Podcast Subscriber Tracking with Perl

Wednesday 18 February 2009 - Filed under Default

If you have a podcast, you probably provide an RSS or XML file for people to subscribe to. If you’re interested in tracking how many people are subscribing to your feed and you’re running Apache, I’ve just developed a simple script that counts repeat downloaders of the feed. I look for .rss in the URL but you can easily change that to .xml or whatever matches your feed.

You can download the script at

Thanks and leave any questions or suggestions in the comments.
