How Popular is Your Blog?

Make Money Online - How Popular is Your Blog? And How Much is it Worth?

If you want to make money online blogging you may have wondered how popular your blog is compared to everybody else? Well, I've just come across a very interesting site which lets you know how popular (or not) your blog or website is. The site is called DNScoop and it tells you all you'd maybe rather not know about the popularity or otherwise of your blog. Can you handle the truth ? If not then I advise you not to look!

It's very easy to use, you just go to DNScoop and type the URL of your site into the little window and a few seconds later you will see all the gory details revealed. You can also type in the URLs of other people's blogs to see how they rank in the popularity stakes.

For example which is more popular - Problogger.net, DoshDosh.com, JohnChow.com, Engadget.com or BoingBoing.net ? Well according to DNScoop :

  • Problogger is a PR6 with 755,386 links to it, an Alexa ranking of 15,888 (low numbers are better than high numbers), it gets between 500 and 60,000 visits a day (quite a wide margin of error there!) a single link is worth $29 a month and the estimated value of the whole kaboodle is $4,184,850
  • JohnChow is a PR4 with 228,534 links to it, an Alexa ranking of 44,140 (low numbers are better than high numbers), it also gets between 500 and 60,000 visits a day a single link is worth $29 a month but the estimated value of the whole kaboodle is $223,040
  • DoshDosh is a PR6 with 1,104,972 links to it, an Alexa ranking of 15,888 (low numbers are better than high numbers), it also gets between 500 and 60,000 visits a day a single link is only worth $19 a month and the estimated value of the whole kaboodle is $2,175,120
  • Engadget is a PR8 with 12,662,445 links to it, an Alexa ranking of 408 (low numbers are better than high numbers), it gets between the low thousands and 100,000 visits a day they can't generate the link value for the site and the estimated value of the whole kaboodle is $21,523,200
  • BoingBoing is a PR7 with 4,652,899 links to it, an Alexa ranking of 2,552 (low numbers are better than high numbers), it gets between 500 and 100,000 visits a day, a single link is worth a massive $491 a month and the estimated value of the whole kaboodle is $14,228,400

So there you have it. How do you stack up against the big boys ? If you're anything like me you'll be about ready to pack in trying to make money online and get a proper job! Tips for getting a higher ranking? I'm told it's all about backlinks.
