That might work on SC too.

You've made me sit up and think. A weekly update would be very easy....
very awesome :-) but a bit extra is nice too ;-) run it for a week and see what happens. DR gets a lot more traffic i bet than any but maybe one of my sites. I was just try'n to be general :-)

if people pitch a fit about it you can always disable it for people who have signed up. But then again i would speculate many people who go there have an ad blocker.

and a weekly update would be fairly easy. Heck, I have been writing a new script just about every week that could just about qualify lol.

I'm very interested in what a site like DR or SC would get from AdSense if you do it let me know how it works out.

I've never used any of the commercial ad feeders. I don't want ads at all, much less banners/animations/etc. I have done my best to keep the sites non-commercial. But, I was just thinking, reopen SC with weekly, or intermittent, updates, and open it for donation under the same terms as DR. I could handle weekly updates without hitting my burnout threshold (which is very easy to get to these days). This plan could possibly save Shell City.

OK, unless I forget, Sunday night I'll do a Monday update on Shell City, and I'll explain that updates will be intermittent, but something like weekly.

I always enjoyed SC now on a Mac less use but the potential to find other applications just because of the link
has paid off for me before.

Like I said interesting, gentlemen indeed.

I get different numbers from different sources for the DR PR. From one I get 6, from another 7, and from a third 0.

What's up with that?

Some GPR checkers attempt to calculate the GPR themselves to avoid getting banned by Google. Since Google never released an official formula they use their best guess on what it is. These are rarely correct but are usually fairly close.

Some PR checkers use out of date info and get an invalid result. (0 or N/A)

Variance will occur if GPR is currently in update mode. One GPR server will report one number while another hasn't updated yet. This only happens a handful times a year and is usually synced with in a day or two.

Google Tool Bar is the best place to get your GPR but it only works in IE and Chrome.

I currently use the WebRankStats Firefox extension. It works rather well. It also gives you a Alexa, Complete and Quantcast ranks among other things.

I have a GPR of 5 for SxC and 6 for DR

yup, the WR More button which takes to their site is pretty nice too. Not only does it give you a free back link. gives you some decent details about your site.

The database sometimes goes away but other than that its pretty good.

I was thinking about working on something similar to it since i have i bit of the stuff done already... and i'm not much of a interface designer :-/
