Blog Perfume has put together an interesting blog tool that is designed to analyze the data that Feedburner provides publishers and to put it into a more useful (and pretty) format.
To use it you need to log into Feedburner – download your blog’s CSV file and then upload it to Blog Perfume. Once you’ve done this it will spit out some graphs and charts for you as follows (the following graphs are for ProBlogger):
First there’s the graph for subscriber numbers per month:
If you hover your cursor over any column it’ll show you the total for the month over the orange part of the chart and show you how many subscribers have been added in the month if you hover over the yellow part of the chart.
Note: the last month is obviously wrong – perhaps some sort of glitch because I’ve not seen a doubling of my stats in November!
Next is a daily tracking of subscriber numbers, hits, views and clicks.
Again – hovering over parts of the chart will give you the exact figures. Here’s how that looks:
Lastly there’s a chart looking at the days of the week and what percentage of the average subscribers totals are for each day of the week (fairly even for me – but Wednesdays are the best and Saturdays are worst).

I think that it’s a tool that has potential and something that I’d been doing manually using an excel export of my feedburner stats for a while now (although not as comprehensive as this). I’d been using the export to do some analysis of the average increases to my feed each month. Seeing the subscriber numbers, hits, visitors and clicks all on the one chart is very useful – that you can narrow it down to days is very useful as it enables you to look back on your blog to see what was happening to see why you have peaks and troughs.
By the looks of the tool the developers are planning on expanding and developing it as they’ve purposely titled it as v1.0. How would you improve it?
