Bloggers rely on FeedBurner to announce new posts to their subscribers via email, Twitter, Google Reader and various other types of feed readers. Google released a beta version of FeedBurner which incorporates real-time stats and Twitter traffic to your blogs. Here's an excerpt of the announcement from Google:
Good news! Today, we will be rolling out a new, experimental interface for Google FeedBurner. The real story is what’s new under the hood, however: the new interface provides real time stats for clicks, views, and podcast downloads, which means you can start seeing what content is drawing traffic from feed readers, Twitter, and other syndicated sources as it happens.
FeedBurner Beta Video Preview
I recorded this video, so you can preview the new FeedBurner Beta interface and stats tracking. You'll also learn how to enable FeedBurner to your Google Analytics account.
Configure FeedBurner to send out a Tweet each time hit the publish button and with real-time stats you can see how many of your Twitter followers visit your blog. Now the good thing is that we don't have to wait. This will allow us test the effectiveness of our blog titles and what kind of influence they have on getting our Twitter followers to visit our blogs.
