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.
Share and Enjoy
I few months ago IZEA came out with real rank. I love this ranking system as it works much better the PR. It shows what my blog is really worth, not what google thinks. Anyone who has a blog can get a real rank at IZEARanks.com. It’s a very easy to use website with a lot of information for anyone looking to get stats for their blog.
Right now IZEARanks is giving away $1000 each week in February to the number 1 blog. So if you do get a lot of traffic you should check it out maybe you could beat out the current number one ohgizmo.com. Also if your worried about the whole google mess, the code you add to your blog for IZEARanks is different from the code for Pay Per Post. So you don’t have to worry about it.
As I said before Real Rank shows what your blog is really worth. PR only tells you how many links you have to your site and how many links those sites have to there sites and so on. Real Rank concentrates more on visitors and how you rank against other blogs. For me this is most important as I can see how well a new blog is doing compared to a blog that has been around a while. I also can improve my real rank pretty easily just by increasing my traffic, my RSS feed count and links. Yes they do count links but mostly active ones. So they have to be clicked on to count. The downside I guess.
Check it out and see what you think.
