What’s Your Blog Juice?

Posted by: of Online Marketing Blog on 10/12/06

A bit of ripe linkbait has been launched by Text Link Ads in the form of a “Blog Juice Calculator“. The tool takes into account 4 metrics when calculating a blog’s popularity: RSS subscribers (Bloglines only), Alexa traffic ranking, Technorati rank, and incoming links

Here’s how the BBC group fared:

http://bloombergmarketing.blogs.com/ 6.3
http://www.bourland.com/ 1.3
http://www.flyteblog.com/ 3.8
http://radiantmarketinggroup.com/ 0.9
http://falkow.blogsite.com/ 2.4
http://www.businessblogconsulting.com 6.1
http://www.pheedo.info/ 3.1
http://hyku.com/ 2.1
http://blog.larixconsulting.com/blog 2.8
http://www.toprankblog.com 7.1
http://www.stephanspencer.com/ 5.8
http://www.intuitive.com/blog/ 6.6
http://www.onebyonemedia.com/ 2.4
http://www.danavan.net/weblog/ 4.3
http://www.thinkinghomebusiness.com/blog 3.1
http://www.debbieweil.com/ 3.2
http://blogwrite.blogs.com/ 1.6
http://ensight.org/ 4.1

Is a tool like this useful? Even though mine did well, I’m not sure yet. I was expecting higher scores for BBC contributors all around.  TLA uses this kind of data to determine how much a link is worth on a web site or blog, so I guess in some ways it might be. I’m just not 100% convinved yet.

  1. Cool, eh? Of course if you punch in my URL in without the /blog … I get a respectable 5.2 ;-).

  2. It really isn’t very useful and it’s worth pointing out that the main reason that TLA built this calculator was so it could use it as the basis of their upcoming ReviewMe paid blog post system.

    There’s a fundamental flaw in all of this anyway: it’s built upon the assumption that the most influential blog has the most readers and/or the greatest number of other bloggers linking to it. But is that really true? Hmmm…..

  3. Dave I agree with you on the influence part and raising an eyebrow about TLA’s motivations, but it could be used as a benchmark of sorts.

    Of course none of the measures move very fast, which lessens the value.

  4. There’s no doubt the TLA Blog Juice tool a promotional tool and also that it is borrowing some ideas from the SEOMoz Page Strenth tool: http://www.seomoz.org/tools/page-strength.php

    Try that tool and see how you do.

  5. My blog is juice free, I found it to be more organic.

  6. Like Tris, I get a somewhat better number with http://www.thinkinghomebusiness.com, i.e. without the /blog on my url, but the SEOMoz tool is more kind again, so of course I prefer it. Thanks Lee! 🙂
