Are you smarter than Mark Cuban?

dunceYou may feel a little better about yourself after visiting Juicy Studio, which has an online analysis tool for verifying your site’s reading level…

Per Juicy Studio: Reading level algorithms only provide a rough guide, as they tend to reward short sentences made up of short words. Whilst they’re rough guides, they can give a useful indication as to whether you’ve pitched your content at the right level for your intended audience.

So what grade level do you have to be to read the following blogs? Here’s a sampling of ten other sites, some of them some Top 100 blogs, and their associated reading levels:

  1. Arianna Huffington = 5.45
  2. Mark Cuban = 5.70
  3. Seth Godin = 5.98
  4. New York Times = 5.99
  5. Lifehacker = 6.18
  6. Michelle Malkin = 6.70
  7. My Site = 6.92
  8. Boing Boing = 6.96
  9. TechCrunch = 7.06
  10. Wall Street Journal = 7.08
  11. Engadget = 7.58

I looked up a couple other sites (I won’t mention them)… and yikes! Some of them scored pretty low. Check your site with the Juicy Studio Readability Test.

NOTE: Simply putting up this post will modify my score a little bit… hopefully on the positive side!
