We all know, importance of blog subscribers over one time visit. Blog subscriber helps you to keep getting returning visits, and your blog traffic will grow over time, as long as your RSS subscriber count is increasing. Now, I never recommend you to stick to Feedburner only to get more subscriber, infect I have shared a list of must have subscription option for bloggers. Here at ShoutMeLoud, I use Aweber, Feedburner, and Jetpack Email subscriber as main options to subscribe to blog updates.
RSS is the best way to notify your reader when you update any post. More number of RSS subscriber means you will get more clicks when you update any post. If you are new to RSS, I recommend you to read and learn: What is RSS?
Tips to increase RSS Subscribers:
RSS Subscription Placement:
The placement of RSS Subscription Icon is very Important , the user can land on any page of your Blog , So make sure the RSS Icon should be catchy and should be easily visible to the user.
The Placement of the RSS subscriber icon is very important.
The best Placement option is at The Top of the page.
Sidebar of the page is most Common choice and most appropriate one.
Another good placement suggestion is placing the RSS subscription option at the end of the post.
Description of The Blog:
The Title Bar Should have something about the Blog, as related user will get to know what it is about, and then they can quickly subscribe to Your RSS Feeds.
Some short and Intelligent words will be catchy and attract the targeted audience.
E-Mail Subscription Form:
E-Mail Subscription Is still one of the widely use subscription method used by most of the user.
So a subscription Box ( Not just the link) Is a better idea.
A Clear Subscription box On the Right sidebar or at the top of the page is highly recommended in a way to Increase your Subscription Count.
Instead of cluttering your sidebar with lots of social widgets. Placing a prominent RSS subscription box along with an icon will help your users to subscribe to your RSS feeds easily.
