Google Reader new feature: RSS Subscriptions trends

To manage my RSS feeds subscription I use Google Reader and as you might know, it’s quite a great tool.

Very recently Google has included a new feature in Google Reader: personalized trends for your subscriptions and read items. Check if you have access to it on your Google Reader homepage:

I’m a big fan of this kind of information about the usage of a particular tool. I hope you too find it great.

The Trends page is useful for a lot of things, especially if you like to keep track of where you do the majority of your reading (it’s sort of like for your RSS feeds). If you use Google Reader to increase your productivity (and isn’t that the point?), Reader’s Trends can help you decide which feeds have a high signal-to-noise ratio based on how much of the feeds content you actually read. For example, if your subscription trends show a frequently updated feed that you regularly read less than 5% of… it may be time to prune that feed. Luckily, you can delete any feed from the comfort of the Trends page.
