Old Indirank Vs New Indirank - Which One Do you Like??
This new Indirank seems to kind of irk me and does not motivate or excite me as much as the old one did.
When everyone (well almost) gets in the 80's, then the prestige or the joy associated is not that much. In the previous avataar even getting in the 70's was a big achievement.
Going through the Indirank thread, no one these days seems to drop, which is good but... well, not that good!!!
I would love the Indirank to go back to its previous image, that was so unpredictable and also much better than the current version!!
What do others feel? Which one is better, Old Indirank Vs New Indirank??
If most of us feel the same as me, then we can request Renie to change it to its old version!!
I like this one (for now). Can we wait for a few months before going back? ( I got no Google pagerank for my blog right now )
Where else but in Roorkee.
I log in regularly, atlaest once every two days but I haven't made any replies, thanks to the slowest connection that I have ever worked on... And also, I though that I had other important things to be done. But now I wonder what those things were and if I have done anything that important.
Yeah!! You here after a long long break!!
Thats what I feel! Are the first sem results out?
Yes. Managed to get a CGPA of 8.95. It would have been much better had I got similar marks in mid terms as I have in the final end term exam. Trying for a better CG this time....
Erm. I got my PR. all willing to go to the old era of challenging Indiranks
Need to accept with you. After all, what we need is a number to look at and smile....
I never knew the old version.
So, I can't actually say anything about this topic.
But I can say this. I didn't join INDIBLOGGER to get my blog rated, my main intention was to find other writers and get inspired. It also helped me to improve my English and I got good readers.
So I don't mind how INDIRANK is given as long as there are people who would be willing to point out my mistakes and help me to improve.
Glad to know that you weren't a victim of heart breaks arising out of unpredictable ranks....
If your question is about the version which I would like to see, then my answer would be the version which would rate not just SEO and traffic but something that would be capable of rating our content and talent too, but there there doesn't seem to anythink as such on the offer by any of those ranking systems out there, either the new opne or the old one would mena the same to me. But as you and Arti have pointed out, the unpredictability of the previous ranks is what everyone generally enjoy, even if the rank dips a lot.
I am not sure why page rank is not considered for IndiRank now. There must be some genuine reason.
Yeah, this is true that IndiRanks have jumped a lot after the new algorithm but I have also seen it going down in a lot of scenarios and that too, for good and reputed bloggers. No idea, has it to do with the pagerank or any other algorithm change. Would like to comment only after it is clear.
Now personally, I see issues with both these algorithms. The IndiRank algorithm considers only count of posts and hence, it is very easy to fool it. Any average blogger (pardon me for my words, but there are below average bloggers as well when it comes to quality) can get a very high IndiRank just by posting two meaningless posts daily. On the other hand, a really talented blogger may be at a bottom place because it really needs time to write a quality blogpost. But again, this is the difference between a human and a machine. There still are things which machines cannot do and this is a perfect example of it. Now how do you define quality? And even more difficult, how do you make an algorithm understand this? Number of comments... no crieria! Count of words... no criteria!! Choice of topic... no criteria!!! Then what is the criteria?
pahle hi 75 pe the hum, ab to 50 60, yehi iska domain hai
I also liked the older rank. It was almost impossible for me to cross 80 but now I have crossed 80 but so have almost everyone else. I think Moz rank depends on how many comments you leave on other blogs etc. I don't feel like visitng lot of blogs and leaving junk comments to improve my Moz rank. I am thinking of forgetting ranks, SEO and just keep writing for some time and then think of a new self owned blog and from there build fresh.
I think that moz rank is similar to PR but with a greater precision.
I feel happy if I get good rank, doesn't care much if I don't get!
But more importantly, improved the writing these days, diverse topics and very focussed, so getting more matured and rare readers, this makes me happiest than any other thing!
I feel like No. 1 rank when the right message is reached to right person, especially in case of poems!
