Enter a domain into Quarkbase and it will generate information on:
- Traffic Rank
- Countries in which it is famous
- Tags (keywords; topics – roughly equivalent to ‘concerns’)
- Language (e.g. English)
- Social popularity: Delicious Bookmarks; Diggs; Technorati; StumbleUpon; Reddit; Wikipedia
- Technology/Framework (e.g. PHP)
- Number of feeds
- Blogging tool (e.g. WordPress)
- Contact person
- Domain creation and expiration date
- Daily traffic rank (Alexa) – also monthly and three-monthly average, with change
- Unique page views – daily, monthly and three-monthly average, with change
- Percentage of global internet users visiting
- Host info
- Similar and related sites
- And sundry other facts.
Good for comparing sites. Mashing up at its best.
In the spirit of constructive feedback:
- I was quite surprised at how little social popularity reflects actual hits. Maybe Digg and Reddit are not good measures of ‘Social Popularity’ – I would imagine that they have a younger usership for example. A move beyond dominant social software tools included there to incorporate similar others, such as Diigo and Wikio, would be good.
- I would find it helpful to be able to measure variation in a ‘social popularity’ between social software tools
- Transparency – a little more about the mashup for the layperson. Why can’t I see a subscriber count for some web sites when I can for others? How are similar and related sites generated?
- I really want to know about volume of comments and readership of comments. I’ll be lucky, as things stand.
There is a relatively in-depth review at AppScout.
