Of course, I know that the "king of medical publishing" NEJM is incomparable in significance to a blog but this shows how democratic the Internet is.

sandnsurf @AllergyNotes Like the website grader site - thanks for that - too embarrased to post my scores though!

AllergyNotes @sandnsurf Re: "grader site - too embarrased to post my scores" -- You publish high quality original content and the numbers will only go up

Ves Dimov, M.D.
AllergyNotes @sandnsurf Re: Website Grader -- In fact, it's worse to have a score of 98 or 99 because your score can only go down... :-)


Twitter works well for creating a searchable, "no login required" archive of notes. As a bonus, you can use it later for blogging ideas.

  1. Not impressed. Tools like these give a false sense of security for sites near the top. For example, our site gets a 98.5, yet I think there's still a lot more potential for improvement....

  2. My virtual tour company http://www.regal360.com started out as a grade 15, 2 months later and my current grade is 84. This has been a great tool in helping me increase my traffic. I also use seomoz.org they have great tools as well.
