Writerswrite.com Ranks #7 on Go2Net List of Top 100 Most Popular Websites
Writerswrite.com is ranked #7 on the Go2Net listing of the top 100 websites pertaining to books. Writerswrite.com is listed just following such industry giants as Amazon.com, PBS.org, BarnesandNoble.com and Borders.com.
``To be listed in the top 10 ahead of so many other major websites is gratifying. We are grateful to all of our loyal readers for making us such a popular destination,'' stated CEO Greg Knollenberg. ``Writerswrite.com's traffic continues to grow exponentially, and we are looking forward to a major expansion which we have planned for 2000,'' he added.
The source of Go2Net's data and the size of its sample give it a big advantage over other rating services. 100hot collects data on a daily basis from many different sources, representing the Web-surfing patterns of more than 100,000 surfers worldwide. Go2Net does not rank its properties in the 100hot listings to avoid any perceived conflict of interest. In operation since 1995, 100hot is the first category-by-category ranking index of Internet sites. 100hot is a property of the Go2Net Network (www.go2net.com).
``We protect the privacy of the people we sample, so the exact demographics are not known. Approximately 60 percent of the people we sample are from North America and 40 percent from elsewhere in the world. We include universities, businesses, and home users, although AOL, Prodigy, and Compuserve users are not represented. We do not disclose our exact data sources for competitive reasons and to ensure that webmasters do not try to influence their sites' ranking. Our data is stored in a powerful database. We track single-page views only. We don't track gifs, jpegs or frames at this time,'' states the Go2Net website.
