Which blogs have the most feed subscribers

I’m a bit of a stat head and enjoy trawling through log files and looking at pretty graphs. One statistic that I’m particularly interested in is the number of subscribers different sites have in different niches.

FeedBurner offer a great service for managing your sites feed and provide all sorts of interesting stats. You can also put one of their chicklets on your site to boast share with the world how many subscribers your site has.

I thought it would be both interesting and fun to create a top 100 (or so) of the sites with the highest feeds, so spent Saturday morning doing a big trawl around.

I’ve only been able to list sites that are both using Feedburner and choose to make their count public, so some of the big guns like Steve Pavlina, Lockergnome, etc. are absent from the list.

I will add new sites to the list as and when I find them, so if you know of a glaring omission with at least 2,000 subscribers please let us know via a comment, I’d like to build the list up to be a top 100 and as I’ve only covered a few niches that I know of I’m sure that I’ve missed plenty of others.

  1. Jay Brewer says:

    I find it interesting – we have at least 3 or more blogs that would be in this list:

    Kitchen Contraptions PRO Enabled 2,805 —
    Liquor Snob PRO Enabled 1,272 —
    Single Serve Coffee PRO Enabled 3,088 —

    Why didn’t these sites make it?


  2. There’s also Tom Raftery’s Social Media, over 1200 subs: http://www.tomrafteryit.net/

  3. We are past the 100 mark so I’ll only be adding new sites that have a subscriber count of above 5,000.

    Thanks again everybody.

  4. 3800+ and I don’t make the list sob sob


  5. Can you put all of these into an opml file so that they can all be imported into a feedreader at once?

  6. Well, my site has a feed with 18,283 subscribers.

  7. Here’s one more: http://www.technologyevangelist.com

    Looks like we’re at 1951 subscribers today.

  8. This gives us somthing to aim for!

  9. I’ve found a blog that is not in this list, and he deserve to be here.


  10. Great list Scott. Seems like technology is the clear leader!

  11. great list 😀

    i’m on the queue…

  12. TechCrunch.fr – over 80000

    Loic Le Meur’s blog – over 18000

  13. Feedburner just needs to publish a list. Maybe they could allow the top blogs to opt out of the list if the wanted.

  14. Manolo’s Shoe Blog has nearly 10,000 readers in its feedburner chicklet.


  15. ViolentAcres.com is currently showing 3386 subscribers (via feedburner image).

  16. WebDeux.info has 16000+ subscribers. And “Gengeta” is really “Genbeta”.

  17. I believe the Budget Fashionista should also be on this list.

  18. I guess I won’t make it on the list with 578 readers..

  19. Hey,

    I guess we should be included twice-
    Our main blog feed has 7,501 subscribers and our sales feeds has 2,501 subscribers.


    (Thanks Chris for the heads up :)

  20. Hey guys, thanks for compiling the stats and dealing with the comments. This is a tough art to gauge so it will never be perfect.

    Mark @ Dumb Little Man

  21. Al: Only accepting new sites over 5,000 doesn’t really make sense to me when you still list several sites with under 2,000. If the list is to be accurate, you should add anything with more than the smallest number currently on the list, then delete the feed with the least subscribers.

  22. The tech website http://www.popgadget.net has over 12434 subscribers and definitely ought to be on your list

  23. I have translated this great post into Chines.Thank you for your hard word:)

    Here is the Chinese post:国外RSS订阅数最多的100个博客

  24. PFBlog.com at 31,206.

  25. Great work. You should open a wiki to have the list maintained and enhanced by any blogger.

  26. Not sure when I’ll be able to join this list, but nice compilation never the less. But sadly, I’m a regular reader of stevepavlina.com and really wished I could know how many people have subscribed to him.
