All Bloggers and Webmasters cant help themselves and have to keep an eye on there blog or website Page Rank, Alexa Rank, Number of Back links and of course the hit counters to see how many visitors they are getting.The slightest decrease in any stats can cause a panic in any site owner.Now to cause even more panic there is a number of websites that put all that information together and magically calculate the worth or value of your website or blog.
This is a fun post but is also a great way to be introduced to a number of statistics that are used in calculating the importance of your blog in the eyes of search engines and other ranking systems.If your blog is new don’t worry about the stats but it’s good to know what you can look for in the future.
What are the stats used to calculate the value of a Blog or Website ?
These are some of the stats used
Page Rank (PR) – Page Rank is a used by Google to determine the importance of a website.Page Rank goes from one to ten with ten being the highest ranking.I covered Page Rank in a post about Using Do-Follow blogs and it’s quiet complected.
Alexa Rank – Alexa uses it’s toolbar to rank sites although i have seen information suggesting they also use other sources.The Alexa rank and the format they use to generate their stats can be controversial with some people dismissing the accuracy of the results.
Backlinks – Back links are links from other sites on the web to your blog.We also looked into the value of back links in dept in the Do-Follow post.
Daily Visitors – The amount of people that visit the site every day.You can keep track of the visitors to your blog with a ‘Hit’ or ‘Stat’ counter.I have ‘Ten Free Hit Counters For Your Blog Here‘.
Daily Page Views – The amount of page views generated by the visitors.If you get 100 visitors and they all look at 2 posts in your blog then you got 200 page views.This information would be available with the hit counters mentioned above.
The Other Stats
Daily Ad Revenue – Estimated money earned by the site every day.They look at the stats and figure out how much each site is earning.
