Here is a link to the new beta version of Bloglines
Lots of tech blogs are talking about it, but there is a good reason that they all talk about new feed readers, and it is not just because it is newsworthy.
Every time they talk about a new blog reader, and a chunk of their readers test it out, even on the short term, they get more readers counted in Feedburner.
Bloglines readers are also counted for many monetization programs such as Text Link Ads and ReviewMe, to rate your blog or set the pricing.
The most popular blogs also benefit from default RSS subscription packages for “technology” or “political” blogs.
Techcrunch might have 100x more readers than me, but not 400x
The additional 75% of their readership comes from default subscription packages.
The rich get richer.
So go an test out Bloglines beta today
I would welcome any new bloglines subscribers, even if you don’t stick to it
