Guitar Gear Heads is proud to announce an incredible first four months of operation. We have seen considerable growth in both content and membership far exceeding our expectations. Developing any new web community is a challenge. However, through key manufacturer relationships and extensive link sharing with top music related websites we have achieved some amazing milestones. In just four months we are now consistently holding the #1 to #3 spot out of almost three million sites found on Google when searching for "guitar gear". Nearly one in ten of all visitors add us to their favorites, and the average visitor views an astonishing 18 pages per visit. We are continuing to develop our very extensive link section of over 420 links to music related sites an well as 55 music related downloads.
We designed Guitar Gear Heads for two reasons. The first reason is to provide our readers with an unbiased review resource for guitar, bass, recording, and live sound gear. These reviews allow manufacturers to reach an immediate audience at a fraction of the cost of other review publications. The second reason for the Guitar Gear Heads site is to provide a focused community where equipment manufacturers can accurately gauge the pulse of the guitar gear buying public. This provides a unique opportunity to obtain direct feedback on current offerings and to elicit ideas for future products. All of this is accomplished through sophisticated community features enabled by a dynamically generated content. Principal among these is our article comment system, discussion forum, user reviews and chat rooms. One of our current strategies is to schedule specific company chat times in our chat room where manufacturers can discuss products directly with our user base in real time.
This week construction of Gear Heads Lab was started. Gear Heads Lab is going to be a professional level studio with a sound room and a separate control room. This will allow a high fidelity testing environment for all guitar related gear and recording equipment.
