Google Reader Shows Dominance

As I run through my feeds in Google Reader today, I find that my prediction from my last post rings true (well, close enough) for more than just my own blog. Every post I've read today that mentions new subscriber numbers from Google Reader show huge increases. Here is a quick rundown:

Parent Hacks - 60%
EricDaugherty.com - 43%
John Battelle's Searchblog - 42%
CrazyBob.org - 34%
AllThingsFinancial - 33%
Tim Bray - ~30%

I'm sure the blogs with the biggest jumps are more prone to report this news, but if this is representative of the average blog, Google Reader looks to own at least 30% of the feed reader market.

Not every one of Google's new products is a hit, but I think it is safe to say Google Reader is well on its way. I'm certainly a fan.

  2. In the last couple day's I've seen a couple more that have all had at least 30% Google Reader, and sometimes much more, like Freakonomics.
