RSS Feeds vs Traffic, Blog Comments
Posted By Barry Ritholtz On January 30, 2010 @ 3:30 pm In Weblogs | Comments Disabled
RSS feeds have exploded — we went from 20k to an astounding 138,000. But as they happened, the blog traffics and comments have slipped. Unless its a provocative topic, comments are int he 20-40 range (as opposed to 80-100 from last year).
Does this matter much?
Right now, I do full RSS posts. Should I reduce those feeds (can you do 50% of a post?) to bring people to the site, and generate more discussions?
Or is this just the natural evolution of the web?
