As to your claim regarding Google using compete.com’s data in calcuating PageRank, I found no mention of compete.com in any information regarding PageRank. Considering the sensational and incorrect title you chose for this thread, the disregard you have for hard data, and the fact that Google doesn’t need outside sources for its PageRank calculation, I’m inclined to think you’re either misinformed or you made it up. Either way, you made the original (and subsequent) posts to get attention, and I fed the troll.

You must be truly misinformed if you think Google does not use outside sources to rank pages is delusional. Ever heard of DMOZ , backlinks. The whole Google technology relies on outside sources to send data back to the algorithm.

Google even uses Facebook friends, Twitter followers and what not to rank pages. It’s 2010 wake up not 2001, the Googlebot is very smart; hence making it the worlds number 1 search engine.

I can’t believe you actually thought that the Googlebot gets a random website and gives it a random pagerank, haha. “No outside sources” ouch!!

Compete has developed a unique methodology created by experts in the fields of mathematics, statistics and the data sciences to aggregate, transform, enhance and normalize data in order to estimate U.S. Internet traffic.

Based on the daily web usage of more than two million members (and growing!) of the Compete community, Compete calculates and estimates total traffic and rank for nearly every site on the web. We use rigorous statistics to make sure our estimates balance demographic and connection factors that match the entire U.S. Internet population. Currently, we’re calculating the number of people in the U.S. that visit any given Web site each month (international usage calculations are in development).

Compete online metrics are leveraged by some of the largest companies in the U.S. and often cited in publications like USA Today, Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.
So yeah, they basically guess how many americans are looking at website, gonna cancel my google analytics account tomorrow!

Wether it’s completely precise, or completely guessed Google still uses it as a ranking tool. Compete makes headlines when Facebook beats Google in terms of unique visitors so my 2 cents…

I think there should always be a large shiny “purchase” button regardless if someone is signed in or not.

If a user clicks on the button and isn’t signed in then there directed to a page to sign in or sign up.

No brainer to me. You would think this is the most obvious thing to do…

That’s awesome, forrst is really an amazing site, but I’ve yet to find great designers on there, only a few. I wonder, what’s your forrst profile ID? mine, http://forr.st/-kc_aplosweb

That is true. Very few good designers on there with talent.

My profile is http://forr.st/-iamhenry
What an elitist thing to say. Hope not everyone is like that on Forrst, would make a poor community.
I’ve noticed that you only provide negative feedback in every thread you comment on. You ok buddy?

Then you should check out more threats.

What is negative about my comment.

It is not more negative than saying Forrst lacks users with talent or skills. FYI there are maybe a 100 Themeforest users on Forrst or more.
I’m not bashing on Forrst. I only meant that the community seemed like it leans towards devs instead of designers. I visit Forrst everyday, so in no way am I talking bad about it.

Any Forrst invites left?

I doubt that link is rubbish, Google uses it as 1 element of ranking websites.

Yes, argue with the people who have the actual data to their website’s traffic. Make sure you use all caps to get your point across; it’s cruise control for cool.

So how, where does that site get its information? Also tutsplus.com is not the same as net.tutsplus.com.

Stating the Goolge uses compete as an element to rank websites is arguing? Lol…...

Honestly, get your facts right… I don’t think anyones arguing here.

Thanks for your input.

Man that link is rubbish, that analytics tool your using is way off. we run also a blog and have around 60.000 visitors a month and on with the tool you showed it’s 15.000

45.000 difference

You can’t collect exact traffic data from a third party tool.

I doubt that link is rubbish, Google uses it as 1 element of ranking websites.

That data isn’t accurate. You can see the comparison to last month here (we’re a bit up):

(October is blue)

Obviously it ain’t 100% accurate to every single visitor but you get the gist…

see if i can ??? with 1.200 purchases, the guy deserves a doman with a custom built application just to manage his downloads ….

You are absolutely right bitfade. Like Envato says “this person keeps our marketplaces running!” so get to work :p.

Just joking, but i think you should consider this.

That reply is worse than “see if I can”. :notfunny:
