My Thoughts on Izea Ranks

There's a new blog ranking system that's called Izea Ranks. For those of you who are not familiar with it, Izea Ranks measures blog rankings based on real data. This ensures a fair measure of blog traffic and those blogs that make a difference on the web. Izea Ranks also ranks blogs that are out there in the blogosphere through actual site statistics, not an estimate that is based on a formula that you can't understand.

When you register for Izea Ranks, there is a code that you need to install into the HTML script of your blog. After which, in about 24 hours or so, you will already be able to see the ranking of your blog and how it fares out with the thousands of other blogs all over the world. This free service is also beneficial to bloggers who participate in sponsored posts, as it gives advertisers data to analyze the blogs that they will be choosing for sponsored posts. Izea Ranks collects data directly from the source (the blog) and it reveals this data in the form of a score that is made public. 70% of the score is from unique visitors, 20% from active inbound links, and 10% from daily page views. And if I'm not mistaken, this is the first ranking service that is focused on measuring the traffic and influence of individual blogs.

Ever since one of my blogs lost it's Google PR after I made several sponsored posts, I honestly felt sad, as though my months of hard work simply went down the drain. But when Izea Real Rank came out and I saw that my blog was not the loser I thought it was, I was a bit happy and motivated once again to blog. You can see from my archives on how frequently I blogged before compared to now. But I plan on changing everything so that I'll get a higher Izea Rank in the coming months. Wish me luck!
