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.
While there are many men within the vicinity of the PeekScore blog, we’re not a particularly “laddish” bunch. As we’ve detailed previously, right here in these very virtual pages, our firm exteriors merely protect — from some of the world’s more cruel and unsavory elements — tender hearts and extremely enlightened souls. Ranking humans based upon the degrees to which they are or are not “sexy” or “hot” is not really our area of expertise; those sorts of concerns being best left to lad mags, and the like, to debate and determine. We “digital footprints” blogs are far more concerned with inner-beauty (as quantified on our PeekScore scale).
What we can do, though, is let those concerned — in this instance the readers of popular men’s magazine Maxim — decide who’s sexiest, and then we can step in and see how the folks that they’ve deemed appealing measure up here in cyberspace. And here we’ve done just that.
We’ve taken the top 10 women from Maxim‘s recently published Hot 100 to see how they compare in terms not of their hotness, nor sexiness, nor popularity with men, but in terms of their impacts and presences here in cyberspace (their digital footprints, as it were, a brief explanation of which can found in this entry’s header, and a more in-depth explanation of which can be found here).

This list could not be simpler. Basically, of all the 250,000,000 people indexed in PeekYou‘s database, these are the 10 pop musicians (or, indeed, active musicians of any description) with the highest PeekScores.
Who would you have expected to see higher? Who are you surprised to see so high? What musicians do you follow on Twitter, or “like” on Facebook? Let us, the good men and women of the PeekScore blog, know in the comments.
(We know that some of the commentary below is repeated from previous entries. Cut us some slack, man; not everyone reading will notice.)
Remember when all that crazy stuff happened with her and her untimely, oddly heartbreaking demise was accepted as an inevitability? Yeah, that was pretty weird. I guess it’s all okay now, though? That’s good.
We’d never in a million years have predicted that Taylor Swift’s career would know such longevity, and in fact we took her limited shelf-life for granted. Looking through this list we see a few artists who are now approaching middle-age as superstars, whose enduring appeal also once to us seemed an impossibility. In other words, what the hell do we know?
We watched Diddy perform on American Idol, a year or so ago. He had these huge strobe lights flashing frantically throughout the performance. Watching it on high def TV, we actually became nauseated. That was oddly impressive, and subversive in its way; whether deliberate or not.
Mr. Brown seems to be a young man with some issues, and a man who has exhibited some behaviors of which we do not approve. We’ll let the matter drop there, however, as we’re not sure we want to tangle with him. He has a tendency to respond to talk of his violent temper in rather dramatic and terrifying ways.
PeekYou has identified the top 100 people on the web, ordered by the size of their digital footprint; their PeekScore. This list is not a ranking by ability, income or even popularity. Where do you rank? Find out here.
