What does my IndiRank mean?
It’s like runs in a game of cricket – the higher the score, the higher ranking you have. Blogs are ranked on a scale of 1-100.
How is IndiRank calculated?
A blog’s IndiRank is calculated based on various factors. Other blog ranking systems rate how popular a blog is. We’ve taken it a step further based on how deserving a blog is of becoming popular. This is to ensure that the lesser known, but well deserving blogs are pushed up the ladder as well. IndiRank will be completely refreshed every month, so a blog’s previous rank will have no bearing on it’s present rank.
What are the factors which affect IndiRank?
We’ve combined traditional ranking mechanisms such as a blog’s Google PageRank, Incoming links and alexa ranking (Inspired by the research done by Binaryday). The system also checks to see the frequency at which a blog is updated, and two other secret ingredients. Some of these factors have more weightage than the rest.
What are it’s limitations?
We believe that any ranking system should not be taken too seriously – and that is because no system can be accurate. IndiRank is built to rank the majority of Indian blogs as accurately as possible. However, please do take note:
- Not every blog applies to our algorithm, and a blog may get a rank it does not deserve.
- IndiRank is presently in beta, and we’ll continually tweak it based on it’s performance.
- No piece of computer code can ever judge your blog as well as your readers can – so get your blog reviewed on our forum if you haven’t done so already!
