RSS feedreaders

Pietel vroeg zich af welke feedreaders zijn lezers gebruiken. Ik gebruik zelf vrij intensief Bloglines.

De RSS-feed van dit weblog wordt aangemaakt door Feedburner. In de Feedburner-statistieken heb ik nagegaan welke feedreaders de RSS-feed van dit weblog lezen. Het aantal lezers van de RSS-feed (althans volgens Feedburner) schommelt de laatste week tussen de 25 en de 30. De kans is dus groot dat de onderstaande lijst van feedreaders niet representatief is. Bovendien zijn er readers die slechts af en toe opduiken.

Onder de rubriek "Readers and Aggregators" vermeldt Feedburner de volgende tools.

Alesti is a web-based feed reader.

Bitacle is part search engine and part aggregator. You can add feeds to the site and then search across all the feeds in the catalog for a shared aggregator collection.

BlogBridge is a desktop feed reader for Windows, Linux and Mac. BlogBridge provides a full suite of feed reading tools including feed search, discovery and categorizing capabilities that are unique to BlogBridge.

Bloglines is a web-based aggregator that makes it easy to keep up with your favorite blogs and newsfeeds. With Bloglines, you can subscribe to the RSS feeds of your favorite blogs, and Bloglines will monitor updates to those sites.

Google Homepage or Google Feed reader
Google Reader and the Google homepage both access feeds via a common robot request, so this indicates that some number of Google users are viewing your content in either the Google Reader or Google homepage.

This bot belongs to Dutch media company ilsemedia, who operate Feedo, a RSS search engine and personal newsportal. With Feedo you can search in latest news and weblog-postings, search for RSS feeds in the Feedo RSS guide, compose personal newspages which you can share with others and setup searchfilters to keep up with the latest news.

Jakarta Commons Generic Client
Jakarta Commons is just a java component library that is widely used. There are a number of feed readers, some quite sophisticated, some hacked toghether, that only identify themselves as having been built with this particular java library and provide no further information about their identity. Thus, this particular "category" of feed reader is a catch all for one or more readers that are only partially identifying themselves when accessing your feed. If you know people are accessing your feed through a client that you don't otherwise see in this list of clients and aggregators, it's quite likely that the client is either sending no identifier or using one of these this catch-all java identifiers.

B.V.L.G.: u bent een krak!

Blogger pietel had op 24 februari, 2006 10:23, de volgende bedenking ...

Btw, die NetNewsWire dat ben ik. (naast mogelijke anderen)

Blogger Bruno Peeters had op 24 februari, 2006 11:29, de volgende bedenking ...

Hallo Pietel,

Er is tot nu toe maar 1 NetNewsWire lezer, die hierbij dus geïdentificeerd is.

Ik ben één van de vijf personen die jouw blog via Bloglines lezen.

Anonymous Anoniem had op 24 februari, 2006 15:12, de volgende bedenking ...

Via Bloglines zijn er momenteel 42 abonnees, waarvan ik er één ben

Blogger Bruno Peeters had op 24 februari, 2006 15:44, de volgende bedenking ...

Help, 42 abonnees voor mijn blogje. Ik zie er overigens maar 9 (voor de RSS-feed via Feedburner). Voor de ATOM-feed (rechtstreeks van Blogger) zijn er 3 abonnees (mezelf inbegrepen).

Blogger pietel had op 24 februari, 2006 16:23, de volgende bedenking ...

K zit nu met de vraag of ik mijn andere feeds kill, zodat mijn feedburner stats kloppen.

Maar misschien willen mensen gewoon een feed op de berichten en zien ze daar liever geen andere rommel tussen.

Waar blijft de google analytics voor je wordpress feeds!?

Blogger Bruno Peeters had op 25 februari, 2006 09:38, de volgende bedenking ...

Ik gebruik het Blogger platform voor dit blog - althans voorlopig toch. Van wordpress maak ik dus geen gebruik.

Ik heb google analytics enkel opstaan voor de URL bvlg.blogspot.com, niet voor de rss-feed of de atom-feed.

Anonymous Anoniem had op 27 februari, 2006 14:49, de volgende bedenking ...

@bvlg: Kan je Google analytics dan gebruiken voor je RSS-feed?

Blogger Bruno Peeters had op 27 februari, 2006 20:02, de volgende bedenking ...


Ik denk niet dat dit mogelijk is.

Anonymous Anoniem had op 29 juli, 2006 17:46, de volgende bedenking ...

Buiten feed on feeds heb ik nog steeds niet een reader gevonden die je op je eigen server kan installeren. Een webbased reader is zo enorm traag en ik denk dat het een heel stuk sneller kan als het op je eigen server geinstalleerd staat.

Kent iemand zoiets?


Heeft u ook een bedenking ?
