other sites ranking and aggregating info for chat sites

In the past 24 hours I have been checking for other places that are talking about chat sites on the internet, mainly looking to see what other people are saying about the various portals. It amazes me sometimes when checking stats to see that a good chunk of traffic for some of our adult sites come from emails sent to people from friends. It also amazes me how people will start conversations about sites in various blogs and other online communities. More surprising the past day has been finding so many aggregation sites posting info.

There seems to be a slew of places that list page rank, traffic, ranking, site values and other information. I guess this info is public anyway, but seeing places setup entire sites dedicated to showcasing other people’s stats and stuff is kind of weird. I am not exactly sure how I feel about places like this checker just promoting information without consent. I guess there is nothing that can be done about it, other than post around the web saying that these automated valuations don’t have a clue sometimes, that should be obvious, I just hope people don’t consider any of the gospel.
