CircleCount.com in japanese

Flag of Japan

Today we are launching CircleCount.com in japanese! You can find the japanese pages at http://jp.circlecount.com/

With the great help of 朝山貴生 (Takao Asayama) our japanese visitors will be able to browse through the pages of CircleCount.com in their own language. The translation to japanese was a big milestone since it’s not “only” translating everything to another language but also using another charset. This is something that has to be considered for example in our statistic pages, where everything is rendered as an image.

We want to thank Takao for the whole work!
We are happy to have such a good partner in Japan and are looking forward for the next steps!

Get your CircleRank on your page

After the Follower Button is used on hundreds of websites we got a lot of feedback regarding (y)our button. Thanks a lot to our community for this great feedback!

Today we are happy to launch the CircleRank Button. You can use it the same way as the Follower Button. With this new button you will get your CircleRank on your website.

The CircleRank is your position in the global ranking regarding the number of followers. This number is updated daily, so that you will have always the current CircleRank on your website.

You can find the full image in the posting of Alfredo in his profile.

We are very proud at CircleCount.com that our community is starting to create their own, special statistics with our numbers.
Thank you Alfredo for being one of the first!

Search has to be fast

In CircleCount.com we are working with a lot of data coming from Google+. That leads to the expectation that the search on such a website has to be fast.

Unfortunately we are not directly related to Google, so we don’t have the resources Google has. But we are trying our best 😉

Today we have done some optimizations so that the search on our startpage got faster. It’s just the first step, since we know that you are used to get your results in very short time. We are working on even more optimizations, so stay tuned.

A new feature regarding the search is the option to use a wildcard. You can use a “*” as a wildcard for multiple chars.

Try it out.
Any feedback is welcome, so that we can optimize CircleCount.com together with you.

Get the Button of CircleCount.com in your language

You probably know already our button. A lot of people know it and are using it on their website. We are very proud to get such a great feedback from the community. Thanks for this!

Today Pedro Donaire asked us if it would be possible to get the content of the button translated. It wasn’t. But now it is! 😉

In the moment there are three languages available:

  • English (as default)
  • German
  • Spanish

It’s very easy to get the button in your language. Just add “&lang=XX” to the url of the button, where you can use “en” (English), “de” (German) or “es” (Spanish).

If you would like to get the button in another language: Just tell us. We will add the new language as soon as possible.

Verified profiles at Google+ – and now also at CircleCount.com

Wen-Ai Yu, who is working at Google, has announced before some hours, that a verification process is available at Google+:

We’re starting to roll out verification badges on profiles so you can be sure the person you’re adding to a circle is who they claim to be. Check out the video below (or my profile) to see what these verification badges look like.

For now, we’re focused on verifying public figures, celebrities, and people who have been added to a large number of Circles, but we’re working on expanding this to more folks.

You can find her post here.

We are proud that we were able to add this feature only a few hours after the announcement of the Google+ team.

On the page “Verified” you can find a list of the Top 100 verified profiles. You can also set a filter to a country for this list.

And you can see now on any page of CircleCount.com if a profile is verified by Google:

“Fight” is a hard word, but we have only funny fights!

Today we are launching a new way to compare two profiles in Google+.
It’s a feature with a short name: A vs. B

You have two input fields on this page, where you can find the profiles you want to compare. Just start typing within these fields and you will get a suggestion list of the available profiles for this comparison.

A vs. B @ CircleCount.com

We have seen a lot of data and can you present some interesting “fights”:

Thanks to Nicole

In Germany Nicole (0511web.de) was the first one to write an article, in which all providers of ranking tools were mentioned. It is more than interesting to see how many ranking-sites were build in such a short time. Moreover it is interesting to see the development process of each indiviual site, in such an early stage.

Google+ Linkliste und Verzeichnisse rund um Google+ Nicole @ 0511web

Google+ Linkliste und Verzeichnisse rund um Google+ Nicole @ 0511web

Differences are for example:

  • the design
  • the clarity of the design and the navigation
  • different ranking tools from Germany or the USA
  • available languages
  • the ranking tools from the US have a little advantage, since they have got more attention. Conclusion of the US press; they watch and write more often about small internet projects than the german press does (interested in the internet)
  • how are profiles caught and how many become evaluated / processed
  • response time
  • kindness and Spirit

We are more than happy that we were mentioned in this blog.

Thank you very much Nicole!

CircleCount.com used for interviews in Indonesia

We are proud to see a new interesting way to use CircleCount.com.

Joshua Kevin searched in the Top 100 of Indonesia and found the most followed persons from Indonesia to take an interview. Very interesting questions and even more interesting answers. You can find the interviews on Penn Olson.

More interesting for us at CircleCount.com is that after 2 days the Top 100 in Indonesia has changed a lot. Diki Andeas is still Nr. 1, but Enda Nasution who was Nr. 2 is now at the 5th position in Indonesia, that means there is a lot dynamic in Google+ in Indonesia.

You can see this dynamic also in our statistics, especially in this case in the follower statistics of the Top 10 in Indonesia:
