The FeedBurner subscription count on my blog varies between 500-3500/day (?). TypePad and Google tell me several hundred to thousand/day land here via search, direct visits or social media. Stats are nice but wonder how many of those numbers are real vs “search bots”, and the like, so thought it worth testing.
The test: NOW CLOSED – The results are HERE If you’re reading this, are human and can send an email:
Subject: I’m human
Body: 10c for Kiva
I’ll add nz $0.10 for every email received to the RobiNZ Blog Kiva fund. It may validate those stats, see how people read this and will be loaned, via Kiva, to help others.
UPDATE 2010-06-26: Thanks all who participated. Will post the results in the next day or so, once have allocated the funds, in a new post and update this one
UPDATE 2010-06-27: See the results here
- I’ll only count one email/sender address
- This is limited to nz$350.00 max (per the 3,500 FeedBurner subscriptions)
- it will close 24 hours after this post is published which is 2010-06-23 22:18 (NZ Local)
- UPDATE 2010-06-23 23:20: I must add this isn’t a scammy way to build an email contact list. All emails will be deleted on the day following the closure and no addresses will be retained, reused, or sold
