Seoquake data on over 350 cricket and sports sites

Jun 5, 2008

The unexpected success of the debut season of the Indian Premier League can be attributed to a number of factors but most importantly it was proof that Indian cricket fans can be equally proud of their regional teams as they are of their national team. And of course, the reduced duration of a 20:20 match only served to rope in more and more fans. As if all this wasn’t enough, IPL 2008 climaxed with a cracker of a match with just 1 run needed to win on the last ball. All this fanfare resulted in additional traffic for both new and established cricket sites.

To get an idea about what cricket websites and blogs to visit, Seoquake (http://www.seoquake.com/) was used to get data on various sites covering sports, cricket and IPL. This raw data was then made uniform in format (values which were not available were changed to 0, while for parameters where lower is better, these were changed to the highest value available) and a composite score was calculated so as to gauge how the websites fared on a wide range of parameters.

Seoquake for Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer

Seoquake provides over 50 parameters for page strength (including Google PageRank, Alexa Rank and others) on the fly. This data can then be exported as a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file and manipulated in a spreadsheet. This makes it possible to define your own composite page strength using normalization and weightages. If needed, custom parameters can also be created, further adding to the flexibility.

Note: Frequent use of big amount of parameters may lead to the ban from search engines.
