Kool little “WHATS HOT” tool!

The mighty MSN has a new little tool. It’s called xRank!

If your a PPC person that is fond of celebrity type polls then this is what you need to be checking.  Don’t worry about or Google Trends. This new little toy from MSN will show you which celebrities are getting the most buzz. 

I know this toy will show you over 1000.  I didn’t search much after that.  But how cool is that.  You can even find celebs that get buzz… that you’ve never heard about! Building a campaign around a celebrity that no one in PPC is building a campaign for is gold!

Check it out at

Okay… I know I said not to combine it with Google Trends or Yahoo! Buzz… But do it anyways… Now thats power!

Okay no comments on this one. I’ll be the first.
I have to say, this is a nice function tool that they have. MSN has several tools for marketers. I think they are trying to get the upper hand on Google in that respect. Helping your Marketers market better is always a good thing.

As far as this specific tool. There is a graph associated with each celebrity so you can see how they are performing. If you notice an up and down curve to the graph then that celebrity will always have some buzz about them. If you notice a sudden surge something hot must have happened. And if you notice that some celebs have no buzz about them, I would stay away from those guys.

Nice tool. Thanks for the write up!

I’ve been following Xrank and it shows some really popular terms. It seems that MSN has a lot to offer to its advertisers in terms of real data tools
