FeedBlitz RSS Metrics

Friday, May 29, 2009

It's been a while since I've posted here - we've been busy with the new RSS service launched in late March. Execution is key and for the last couple of months we've been tweaking the dials and making small incremental improvements as we've gone along to keep things going smoothly as we've grown. Time, then, for a quick highlight reel for FeedBlitz, the rapidly growing FeedBurner alternative.
  • From a standing start we now are already hosting nearly 2,500 active feeds.
  • Reporting is faster with:
    • Deeper drill-down into reach and activity
    • A new time range selector.
    • A new "today so far" option.
  • Large feed handling is better: If your feed is >512k we'll simply serve the newest articles up to that limit so that your readers always get your latest news.
  • SSL is now supported for feed readers.

These improvements complement higher profile changes like our FeedBurner Compatibility Mode, Top Articles autoposter, feed merging splice, tag-based feed filtering parameters, RSS SEO and Google Analytics integration.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the email automation side of things is growing like gangbusters too.

  • Active circulation is now well over 10.2 million.
  • Our largest list now has over 2.4 million individual subscribers.
  • Monthly mailing volume is now well over 110 million updates a month with weekday volumes averaging ~5 MM messages per day.

Thanks to everyone who's using our new RSS service for greater control, branding and timeliness; we'll be innovating further in the coming months!

May 15: Brief unscheduled maintenance under way

Friday, May 15, 2009

We need to apply a fix this morning; limited functionality for the email service for half an hour or so.

update 13:10 eastern - well, that took longer than we expected but all functionality is up and running and mailings are being caught up. Sorry for the hassle there.
