After changing the name of Mataf.net in Forexticket I experimented a big drop in the number of visitors – see “What you should know about forexticket” and “changer un nom de domaine” (in french). It took 7 months to reach a new historic high. Last week Google analytics measured more than 250’000 unique visitors, a new record for me and a great relief.
Since the beginning of 2012 the audience doesn’t stop growing, slowly but surely. Now, my job is to capitalize this momentum and don’t stop innovations.
