Move Over PageRank, Meet Webmaster Happiness Rank
Move over PageRank and meet Webmaster Happiness Rank. That’s another metric that Google maintains, it turns out.
Speaking at SES Chicago today, Senior Developer Programs Engineer, Google, Maile Ohye said Google has a metric to measure webmaster happiness.
Every week, Google’s webmaster trends analysts team gets together to talk about how the webmaster’s are reacting to Google. This includes the biggest complaints found on the forums or on the blogs, bugs spotted and much more. Maile said, since Google loves to use math to measure everything, the team developed a “Webmaster Happiness Metric,” which they use to measure if webmasters are happy with Google or not. They hope to come out of every meeting earning a higher score than the previous week.
