I just found out Ariejan.net has a PageRank™ of 3! If you don’t know what PageRank™ means, let Google explain:
PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page's value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves "important" weigh more heavily and help to make other pages "important". - source
To make a long story short, Ariejan.net is getting a lot of attention from around the web. Personally I think of it as a sign of appreciation for my articles. I’m also quite impressed with the number of page views my site is getting. Page views average out to 19k a month over 2008. Thanks all!
I found out about all this because I updated my listing at BuySellAds.com. I suggest you check them out some time.
