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 of 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?
