We don’t need no stinking Feedburner Feed Stats!

I have always said that a persons RSS feed is a very valuable resource and it is so important to me that I would never trust a third party with that info. Recently I was complaining about how piss poor the pro stats are over at Feedburner.com. This was in response to the results I was seeing while using their service with techpodcasts.com

This resulted in a long discussion on the podcaster mailing list. A listener and reader of this website sat down and pounded out a program that will allow people to collect podcast statistics on their RSS feed locally and in a way that has not been possible before.

I am not a programmer and I am sure Chris will want to get some feedback on this and hopefully the community will help him improve this tool. I have not seen the resulting database log but their will have to be some database manipulation as many rss readers hit a rss feed on a hourly basis.

I am sure their will be a flood of comments on this and be nice to Chris he built this because I wanted an alternative for those of us that want to keep complete control of our RSS feeds. [cblackburn.blogspot.com]
