The Easy Way to Build Your Blog Readership

Watch the following video to see how easy it is to hack your Feedburner stats:

But, who wants to cheat their stats?

The fact is over 50 of you (now almost 60) check in here on your reader every day. That means a lot of me and it motivates me to put up the very best content for you. I have a goal to reach 100 readers by December.  Using Joop’s hack I could have that number tomorrow, but it wouldn’t represent you, the real people who read and comment and interact.

The easy way seldom cuts it.

    Seriously…why would anyone want to do that? That’s just wrong.

    I appreciate the integrity Billy. If they’re not real readers, then what’s the point anyways?

    I edited the post – it’s Joop’s hack, but Boris posted the video.

    Although I believe their intention is to cause a ruckus in order for Google to fix the problem. Had they truly wanted to exploit the hack they most likely would not publicize it.

    Yeah, I’m looking for well thought-out comments, not just numbers on my Feedburner widget. At least, that’s the excuse that I give myself because I only have like 32 subscribers.

    Interesting but not really sure what good it would do unless you were trying to sell your blog and value the asset by the number of readers. Some do that but if you can make the number whatever you want, it becomes diluted and not worth much at all.

    Joop is a poser 😉
