What Is Your ‘SR’ (Spam Rank) ?


With all the hubub about Google’s recent PR update I thought it was a good idea to mention the real measure of how popular your blog or website is.. The way to judge how popular your blog or site is based on a real-world measurement instead of some mystial/made-up number from Google that nobody can explain or quantify. I’m talking about your SR or SPAM RANK.

When I first moved the blog from Blogger.com to WordPress and setup my Akismet Plugin I was disappointed after the first few months because it seemed like the spammers didn’t care about me or my blog – Akismet would only get 1 or 2 spam comments per week. I was really starting to feel unloved.

Now that’s all changed. Sure, Google has changed the Page Rank My Spam Rankof the blog from a PR3 to a PR4, but I don’t care about that – I care about what really matters, my SpamRank of over 20,000! Now not a day goes by that I don’t get 5-10 worthless, lame, “trying to look real” spam comments caught by Akismet every day! I’m finally someone!

What’s your Spam-Rank?

  1. I’m at 7,384. I think there’s been an influx since the recent PR update because I have over 2000 in my queue right now!

  2. I have been blogging for under a year now so my Sr is probably still pretty low. A quick check and i see “Akismet has caught 458 spam for you since you first installed it.”

    Is it possible to have spam envy?

  3. How true ! I noticed the number of pointless comments (usually written in poor English for some reason) increased significantly when my blog went from PR3 to PR4 – now it’s gone back down to PR3 the spam has dried up. I also got a couple of guys offering to pay me thousands to put an ad. on my blog ! I thought they were either nuts or criminally insane so I ignored them, although now I wonder if I did the right thing 🙁
