Top 5 ranking services selected by a renowned SEO specialist Sydney.
When you get engaged in the process of building back links, you should submit guest posts or you can advertise on a site as well. Only popular sites should be selected because they are the ones that are really working. Though you cannot describe any ranking algorithm as perfect, here are some top ranking services to have better idea about high ranking sites:
1) Page Rank
A huge number of people rely on Google’s Page Rank service to check the popularity and quality of a site. Page Rank divides the sites into 11 categories on a scale ranging from 0 to 10 and there is an additional N/A category of sites that are not added in the ranking. When the PR of a site is higher, it will be considered as a good site and sites with a PR of 10 will always be very rare. You can come across a good number of sites with a PR of 7-9 and they can be described as high quality sites. Sites with a PR of 5 or 6 will be considered as good sites. Sites with PR of 3 and 4 are average sites and PR score between 0 and 2 are being treated as average.
Alexa doesn’t categorize sites into various groups. On the other hand; it a list will be created and the most popular sites like Google, Twitter and Facebook will always be on top of the list. If a site has lower Alexa ranking, it can be considered as a popular site and sites having Alexa ranking under 10K can be described as immensely popular. Sites with ranking of 10K to 30K come just below the first category in terms of popularity and Alexa ranking up to 100K can be described as reasonably popular sites. Around 200-250K will be considered as average sites and every site above 250K will be considered as low traffic sites.
Quantcast is a ranking service targeted primarily at the US market. The data is collected from a sample of users instead of relying on general internet population and Quantcast also collect their data from ISPs and ad companies as well.
Compete.com is another popular site and they collect their data from a sample of 2 million US users only. It cannot claim the authenticity of Alexa and Page Rank.
5) Custom rank

It also takes into consideration other metrics like date created, listed in DMOZ and load times as well.
