Using PageHeat to Analyse Your Website
When you run a website, it can be easy to get a little bit obsessed with the stats relating to it. In the early days of posting a new blog post, you probably can’t help refreshing the stats at least every two minutes for a while afterwards to see if your tweets about it or links to it are doing their job. If you think you have a spot of web related obsessive compulsive disorder, or want to analyse how well your site is doing for more sensible and professional reasons, your PageHeat ranking is another thing you can check and try to improve.
What is PageHeat?
PageHeat tracks and ranks millions of sites from all over the web, using things like search engine results, traffic, overall popularity, and many other factors to determine its results. Its exact algorithms aren’t publicly known, but it uses data about sites from a lot of sources to come up with a rating on a 0-10 scale, with 10 being the most popular and effective of sites. A rating of zero generally doesn’t mean that your site is awful and everyone hates it, but rather that it isn’t on PageHeat’s index yet.
Why Should I Care What PageHeat Thinks?
PageHeat can be a good guide to how well your SEO strategy (if you have one, and you know you should) is working. On its own, it isn’t the ideal thing to base your view of your site’s success on, but it is definitely worth checking your PageHeat ranking as part of any overall SEO analysis you are doing on your site. It can also be enlightening to see a different and new statistic if you do most of your analysis using Google stats.
