How to get the number of feed subscribers via Google Reader?

Problogger reveals that Google Reader Reveal Subscriber Numbers to Feeds which is a good way to monitor blog popularity. The problem is that Problogger’s howto is not a good one and hard to follow: “The subscriber numbers can be seen simply by doing a search for a blog’s name after clicking the ‘Add Subscription’ link once you’ve logged into your Google Reader account.” You don’t even need to subscribe to a site to know its subscribers. (I tried to follow Probloggers cloudy words and then Anna solved the problem at once.)

Here is how to get those numbers for a particular blog feed in 3 steps:

1. Click Browse:


2. Search for the feeds of a particular website by typing keywords


3. See the results and don’t forget, those feed readers are just the tip of the iceberg
