After the infamous Google Smackdown the web (well, us bloggers) were antsy for something that would actually reflect visitors and in-bound links instead of some weird Google algorithm that made no sense. But, the folks at Izea have jumped on their proverbial white horses and come to save the world (er, us bloggers) from teh evil Google! (or something like that).
Basically, if you hit up IzeaRanks.com you can check out thousands of blogs’ REAL ranks. You can easily add your blog to the ranking system by signing up for a (free) account and adding the code to your site. The blogs are ranked based on 70% on daily unique visitors, 20% by daily active inbound links and 10% by daily page views.
Now, here’s another bit o’fun! Now, you can display your Real Rank on your website! Thanks to Russ over at Dew Knight we now have a cute little button to place on our blogs that displays our awesome (or not-so-awesome, ahem) ranks. Go ahead and check it out!
