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.
On July 27, the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, or officially the Games of the XXX Olympiad, will commence in London, UK. Of the estimated 10,000 athletes participating, with this entry we’re taking a look at ten who, at this moment in time – before the games have started, and before perhaps new stars emerge – are being spoken and/or written of frequently online and off, and whose performances in the games are hotly anticipated.
Measuring each athlete on our 1-10 PeekScore scale, we’re assessing not his or her prowess on the field or in the pool (or wherever), but instead we’re looking at the mark being left here in cyberspace (the digital footprints, if you will, a concept explained in brief above, and more in depth by clicking through here).
Unsurprisingly, perhaps, our list is topped by a pair of veteran, professional athletes and long established, world class champions, who are also Olympians. Our fourth place finisher may be the most famous Olympian on the planet, or surely in PeekYou’s homeland, going into these games. Here on the web however, at this moment, as high as his score is, he is surpassed.
