Results of switching to static RSS feed

daily_usage_200305.png

Here’s the daily usage graph for MacMegasite. Note the dramatic shift on the day I switched to static RSS. More visits with much less data transferred. Each time a user requested backend.php the entire feed was returned, whether or not it changed since their last request. I’m now seeing a majority of 304s (content unchanged) for index.rss in the last visitors stat page.
