Excessive Use of My Blog: Does it make me more popular on the web?
So I believe I am reaching a crazy level of number of blog posts in one
day. Well, number of significant blog posts that is - I used to post
many short, pointless ones all the time. So I believe I am reaching a
new level of craziness / devotion to my new blog.
actually made me think... if I have so much fresh content, would I
actually be getting some more love from the Internet in terms of my
blog's popularity? I ran a report on this blog using Website Grader, a
free search engine optimization measurement tool
that measures this kind of thing.*
I checked a couple of things:
- my old blog: score of 24!
I was shocked. I've had that thing for years and posted to it pretty
regularly. There must have been something messed up somewhere because
the report didn't register any Google indexed pages (how many pages
Google sees within my site). Also I had pretty much no inbound links
and my Google PageRank was 0 (on a scale of 0-10, 10 being the best).
- my friend Rachel's blog: got a whopping 67
I remember correctly. Now that's a decent grade. She had more pages
indexed by Google and also had quite a few inbound links (the primary
measure used by Google to see how important your site is on the web). I
- this blog: 30
- how funny that just after 2 days and a couple blog posts that I'm
already doing better than my old blog. Very funny. My Alexa traffic
rating was quite good (13) but I need to investigate how that's
actually calculated, because I know that I'm not the 13th most
trafficed site on the web absolutely. No inbound links or indexed
pages... I need to check if blogspot sets up separate pages for each of
my blog posts - because that is key.
Alright, I'm cutting myself off now. Definitely past my bedtime.
