QDOS v ego ogle
The result gives you not just a numerical score but also measures of; popularity, impact, activity and individuality - but I can't find (or validate) the algorithms it uses. It also lets you compare your score with others - but at the moment most of these are premiership footballers, Nobel Prize winners etc - so I'm not sure how valid this is.
I will admit to previously putting my own name into Google - the so called ego ogle - and watching page ranks for sites I run, but I think doing this too often is probably a sign of egotism.
I can't see either of these mechanisms being used in a future Research Assessment Exercise - but I do wonder if the metrics currently being developed will reach the same heights the citation indices have for academic publishing in paper journals as a measure of esteem.
By the way my QDOS score is 3703 - what is yours? I wonder if this post will put my score up?
