Here’s a couple of ways to check out various blog metrics:
does reach, traffic rankings, page views.
I like the Blog Smackdown feature: You can also compare two blogs to see which one gets more traffic.
Breaks traffic down into various components: By Details, Referrals, World Map, Location, Out Clicks, Entry Pages, Exit Pages.
Blog Media Tools:
Turn your blog into a live radio show
Turn your blog into a printed book
Some fun blog stuff:
What’s your blog worth
Business Opportunities Weblog
The fantasy blog stock market
Truth Laid Bear
Relative Traffic Ranking of the top 5000 blogs
(But It was more valuable before people started gaming the system)
If you know of any other worthwhile blog tools/measures, please use the comments, and we will add to the overall list as it develops . . .
