Good RSS feed users

Writing about web page http://www.rss4lib.com/2007/07/rss_focuses_site_readership.html

By using my Bloglines account to read RSS feeds of interest to me, I found this blog posting about a report on the impact of RSS feeds on visits to websites. I find it interesting that someone thought this worth measuring. When I read RSS feeds in Bloglines, I’m not actually visiting the site from which they came. Most of the time I just read the entry in Bloglines itself without ever visiting the site itself. So, presumably RSS feeds ought really to be reducing the number of visits to a web page even whilst the content reaches a desired audience? Or does my access through Blogline get counted? I don’t really understand how RSS works nor, how the statistics of web page accesses are counted. The report itself discusses the results, but not the methods used.
