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.
