Moving onwards and upwards, the GenderAnalyzer tests your blog for gender.
We have strong indicators that http://camelsnose.wordpress.com is written by a man (91%).
Should I tell them? They have a little poll set up, and the results reported now are 54% accurate. But in at least one blog thread, the accuracy of the results is running more around 25%.
So much for your writing habits. But what about reading? This Social Analyzer has a Java script that will analyze your gender based on your browser history.
Even better, the author of the script tells how he gets his numbers. Gender neutral is 1.0. Higher numbers are masculine, lower numbers are feminine. As far as political candidates’ websites, the male/female ratio for
hillaryclinton.com is 0.6
Shopping is a bit more intuitive:
victoriassecret.com 0.68 (a no-brainer)
circuitcity.com 1.2 (now in bankruptcy)
Is a high male score for shopping an predictor of financial difficulty? Hint: keep an eye on Radio Shack.
Technology sites tend to rank more male, except for cellphone corporate websites, which run more towards female.
So, what am I? On the PC I’m 61% female. On the laptop, I’m 98% male. Go figure.
