Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) February 5, 2006
WorkersCompensation.com announced today that it achieved a 54.8% increase in site traffic in 2005 over the previous year. This follows an increase of 164.7% in 2004. In fact, WorkersCompensation.com has experienced double and triple digit growth in traffic every year since the site went live on January 1, 2000. In addition, 119,615 people bookmarked the website as a favorite place in 2005, giving what company executives feel is tremendous potential for continued exponential growth. "We consider a bookmark to be a tremendous compliment, and validation that we offer something special", says Sandy Blowers, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for WorkersCompensation.com. "When they bookmark our site, we know they are coming back."
WorkersCompensation.com serves the entire workers' compensation industry, along with employers, risk managers, medical and legal professionals, as well as injured workers. The website provides a wide range of data free to the public, including statutes, rules, forms, and other vital information for every state in the nation. Washington, DC, Longshore and Federal information is also included. According to Robert Wilson, president of WorkersCompensation.com, the employees of the company are "pleased but not surprised" by the website's ever increasing popularity. "When we started developing the website back in 1999, we knew we would be filling a highly specialized need for the workers' comp community. Every state legislates and manages its own workers' comp system, which means that companies today must deal with a myriad of confusing regulations and requirements in coping with their employment risk management concerns. Our website is the only national website offering such complete information to the public", says Wilson. "We fully expect this trend to continue for quite some time."
He appears to be correct, as the company has also reported that in January 2006 unique visitors increased 71% over the same month last year. Also in January 2006 a record 15,571 people added the site to their "favorite places". In addition to the public data, the company provides subscription services that offer advanced research tools not available to the general public. This includes the recently announced and highly successful CompBob! Preferred Members’Area.
The website, according to Wilson, is serving millions of unique visitors every year. With almost every employer in the nation and 95% of employees covered by workers’ comp insurance, the future for the company looks bright.
