Tel Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) June 19, 2009
As there is a seemingly endless supply of child-appropriate websites on the Internet, kids' websites are facing the same challenges as other sites on the net, namely bringing traffic and capturing the users' attention.
In a quest to drive website traffic and increase site popularity, marketers and brands are all doing their best to stand out and attract users, and to convince them to visit their websites. This, however, is quite a complicated task, as young kids visiting sites depend totally on their parents to set up the sites for them.
But what happens when you put all the kids' websites into one place and create easy navigation for children to surf these sites? What happens when you let the kids decide for themselves what their favorites are from a big selection?
This is exactly what happens in KIDO'Z, and what this Kid's Web Environment does is it gives every kids' website a fair chance to make its mark, by letting the kids themselves decide what their most popular websites are, regardless of marketing spending and online efforts.
Websites are added to KIDO'Z by parents and educators from all over the world. The KIDO'Z smart content engine ensures that, in addition to personalizing the content for each kid, all content that has been recently added is getting exposure. This keeps the content fresh for the kids and gives the new content a chance to become popular.
The following lists represent the 10 most visited sites on KIDO'Z by kids from more than 80 countries. "Through KIDO'Z, young children have direct access to hundreds of kids' websites in more than 30 languages in a safe, central place." -- Gai Havkin, CEO.
These websites are identified by colorful eye-catching thumbnails and children simply need to click on the image of their choice to visit the site. Children can also easily add any website to their Favorites section for fast and easy return to the sites that they like the most."
You'll notice that even though some of the big brands are up there, there are also a couple of unique, smaller sites that are making their mark. For example, Fun Brain and Poisson Rouge are listed among the most popular English websites in KIDO'Z, and through KIDO'Z, they are given the opportunity to compete with some of the established big brands. These two sites fall under the educational website category and use learning games and activities to educate children. The popularity of these sites could be indicative of the demand by children for educational and interactive website content.
