In today’s ScrivsTyme my entry on TechCrunch and Basecamp were discussed a bit and the question arose of why we haven’t seen any FeedBurner alternatives yet. Let’s face it, some of us feel more secure about our data when we get to host it so why isn’t there a hosted FeedBurner alternative? I believe Mint has a plugin that track RSS readers, but no matter what I do Mint kills my database.
So is anyone aware of a FeedBurner alternative that accurately tracks your RSS stats? If there isn’t one why do you think no one has taken the plunge to create one yet? With today’s technology you would think something could be whipped up fairly quickly, at least on the backend, but maybe its just not a viable thing to do programatically for some reason.
If you know something please help me out.
