Yeah Riiiiight....

Interesting....I looked up my domain name with the Link Popularity tool, here are the results:

Link Popularity Report
Alexa Traffic Ranking: 11617
Present in DMOZ: No
Present in Zeal: No

AlltheWeb: 1
AltaVista :56,500
Google: 0
MSN Search: 32
Yahoo! :56,500
Link Popularity Total: 113,033

According to the tool:"A site that has a Link Popularity Score of 1,000-5,000 is considered average. A site with a Link Popularity Score of 20,000 is considered popular. Sites with a Link Popularity Score above 100,000 are Internet "Icons"."

So with a score of 113,033, I'M an "Internet Icon"!

All I have to say is that it seems that this tool has some serious flaws; but I needed the ego boost, so I'm not going to investigate any furthur and bask in the undeserved rating, at least until some schmuck comes and bursts my bubble.

H/T to GuyK for directing me to the link and giving me an ego boost when I really needed it.

I guess I'll have to be satisfied with just being popular. What's interesting is that the categories our sites score in are completely different. Although I have a hard time believe not a single site in Yahoo links to me while I get 61,000 from AllTheWeb (what's that?). The stats for Swerve Left came up with:

Alexa Traffic Ranking 30 (view)
Present in DMOZ No (view)
Present in Zeal No (view)
AlltheWeb 61,000 (view)
AltaVista 0 (view)
Google 248 (view)
HotBot (view)
MSN Search 148 (view)
Yahoo! (view)
Link Popularity Total 61,396
