pagerank 10 and stat counter

If you’re familiar with Google’s PageRank, you know that a PageRank of 10 is the ultimate accomplishment for a web site. Here is a list of sites with a Pagerank of 10 to fuel your aspirations.

Incidentally, I saw StatCounter in the list and looked at their service to see why it was so popular. They offer free stats with invisible counters and a relatively complete selection of statistics with nice-looking graphs and charts.

They’re worth taking a look at, especially since they show you user paths through your site and keywords from search engines (two stats that you have to pay for using Sitemeter).

  1. Hey, thanks for the tip on StatCounter.

    And of course it’s PR that fuels comment spam on blogs. Bah.

  2. Nice post. I had never heard of Page Rank 10 before. It’s good to know what I have to shoot for (grin). So I assume you’re paying for what sitemeter can offer? I’m getting just the unpaid rate offerings (sigh).

  3. Meredith: True, but just because something good is used for evil doesn’t make it evil. It’s the cursed spammers that are evil.

    danithew: I just use the free sitemeter service. I use AWStats on my server, but sitemeter (and now StatCounter) offer some things that AWStats didn’t.

  4. By the way if you use Firefox, there’s a PageRank extension that will show the PageRank of the page you’re on.

  7. Mine goes to 11. You see, that’s one better.

    Why is Elsevier a 10? Who the hack are they and how much did they pay google for the choice ranking?

  8. @steven: what do you mean you went to 11? Are you saying that your site has a PageRank of 11? That is TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE!!

    @danithew: Yea… shoot for the 10 and you might land somewhere near PR5-PR6 because PR 7 and above is for sites with numberous Backlinks (over 100,000 backlinks)
