Orlando, FL (PRWEB) December 4, 2006
Web2Corp’s (OTC BB: WBTO) ByIndia.com has established itself as a growth leader among Indian search engines, outperforming any other site by more than 300% in the 30 days since it was re-launched as a web portal and social networking site. With double the reach of former #3-ranked Guruji.com and almost two-thirds the traffic of long-established #2-ranked portal 123India.com, ByIndia.com is quickly becoming the Indian web portal of choice. Over the same 30 days, traffic is up 700% and the site has jumped up 68,000 pages in the ranking, according to internet traffic ranking site Alexa.com.
ByIndia.com can attribute this rapid growth to the new features that were added to it after it was purchased by Web2Corp. Web2Corp, an American-based internet technology firm, added news, classifieds, video sharing, personal pages, and blogs to ByIndia.com during the site update and re-launch ByIndia.com now provides Indian users with functionality that is similar to eBay.com(NASDAQ: EBAY), Craigslist.com, YouTube.com (NASDAQ: GOOG), MySpace.com(NYSE: NWS), and Blogger.com, all from a single web portal. The combination of those features with a powerful search engine that automatically returns only Indian web sites is clearly getting attention from Indians. ByIndia.com has been re-envisioned as a Web 2.0 product, and other, more traditional sites simply can’t keep up.
ByIndia.com’s growth in comparison to other Indian search engines demonstrates how quickly it is gaining market share. During the same time period that ByIndia.com saw traffic increase 700%, Guruji.com saw barely a two-fold growth, #1 ranked Indian-owned web portal Sify.com actually saw a 4% decrease in reach, and 123India.com lost 22% of its daily traffic. ByIndia.com, already ranked third in overall traffic among Indian-operated search engines, has almost caught up with #2 search page 123India.com and already has a healthy 14.1% share of Sify.com’s market share.
