How to determine the number of times your site has been bookmarked on del.icou.us

Using DeliCount, a free program created by the How-To Geek, you can find out how many times your site – and all of the pages on it, has been bookmarked on the popular social bookmarking service del.icio.us.

  1. To get started, download DeliCount. It requires that the .NET 2.0 Framework be installed, which you can find here.

  5. Sit back and watch as DeliCount uses your sitemap to count the total number of times your sites contents have been bookmarked on del.icio.us. Note: this can take a while depending on how many pages your site has. I tried to determine the number of times the contents of Read/WriteWeb had been bookmarked and after 8 hours (and 65k+ bookmarks) del.icio.us decided I had been polling just a little too much, and temporarily banned my IP. It’s also worth noting that if you do get banned, it won’t be for more than a few hours.
