Whew! The first quarter of 2012 has probably been the busiest and most exciting time at YaDig headquarters so far: we rolled out YaDig’s new and best ever site version yet; we upped our Love on social networks and are focusing on search engines more precisely. We also launched a new and improved blog under our own domain (you're reading it now :) ) and while we were busy doing all this stuff, we were also aggressively marketing the site to people in the UAE. Just as our staff’s sweat starts to dry a little, we’re already seeing the hard work paying off. Let us take you to a brief tour of our very recent achievements.
YaDig was featured in a recent article about the The Top Digital Companies in the Middle East and we're flattered to be hovering around such huge names. The truth is however, we have only just begun and 2012 is our year as we roll out products and features that will make for the most fun, competitive and rewarding online experience around.
At the end of January we were still under 150,000 PageViews a month. Now if you're not in digital business that means “hits” more or less. Well as of yesterday we were over 600,000 PVs and 80% of the entire traffic is now coming from the UAE with heavy numbers from Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. The numbers of our registered users have also skyrocketed, growing massively since the launch of our new build only two months ago. As we educate more people on how to use this social tool to engage with businesses, the word is obviously spreading! If you have a really good, or really bad experience out you should go directly to YaDig to tell your friends.
Did you know we’re about to reach a total of 80,000 followers for our Facebook Fan pages? Our most popular pages include YaDig UAE with 12,000 followers, YaDig ME with 8,000, YaDig India with 23,000, and YaDig Egypt with 20,000 followers. These numbers are as of today and there’s no stopping the ongoing explosion. We keep our followers updated about the hottest businesses in town via Facebook pages and users dig us for who doesn’t love pleasant surprises!
