More RSS activity on del.icio.us

Interesting tidbit the other day. According to the del.icio.us blog, there are more people accessing del.icio.us content through feeds than are visiting the site itself:

Did you know that well over half of the requests seen by del.icio.us are for RSS feeds? That means that people cruising around our site in browsers are actually in the minority, when it comes down to raw traffic. Instead, our heaviest hitters include personalized home pages, desktop news aggregators, and even stranger things.

I don’t think this is an isolated thing either. Imagine what this could mean for the local market in a couple years? What value will page views have then?
