EdgeRank – WTH is it? Yes, we have all heard about it. Yes, we all know that it exists. Yes, we have all accepted the fact that while they may reveal an overall formula, it really doesn’t tell us jack sprat about how the score is calculated or how our facebook fan pages are performing. So, how in the heck do we figure out what is going on within our pages, or how many people are REALLY seeing our fan page posts/commentary.
Introducing, EdgeRank Checker. According to the creators of the service, they have created their very own algorithm that helps make sense out of Facebook’s rather cryptic EdgeRank formula. Affinity, Weight and Time Decay – yeah, does that make any sense to you? Didn’t think so…Let’s keep rockin.
The Facebook EdgeRank algorithm ranks objects in the Facebook News Feed. Pages that have high EdgeRank scores will be more likely to show up in the news feed, than Pages that have a lower EdgeRank Score. It doesn’t make a damn difference if you paid to run ads on facebook to gain fans. Just because you paid for those likes, doesn’t mean that you will show up in the news feed. Below, EdgeRank Checker explains the algorithm and their solution.
EdgeRank Checker is a dashboard for monitoring your EdgeRank score. Unlike other tools that utilize your historical data to suggest what you should be doing with your page to increase your score, EdgeRank Checker combines aggregate historical data to give you cutting edge advice about your page and what steps you should take to increase your score.
Furthermore the ERC dashboard comes complete with recommendation tools that tell you the best days of the week to post, and hour of the day based upon the information collected.
All in all this is a great visual representation of your score and hopefully utilizing such a smart tool will help you learn more about your audience and what you need to do to maximize your REACH!
