Find Feedburner Subscriber Count of Any Site

Most of you must be aware of the feedcount feature of FeedBurner which lets you view the rss subscriber count of blogs or sites.

Some sites display their subscriber numbers whereas some don't. You may still be able to see the subscriber count of sites that do not display their numbers, using the following trick which I use a lot.
Note: This will only work if the FeedCount feature for the blog is activated in FeedBurner (And it is disabled for Tech Xpress).

First of all, get the Feedburner subscription link of the blog.
Let us assume the link is http://feeds.feedburner.com/YourBlog
Now modify the link so that it looks like (just add ~fc in the url)
http://feeds.feedburner.com/~fc/YourBlog

The modified link should display the number or subscribers.
However, if you still don't want to show your subscriber count:
Login to your FeedBurner account.
Go to Publicize >> FeedCount and click on Deactivate.
