Here’s a couple of ways to check out various blog metrics:

Alexa
does reach, traffic rankings, page views.

I like the Blog Smackdown feature: You can also compare two blogs to see which one gets more traffic.

SiteMeter
Analyzes traffic
http://www.sitemeter.com

Breaks traffic down into various components: By Details, Referrals, World Map, Location, Out Clicks, Entry Pages, Exit Pages.

Blog Media Tools:

BlogTalkRadio

Turn your blog into a live radio show

Blog Printing

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Alexa’s traffic measuring methodology is, to say the least, questionable. Their “Alexa Toolbar” is the prime tool for gathering information. How many readers here use that toolbar?

    BR, thanks for the information but I don’t think my website/blog will ever make the big time. I blog for the enjoyment of sharing financial information I find with my friends and relatives. If it helps them, all the better. Big blogs like yours are a different animal they are a wonderful source of information and opinion. I read your blog everyday, please don’t stop.
