Do you count your readership as:

* unique readers
* unique readers who are return visitors
* unique readers that visit each update
* something else?

I know there's a difference between readers and fans, but that is so subjective that I'm not considering it right now.

Just curious.

Comicrank.
It's the only non-mind-numbing way I can even consider it right now.

Interesting, huh?

Comicrank as well, because it's usually a blend of all my other stat following devices.

Though honestly, I tend to associate people who comment with my reader count - which is kinda funny b/c let's face it, only a fraction of people reading comment. XD

Am doing long form, thus, returning readers per update works best for me...

Comicrank, though I'm beginning to wonder how that thing really works and question its methods... It seems to have periods when it reports my readership skyrocketing, and then plummeting a week or so later. Still, overall it's probably the best estimating tool I've got.

Yeah, over the last day Comicrank has shown my readership dropping by around 10%. Um... how? It's a fun tool, but I think it may still have a few bugs here and there.

The confusing thing about Comicrank is how and when its stats fluctuate. But it's still pretty accurate put up against my other stats and considering my update methods.

I wish I were like Wolfus, but I do!

(ROFL @Tpiro!)

In my mind, I go by "average unique visitors per day" on SiteMeter.

Same as OnyxSparrow- I talked to him. He's actually pretty cool Smile

Seriously, I used to use PW and now I'll just have to go by Google Analytics. It's all so relative anyhow...

I can measure my readership on the fingers of one head.
