Google Reader was seeing upwards of 267 percent year-over-year growth in traffic to now a 27 percent year-over-year decline. Perhaps RSS readers are on the decline, but it’s because syndicated content is becoming more popular, and is therefore available through many means beyond just a feed reader. Such as email, Twitter, Facebook, the Tumblr Dashboard, etc.
