measuring-rss.htm

Since I posted this I went up to our Google Analytics account and used FeedBurner to start the process. It was easier than I expected. When I emailed this I was thinking that I had to buy FeedBurner to use it, but was pleased to see that I didn't have to.

Thanks for the recommendation to use a combination of tracking methods.
