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.
Back in February, Forbes Magazine had former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, Kathy Ireland, on its cover to accompany an article wherein it was revealed that – via her numerous contracts and clothing lines, and assorted business ventures – Ms. Ireland’s current net worth is somewhere in the neighborhood of about $315 million; astronomical earnings and holdings, which find her now the richest model on Earth. As you readers of the PeekScore blog seem to like it when we write about models, and nearly as much when we write about money, a list of this sort seemed a natural. We know that Ms. Ireland’s is the biggest pile of loot, but how does she measure up in comparison to the remainder of the world’s ten richest models when it comes to her presence and impact here on the web?
Doing as we always do, we’ve employed our amazing little PeekScore scale to see how these women – both photogenic and industrious out in the flesh and blood world, as they all evidently are – compare when it comes to digital footprints (an explanation of which can be found above, or more in-depth by clicking through here).
The uniformly high scores suggest that this is, from the perspective of cyberspace, a very famous group of women.
Any thoughts or feelings on Ms. Ireland’s bounty and numerous successes? Any models you would have more expected to see counted among the worlds most richly rewarded? Let us know in the comments.
