There are many tips that give us info about increasing the number of subscribers, but most of them are for intermediate bloggers. In this section, I will give you my tips to increase the number of subscribers (just for beginner). So, let's begin!
1. Don't show your feedcount
If you run a new blog, then this prohibited because of your number of subscribers. People don't subscribe for a blog that doesn't have many subscribers . This is closely related to the first reason why subscribers are important. Don't show your feedcount until you reached 100 subscribers.
