A well-optimized and reliable plugin that connects to the FeedBurner Awareness API to retrieve your readers count, that you can print out in plain text.


  • Easy installation and setup
  • Use <?php echo fbc_count() ?> to output the count. No unneeded options, no extra markup, place it wherever you want.
  • If feed count cannot be retrieved, you can choose to display a custom ‘N/A’ text or keep the last retrieved count.
  • Performance optimized for retrieval and parsing of the result.
  • Average count calculation between dates. Since FeedBurner produces different readers count for each day, you can display to your users an average of, for example, the last 30 days.


  1. Make sure the Awareness API is enabled in your FeedBurner account settings (in the Publicize section)
  2. Upload feedburnercount.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
  4. Adjust its settings according to your preferences under Settings
  5. Place <?php echo fbc_count() ?> to print out the readers count in your templates
