I created a topics page that uses several tag clouds to monitor how people are using this site. By comparing the tag clouds on the topics page I can figure out what people are most interested in, and how that corresponds with my own interests. In addition, the tag clouds show what makes people interact or link to my posts.

Comparing different tag clouds makes it easier to digest website traffic, and could be useful to improve visitor conversion rates, to guide search engine advertising, or to speed up the bootstrap process of interactive websites.

Great idea.

Just one comment. I think the first three groups should be weighed against the fourth one.

If you write a lot of articles about Drupal, it's only logical that this group of articles is more read, linked to and commented on.

So I think you should divide the read/link/comment tag clouds by the corresponding number of articles written.
