What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news. For first time visitors a more in-depth explanation of what the PeekScore is, and how to increase your own, can be found by clicking through here.
The inspiration for today’s list could not be simpler: Below are the ten athletes who were highest paid during this past year. In keeping with the kinds of things we get up to here at the PeekScore blog, we’ve decided to see to what degree the respective compensations of these individuals corresponds to their various visibilities, activities, impacts, and presences here in cyberspace (in other words, we’re assessing their digital footprints; a brief explanation of which can be found above, and a more in depth one can be found by clicking through here). We already know that in the case of some of the individuals listed below, there are those out there who don’t believe their athletic abilities alone have gone very far in justifying their arguably unseemly, and objectively handsome, paydays. But what of these athletes’ efforts and abilities to reach their spotty, slouchy lessers out here in the ever-expanding, in both size and import, online realm? The PeekScores provide their answers, scientifically and objectively as always.
