Well we have all heard about egoistic people and probably hate such people, but have you heard of egoistic websites?
Yes I am talking about websites that have some ego.
Ok now I know its kind of getting buggy but I just happened to find this cool site that lets you know how much ego your website has, but here the catch, its good to have ego for your website, super cool infact.
The site I am talking about is EgoSurf . EgoSurf is a Web 2.0 based site that helps you find your blogs ranking in most of the popular search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN and also Del.icio.us and Technorati.
Not only do they find your rankings but also keeps track of those over time to see how your blogs move through the blogoshpere.
Well its pretty simple to use egoSurf, all you need to do is go to egosurf.org and enter a search phrase and your blog url and select the site you want to get your blog ego checked on, egoSurf will start looking for the amount of results it gets depending on those criterias.
You can search multiple search engines at once and also provide multiple urls seperated by a comma (keithdsouza.com, google.com). They have a funny way of ranking searches like PROSAIC, DEADBEAT, COMMON, FLUNKEY, WRECK, UNMEMORABLE, TYPICAL, WASTER, LOSER and lots more. My search said that I am a PROSAIC, don't ask me what that means I am still trying to figure that out.
Here is what they have to say on their site regarding egoSurf:
"Why do I need to egoSurf ?
egoSurf helps massage the web publishers ego, and thereby maintain the cool equilibrium of the net itself.
We, the publishers of this here internet thing, need the occasional massage, the odd stroke. We aren't paid. We aren't recognised. Our sites hit count used to be enough, but no longer."
For each positive results you get you are awarded ego points, here is what they have to say about ego points.
"What are ego points ?
A highly secretive and complex algorithm developed over months of work, utilising the best mathematics brains in Weston-super-Mare, to calculate the cubic volume (in cm3) of ego contained in your search engine experience.
Don't ask – would you have asked Larry and Sergey about pagerank?"
How do they do this search, well they are making use for patent pending search technology called deepthroat™, which makes you do a deep search.
"What is a deep search?
Using our patent pending deepthroat™ search technology, we seek deeper than most. Using one degree of separation, we look at each page retrieved by the search engines, and seek out links to your sites.
This deep searching routes out even the most obscure references. Our finely tuned egopoints algorithm is then applied to the search result."
I did a egoSurf what about you, I hope you update me with your websites ego quotient.
