September 17, 2010 — There seems to be no definitive source that can tell us exactly how big the Internet is in terms of the number of websites out ‘there’ but Jesse Alpert & Nissan Hajaj, “Software Engineers, Web Search Infrastructure Team for Google” published their findings a while back that indicate there are 1 TRILLION “unique URLs (websites) on the web at once”!
One trillion is just too big a number to comprehend and unlike that report there are other studies that more clearly define a URL (website address) and seem to eliminate ‘sites’ such as (e.g.) “facebook.com/ulovetimeshares1234morethan…”, etc. Those studies suggest there are somewhere between 125 to 175 Million unique URLs (websites).
Those, too, are pretty large numbers. So if we break it down even further we do know that in the USA there are approximately 30 Million businesses and it would be a safe guestimate to assert that about 75% (22.5 Million) of those do have a unique website promoting their services, products, etc.
This leads me to ‘Inside The Gate’. As of this writing this website is ranked by Alexa (an Amazon.com company) as the 162,246 most visited website in the United States, which statistically makes our daily timeshare news service rank in the top 0.72% of all (those) US-based (business) websites.
Surely there are currently more popular ‘Timeshare’ websites than ‘Inside The Gate’ but considering most have been online for up to a decade or longer and that ‘Inside The Gate’ did not officially make a public announcement of its existence until just a few months ago it is fairly safe– even conservative– to suggest that we’re off to a good start and likely, in time, to increase our overall traffic and ranking even further.
And we’re not just being noticed in the USA either, because according to our various reporting services visitors seem to have discovered ‘Inside The Gate’ in noticeable numbers across parts of Europe, “Down Under” in Australia, Asia (especially China and the Philippines), Latin America and more.
So if you have a ‘widget’ to promote and sell, a PR (press release) to distribute or you just want to spread a word or two, hire some marketing, sales or management personnel, come along for the ride and keep us in mind because one thing is absolutely assured: You’ll get noticed ‘Inside The Gate’ by thousands in the ‘biz’ from the developer level to admin personnel and that is what advertising is all about!
