United Kingdom (PRWEB) August 11, 2009
Many consumers are continuing to seek out the services of free online dating sites to help bail out their love life, according to one of the web's leading free dating sites, freedating247.com (http://www.freedating247.com). Since February 2009, the site has seen a 50% month on month increase in the use of its services.
In a recent interview with Bright Productions Ltd directors, Andy Blundell and Jon Hayes, Andy said, "Our original aim was to have the free online dating site's new redesign completed by the end of the second quarter of 2009. However, as the site began to grow beyond what we anticipated, we have had to adapt our plans accordingly. The schedule we had in place was always flexible, which was just as well, as when we worked through the various updates and upgrades, we continued to have fresh ideas on how we could improve the free dating site's features and functionality. Our primary goal was to make the whole free online dating experience a much easier and less daunting prospect for our existing and new members. We believe we have achieved this, but we are not resting on our laurels. We have more features that we wish to include and are currently working on this, with the aim to have them up and running on the site by the end of the 3rd quarter of 2009."
When asked about the increase in the free dating site's traffic, Jon went on to say, "On checking the site's statistics since February, 2009, we found that we have achieved a 50% month on month increase up to the end of July, 2009. This was beyond what we had anticipated, but was clearly very pleasing. Breaking the statistics down, we found that the number of unique visitors to the site had risen by 282%, the number of visits had risen by 287% and the number of page views increased by a massive 473%. Obviously, we would like to say that this was all down to the work we have been doing on the site's redesign, making it much easier for our members to navigate and to use when searching for a date, but we can say that it has been a major contributing factor, that, along with the increase in the use of sites that offer free online dating during the current economic recession."
When asked about future developments, Andy added, "We aim to finish the original redesign features by the end of August, 2009, then plan to develop further internationally; 65% of web users are non-English speaking, therefore it makes sense for us to accommodate this potential market of non-English speaking visitors looking for free dating sites."
