Get quantified with Quantcast

There's a new internet ratings service in town and it's called Quantcast. Touted as the world's first open internet ratings service, advertisers can use it to find reports on the audiences of millions of web sites. On the other hand, if you are a web publishers (or blogger), you can "Quantify your site" by tagging them for direct measurement. The best part is that this service is totally free.

In order to "Quantify your site", you need to sign up first. Cut and paste the personalized javascript tag provided into your site's page. They will start measuring your traffic immediately and within a few days you'll see new traffic statistics in your profile.

I am really curious to see how it differs from the statistics provided by Google analytics.

See what they have to say about the top 5 websites:
  1. yahoo.com 127M+ U.S. monthly uniques. The site caters to a more educated, slightly male slanted following.
  2. google.com 118M+ U.S. monthly uniques. The site caters to a slightly male slanted, more educated, more affluent audience.
  3. aol.com 59M+ U.S. monthly uniques. The site attracts a more youthful, fairly wealthy group.
  4. msn.com 59M+ U.S. monthly uniques. The site appeals to a more educated, very slightly male biased, more affluent group.
  5. myspace.com 52M+ U.S. monthly uniques. The site caters to a very slightly female biased, teen and young adult audience.
My ranking is nothing to shout about. It's ranked 8,205,628 as of today.
