Hello prince nuel.

Before I answer your question, here's a reminder:

You should always open a new topic when you want to ask a question which is unrelated to the present topic. For example, you asked this your question about subscribers under your other post about receiving your first cheque. You can see that the two topics are not related hence I had to split this and make it a new post.

Regarding your question, Some factors to consider:

Do you mean 700 views or visitors? If its views then the actual number of unique visitors would be much less. And many of those views/visitors that you are seeing are people who have already subscribed.

For example, if you have 350 visitors and each one looks at two pages, then the number of views will be 700 but the actual number of people is 350. And out of this 350 visitors, many of them are already subscribed.

Therefore the only people who are likely to subscribe are the new visitors which may be far less than you think. To get a better idea of where your visitors are coming from, use the stats tab in your backend (near monetize). See this link: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

All the above notwithstanding, Some ways to improve your subscribe rate is:

Make your subscribe box bolder and more prominent. Place your subscribe box repeatedly all over your website.

Another very good way is to use something like a popup like the one we use at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  so that once anybody comes to your site, they are greeted with the popup asking them to subscribe. The problem is that we don't know of any good popup scripts for blogger because all the ones we have tested are not good. We only know how to do it in Wordpress which is very easy through the use of a plugin.

We intend to include some topics about popups and how to increase subscriber rate in a future lesson. Before that time we will try to look for a good popup script for blogger but you can also research on your own by searching Google for things like popup window for blogger and see if you can find anything that works.

Thankyou so very much sir,and I am sorry for not starting up a new topic and that has also been noted.I actually meant visitors and I got the figures from the stats you recommended at my blog backend,my major challenge now is that how can I really make the subscription box bolder and even the text to be darker so that it can be very visible even subliminally.

The subscription form code is HTML. HTML was treated in Lesson 4.

You can increase the font size, include a small image and use <b></b> tag all inside the html code.

Paste the code for your subscribe box here and also the link to your website and I will try to give you a modified code to make your text bolder.

And remember to study the HTML lesson too

Try this code and see if it looks better. You can change the value 4 (in bold) to something lower or higher (between 2 and 7) to change the size of the displayed font. I also removed the Delivered by feedburner link at the bottom because it is not necessary.

You did not include your website address like I asked, if you had done so I would have been able to suggest some places where you might put the codes but try these locations:

Top and bottom of your right hand column
Bottom of your left hand column
Below the posts area, so that it shows just after each post

So here's the new code:

Quote
<form style="border:1px solid #ccc;padding:3px;text-align:center;" action="You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login" method="post" target="popupwindow" onsubmit="window.open('You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login', 'popupwindow', 'scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520');return true">

<img src="You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login" width="70px" />

<font size="4"><b>Get our Free Daily Job Alerts. Enter your email below and click Subscribe:</b></font>

<p><input type="text" style="width:140px" name="email" /></p>

<input type="hidden" value="blogspot/aUDAs" name="uri" />

<input type="hidden" name="loc" value="en_US" />

<input type="submit" value="Subscribe" /></form>
