As I have surfed the Internet the last few weeks I have seen many people writing about the new real rank and how it means nothing because it’s only for blogs. Well here is my opinion and if you don’t like it. I don’t care. Real Rank is just for blogs, so when you are comparing blogs it works. It’s real data from the blog you are looking at, not just some websites opinion of your blog or how many links you have coming in. It takes in to account traffic, used links and more.
Many people are still stuck on page rank. In fact I have had 2 people leave comments on this blog about how they will link to me to help with my page rank. I politely thanked them and told them I had been slapped by google and would not be getting my rank back. This blog gets around 100-150 visits a day, not bad, not great, but I think it’s a good amount. Another blog I have gets between 5-25 visits a day and it’s a pr 3.
What does that mean? Well that I have managed to get about 5 sites that are pr 3 or up to link to me. I don’t have many links to that blog and no one reads it so how is it worth anything? Just my opinion. Real Rank on the other hand will show how many people will actually see your product, link, review. The more people to see it, the more people likely to click that link to find out more.
I love real rank, and I will be using it to decide where I want to advertise my forum. I don’t care about page rank I want people to visit my site, not just have a static unused link to it.
