Interesting Power of the Web

7 Jun

A side project we did a long-long time ago was Local Moa – a very simple New Zealand local-search.

We haven’t updated it since day one (we will definitely be re-visiting it sometime soon).

What is interesting is that the # of contacts has gone up, and today alone we received four. Traffic has gone up, and now does about 425 unique visitors a day.

Not a lot really. But – The population of New Zealand is 4.11 million (according to the CIA). In that context, we reach 0.01% of the country’s population, every day

With a total investment under 20 hours, in a month we reach roughly 0.20% of the country’s population. I think thats pretty cool.

Do you guys partner with people in specific countries to do local-search offerings or are you more happy to keep everything inhouse?

Sent you an email Anthony.

For anyone that reads this in the future – in general, we focus on our own internal systems, but we are always willing to listen to others.
