Was cleaning out some old bookmarks last night and ran across Nirmal T V’s post about popuri.us. Seems someone was trying to tell me something because I had recently run seen popuri.us at Diary of My Life and Untwisted Vortex.
What is popuri.us? It’s a single site where you can check a number of your blog’s rankings and popularity stats, including:
- Google Pagerank – Google Pagerank and the Prediction Tool
- Alexa Rank
- Compete Rank
- Quantcast Rank
- Google Backlinks
- Yahoo! Backlinks
- Live Search Backlinks
- Technorati inbound links
- del.icio.us bookmarks
- Bloglines subscribers
I used it and it ranked everything accurately as I know it. If nothing else, I got a bunch of information about the popularity of my blog with a simple click. Not bad. Useful to some degree.
What might be more useful is the popuri.us widget that can display live stats on your blog. I’m probably not going to use it just because I don’t want to add any clutter to my blog. But it could useful for others.
