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.
- To get started, download DeliCount. It requires that the .NET 2.0 Framework be installed, which you can find here.
- Enter your sitemap address in the space provided, and click Go.
- 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.
- As of 10/18/07, Simplehelp has been bookmarked 8131 times – how many times has your site been bookmarked? Feel free to leave a comment below.
