Popdex : the website popularity index

Popdex is described as “the Website popularity index” and has been developed by Shanti Braford, a programmer who graduated from Washington University in St Louis.

Shanti is keen to develop Popdex still further to find out if a sites popularity can shoot to the top of the list if little known sites are linked to it, or can the ranking be measured in terms of the importance of the sites that are linking to it. I have to assume here that ‘importance’ would mean a site with x number of hits per day or whatever or with x number of sites linking to it.

Interesting concept.
