About Economic Footprint
The Economic Footprint is what Dataprovider.com uses to determine how important a website is on the web from an economic point of view.
Because we index so many websites, we know how websites link to each other (and we know how important the linking websites are). Additionally, we know a lot about each website; is it well built, does it have vacancies, incoming links, referring domains, domain age, hosting data etc. With the help of our clients and our proprietary metric developed in conjunction with the University of Groningen, we developed a ranking factor called the Economic Footprint.
The Economic Footprint runs from 1 (small) to 100 (big), based on all the data we have. It gives you a good idea of the economic impact a website has.
