FeedForAll News & Tidbits
Measuring and tracking RSS while a fairly
simple concept, is really anything but.
Unlike websites, RSS have the added caveat
of potential syndication, making accurate
tracking a challenge to anyone but the extremely
tech savvy. It is not unrealistic for marketers
to want to know how many subscribers they
have, which items in their feeds attract
the most interest, or how many click-throughs
are generated as a result of an RSS feed.
There are a number of 3rd party providers
who focus on tracking the consumption of
RSS feeds. Some solutions are rudimentary
but likely sufficient for a small business
testing the waters with RSS. Other RSS tracking
solutions are more complex and while they
can come close to being accurate, with syndication
there is no solution that tracks with 100%
