Tweak your design, increase RSS subscribers by 80% in 25 days

Tweak your design, increase RSS subscribers by 80% in 25 days Since I posted How to Increase Subscribers by 50% in 30 Days, the subscriber numbers have increased their rate of growth. We’re now looking at an increase of 80.5% over just 25 days. Because I’ve been using my traffic building worksheet, I’m able to determine what it is that I did that led to this increase. As I outlined in my earlier article, it was changes to the design of the site that had the single greatest impact. Iwant to illustrate just how big an impact these changes have had. Take alook at this chart on the right. This shows the subscriber activity forthe entire life of The Blog Studio. Note that after a nice initialgrowth period, the subscriber level tops off right below 200, and stayedthere for an entire year. Nothing really changed, despite the fact thatthe site went through 3 designs in that period. It wasn’t until I made adedicated effort to make subscribing easy and obvious that the numberfinally broke the 200 barrier. After a year, it’s only taken 10 days togo from 200 to over 300 subscribers. It is very important to notethat while site traffic has grown too, it’s not at anywhere the samerate. In other words, a greater percentage of new readers are nowsubscribing to the site. Note too that there have been no traffic spikesfrom digg et al. This has been all natural The point of all this is not simple bragging. Rather I want to highlight a couple of things: the vital importance of using a traffic building worksheet or something similar so that you can test and experiment with site improvements and acurately track your results the vital importance of ongoing site tweaks the kind of effects we can bring to your site. AsI mentioned in my previous post about this, I’m only getting started. Ihave a bunch of ideas to try out, and I have the baseline metrics Ineed to measure their effectiveness. I’ll continue to share thetechniques and the results.
