Metrics Systems

Having spent all weekend worried that my site was dead today I decided to check out how much I would have lost had it been gone forever by having a look at some novel webmetrics platforms (I was also using this first, more serious, option for work related purposes).

Pageboss gives you all the details on your site – link backs, google page rating, when the google bot last scanned your page, number of times your site is linked to or bookmarked in popular platforms, and a host of other useful stuff.


Stimator calculates the dollar value of your site based on a logarithmic assessment of a number of factors. Lucky I didn’t lose my site, it’s worth about $US550 compared to Googles $US938,550,265 – I can’t even begin to try expressing that as a percentage… here’s the valuation of my site:


The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.
