Gauge the Progress of Your Website or Blog, Two Free Tools
You have worked real hard to put up a website or blog and now what? One of the things you want to do is measure the progress of the site and see how it fits popularity wise. There are a couple of tools I use, which are free. I call this the “quick and dirty approach” to measure the relative strength of your site.

You want the number sites appearing in the search to be as high a possible. This would include indexed pages, possible linked in sites, social bookmarks, etc. As you progress the number will grow and your traffic will increase.
