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.
As we’ve pointed out here on numerous occasions prior (such as here), we wish we didn’t live in a world where the idea of women in positions of affluence and leadership seemed novel or worthy of singling out. It is 2013, after all. But, there’s no denying that — for at least today — such specific acknowledgements do still often seem appropriate.
That tiny bit of what should frankly be uncontroversial politics aside, a little while back the good people at Business Insider created a list celebrating the accomplishments of who they deemed to be The 25 Most Powerful Women On Wall Street (you can read their article here).
What we’ve done is what we always do, and taken these 25 women to see how they measure up and compare in terms of their relative impacts and presences in cyberspace, as quantified by our PeekScore scale (an assessment of their “digital footprints,” as it were, a concept explained in brief above, and more in depth here).
These women all have scores within a very narrow PeekScore range, with many statistical ties throughout. While no internet superstars to really be found among them (with few if any Twitter accounts or blogs, etc) they are all, at least in part owing to the internet’s extensive financial and business coverage, present and accounted for here on the Web.
