I like checking FeedBurner statistics from time to time. Some might call this navel gazing, but I am interested in seeing what is going on in terms of RSS subscriber figures etc., This is especially important for the company blog.
So I was quite upset this evening to discover that the "all time" statistics option is no longer available in my Feedburner control panel.
I checked their official forums and was able to confirm that it's gone, though nobody from FeedBurner seems to be willing to offer an explanation as yet.
There is, however, still a way of getting the data out from Feedburner.
When you login to your account select the feed you are interested in.
You should see an Export option on the menu bar to the left and you can choose to download as either Excel format or CSV.
Once you've exported the data from FeedBurner you can then use it with any software you like to generate pretty (or not so pretty) graphs etc.,
It will be interesting to see how this change pans out.
Is this yet another case of a Google acquisition turning sour?
So are there any alternatives out there to FeedBurner?
