Yuvi Analyzes Scoble’s Links

Portrait of Robert ScobleStatBot: Analyzing Scobleizer.com – Part 1 Link Analysis � YuviSense: Kid in Tech Yuvi, a self proclaimed 15 year old Geek wannabe from Chennai, India, is tearing apart Scoble’s blog and providing an amazingly indepth analysis of Scoble’s behavior. Think of his analysis as Google Analytics and then some, but with commentary.

Interesting that thomashawk.com is the 21st most linked to site by Scoble. Makes sense because we are friends and especially since we do the photowalking thing together.

Scoble links to a lot of sites. Dave Winer (his best friend) is the blogger he links to the most (he’s linked to Dave 52 times). The top overall site he’s linked to though is flickr, mostly to his own photostream.

This kind of analysis and commentary is great Yuvi and it’s very interesting. Are you going to be offering a stats package for bloggers to purchase? I wonder if there is a way that you could do the analysis you just did on Scoble with outbound links with inbound links instead. I know I would love, for instance, to see a rank of all of the sites that have linked to thomashawk.com by number of incoming links.

One thing that is for sure is that geeks and bloggers sure seem to be interested in statistics about their blogs. I check my sitemeter and Google Analytics accounts every day.

One of the things we are working on with Zooomr right now is to provide a comprehensive stats package for photographers on their photostreams. As far as I know we are the only photo sharing site with trackbacks right now, but we need so much more. As a photographer I’d want a sitemeter or Google Analytics type stats package for my photostream, or even better, the type of analysis that Yuri is doing. This is something that we hope to roll out for our photographers in the future.

Oh, by the way, how did I find Yuvi’s post? Well I saw him blogged by Robert on his own blog a few days back, but what got me to click through was the fact that I saw he linked to thomashawk.com on Technorati, yep, yet another stats service for bloggers.

    I have to say, Zooomr’s trackbacks is one of those really nice features I wouldn’t want to have to do without on my photos – it’s really quite interesting to see where somebody came from when they found your photo, particularly some of the Google queries.

    More stats is always nice, but the main thing I’d love to see for Zooomr’s trackbacks is for it to appear on the ‘Recent Activity’ timeline, or just for some easy way to identify which photo it was that caused my ‘trackbacks’ count to go up, without clicking through them all.

    Hi Thomas, as far as I know BlogPulse.com was offering similar in-depth details about one’s blog, for free. For what is worth though I haven’t checked it for more than 6 months or so.

    Ben stay tuned for more stats stuff with Mark III. Trackbacks are only the beginning.

    Sounds good Thomas – looking forward to all that lies in store for us with Mark III 🙂
