Define your own ranking criteria

There are a lot of discussions around the web about rankings, influence, transparency and ranking criteria. Today we will try a very new way: we have the data and you will get the control!

Control panel for your ranking

Control panel for your ranking

With the control panel you can choose which criteria shall influence your ranking. You can also define for each criteria the weight for the ranking. You can get a detailed description of each criteria with the tooltip at the question mark. You can also choose a specific country and if you want to see only profiles or pages.

You will get directly the results on this page and can also share it with your friends.

Try it out, it’s very easy: Login at CircleCount.com and afterwards got to Your ranking.
Here you can find for example the ranking of Daniel.

1,000!

Today we have reached 1,000 fans on our facebook fanpage!

This is great, since we are talking about a Google+ project!
btw: In Google+ we got the 1,000 followers after 2 days 😉

As we have announced it here, we will feature the 1,000th fan and one random fan for the next month on our startpage.

Congatulations to +Frank Deichmann (the 1,000th fan) and to +Valmir Hazeri (the random one)!

Continent-specific country distributions

You probably know the statistics pages at CircleCount showing the country distribution for profiles and pages.

Now you can browse through the continents and see the continent-specific country distribution for each continent:

Analyze your posts

Today we have an upgrade for your dashboard at CircleCount.com.

With this upgrade you get a table with all of your public posts. This table is sortable, so that you can easily find for example your most reshared and plusoned posts.

Sortable table of your posts

Sortable table of your posts

For each post you will find

  • the first part of the text, which is directly linked to your post
  • the date and the time
  • the number of comments
  • the number of +1’s
  • the number of reshares
  • the sum of +1’s and reshares
    • that’s a good indicator of the “overall popularity” of a post. The number of comments has been ignored, since everyone can raise this number by oneself

You will find this new table in your personal dashboard but also in the dashboard of your Google+ Page. If you didn’t add your Google+ Page to your profile yet, you can find out how to do this here.

You can also sort the posts in the same time on multiple columns. You just need to hold the shift-key on clicking at the column headers.

Normally you would analyze the posts with the most reshares, +1’s or comments. But there are also interesting findings if you sort the other way around. For example the Google+ Page of CircleCount has no post without at least one +1 or one reshare! 😉

Dashboard for Google+ Pages

We have asked you and you said you would like to have the dashboard at CircleCount.com also for your Google+ Pages. The result of the last days is:
You can get now a dashboard for your Google+ Pages 😉

Take a look for example on our dashboard:

Here you can see that we get the fewest comments on Thursday. Let’s try to change this with the post to this announcement on a Thursday 😉

At the moment there is no way through the API of Google+ to find out if you are the admin of a page, so we are working with a short post you have to send through your page to verify that you are the admin. We hope this workflow is self-explanatory. Try it out!
