Profiling based on online behavior

My wife is a male under the age of 18 based on her domain name. But based on a query against her real name, she is a female between the ages of 18 and 24.

I’m a male between the ages of 35-49 based on my name. is gender neutral and under 18.

Michael Silence is a female under the age of 18–nice pseudonym for a female writer! KristyK is under 18 and split exactly between male and female. Big Orange Michael is a teenage male. And Barry is a female between 25 and 34. Wow! Did I ever have the wrong impression about you guys! Btw, Google happens to be absolutely written by a woman age 25-34.

I don’t have a lot of confidence in Microsoft’s Demographic Predictor.

  3. I was wondering about you Busy Mom! I debated checking you out for one more sample. Now I know I should have!

  4. Huh …

    Interesting. I don’t know if I should be insulted, amused or cynical.

  5. Man, my wife is gonna be pissed…

  6. I’m kind of happy about my situation. I’ve always told Cathy she’s a lot younger than she thinks she is. Of course, I’m still doing the math on how old she was when Tommy was born.

  7. Categorically Speaking…

    How strange. After all, not only the career counselor, but many of my teachers, and the executives they often quoted, seemed to think that categorizing and profiling people was not only helpful, but very effective. I was told that you could determine w…

  10. This is such a wonderful and informative way to reach others. I Will be more than glad to share this site

  11. Howdy! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask. Does building a well-established website such as yours take a lot of work? I’m brand new to blogging but I do write in my diary daily. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

  12. That’s actually a rather complex question. Part of the answer is the answer itself and that is I’d rather answer in a post than in a offtopic comment. If I can get one written, I’ll link to it from this comment thread so you see it.

    In short, 1) decide the goal of your blog (you’ve noted it as share personal experience and thoughts) — staying focused leads to success 2) pick a schedule and keep to it as your readers will come to expect it. If you post once a month always post once a month; if you post twice a week always post twice a week etc. 3) lot of work? Conceptually yes. If you want it to happen quickly you must interact with potential readers through facebook, twitter, online communities, etc but not come across as a spammer.

    I’ll ponder your question and try to do a post later.
