Just an RSS feed option with the ability to tell you how many subscribers there

    There is no foolproof method :/

    Maybe there are some plugins for it? I make a search and didn't find anything.

    Apparently not Asapy. It's a bit rubbish isn't it. I mean, in this day and age when we track and monitor everything, and no-one can tell anyone how many RSS subs there are. There may be just one, or there could thousands. But knowing would make a big difference the bottom line of just about every organisation out there. Rant over. I gave up looking. If anyone finds a way round this I'd be very interested to hear of it. Meanwhile, back to the drawing board...

    You have to use third party tools for that, and even then it's really spotty.

    But think of what you're asking. It's NOT 'how many people are subscribed' but 'how many people visit this specific URL' - Sure we can tell you that, but it's not the same as subscribers to, say, an email list.

    This is one of the reasons why, while I love RSS, it never took off :(
