@milosevic, please continue mocking my suggestions which I offered to further benefit the average webmaster. People thinking outside the box are those that usually succeed. Please continuing viewing Websites and ranking in your very narrow vision of what Websites are and how they rank. I'd rather look ahead in uncharted paths, as I'm pretty sure, one day it will matter.
My suggested metrics look at properties in their whole, not only on the Web. It's about what kind of metric a company like Google whose goal is to organize the world's information may use to determine what a brand is.
Links to a radio interview conducted about your property, or mention of your mobile app, using the same name can only help your domain's branding. It also creates genuine links and references to your property. We already know that Google has the mean to scan non Web-based information, like patents, trade-marks, registries, Nasdaq listings and so on. When determining what is a real Website and what is a fly-by-night, don't you think these matters?
Common sense depends on how you define it. For some people, many preferring to remain silent, my metrics have a lot of common sense.
