New functionality released on clikfind: PageRank™, Alexa Ranking and more…

We’ve just completed some cool new functionality for our clickfind users who have a monthly subscription. (Well we think it’s cool anyway, and so should you 😉

We’ve added a page (called explore website) that drills down further into the client’s website (if they have one). The page displays PageRank™, Alexa Ranking, whether it’s valid HTML, a thumbnail of the websites front-page, and if you came to the business listing by keywords, it will carry those through and perform an external search on the business’ website and display the matching pages. How’s that for useful information?!

All users will also have access to this information; however, the information is only available for their front-page. We are making more information available for the rest of the site to contributors of clickfind, users with an average quality score over 7% (people get a score on how their listings are written), users who refer people to clickfind from “My account” and users who publish the extra marketing material also available from “My account. This functionality can not be purchased; we will still keep our one and only low monthly fee of $19.95 a month.

Anyone who gains access to the additional functionality will be able to validate most of their web pages, see how many pages link to them, access other similar websites, the PageRank™ for other pages in their site and much more exciting stuff…

Following is an excerpt from the horses mouth on PageRank™ in layman terms

  PageRank Explained

  PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page’s value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at considerably more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; for example, it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves “important” weigh more heavily and help to make other pages “important.” Using these and other factors, Google provides its views on pages’ relative importance.

  Of course, important pages mean nothing to you if they don’t match your query. So, Google combines PageRank with sophisticated text-matching techniques to find pages that are both important and relevant to your search. Google goes far beyond the number of times a term appears on a page and examines dozens of aspects of the page’s content (and the content of the pages linking to it) to determine if it’s a good match for your query.

We are sure all this additional functionality will help every business to plan better SEO campaigns, give outside users more confidence in whom they are dealing with, and allow developers from our developers directory to assist our users better.

The name PageRank is a trademark of Google
