Social media can be very easy to measure unlike some traditional marketing methods. Here are a few quick ways to measure the success of your social media efforts whether its blogs, forums, wikis or social networking pages.

• Blogs – Referrals, RSS subscribers, comments & ratio of comments to blog posts,

• Podcasts - Number of downloaders, repeat downloaders

• Wikis - How often the wiki is updated, how much content is added

• Social networking pages (Facebook) - How many friends, how many user discussions, click throughs to website

• Microblogging (Twitter) - How many followers, how many people have reproduced your posts, how many discussions about your brand, how many questions directed to you

• Social bookmarking – check social bookmarking sites such as delicious to review how many people are sharing your company’s articles and content

Through looking at all these different metrics you can build up a profile of what your social media campaign has achieved in bringing to your business.

I would say it should go further than this.

For instance it's easy enough to track how many visits come from Twitter if you make sure you set the links up then you can track these as a campaign all the way your sales funnel.

Getting a clear financial return from social media makes it much easier to convince HIPPOs

Some nice advice here, but to many this can still be quite daunting so it's a good idea to spend some time reading up on how to do it. Chrisbrogan.com (and his book) is a great place to start for the uninitiated.

Also, you seem to have missed out Page rank..
