I posted recently about some problems with Feedburner and stats from Google Reader. While information from the Feedburner side suggested that these problems were intermittently experienced (an issue with Google's feed fetcher's reporting of subscribers), the problem may run deeper. A reader of this blog says:
I am a subscriber to your feed through google reader, and I have actually not been getting updates made to your feed up until today (so all of a sudden I had precisely 10 unread updates) -- then I read your post about the google stats for feedburner, so I think maybe the two are related.
Today I see a drop of over 1, 000 readers from my normal count of Google subscribers. A little while after Google reader launched, some improvements to the system garnered considerable positive commentary. I wonder if the system is having scalability issues (not in the number of readers, but in the number of feeds perhaps).
If anyone else is having problems with reading in Google reader, please leave a comment - if you can read this, that is!
