Business Wire, January 10, 2007, Orlando, FL - Byindia.com is a reworked social networking and search site that was re-launched by Web2Corp 3 months ago and was already covered here on Profy. The site also provides live auctions, a blog portal, classifieds, and video among other features. Growth for the company over these 3 months has been tremendous, according to the release. ByIndia achieved the #1 most visited ranking just prior to 2007, and the mentioned growth has exceeded 700 percent continuously over this same period. This new Indian company has already doubled the traffic of its competitors Guruji.com and SearchIndia.com according to Alexa.com.
Bill Mobley, CEO of Web2Corp said:
ByIndia.com continues to grow beyond all of our expectations. The fact that we’ve grown more than 700 percent each and every week for three months really shows that we’re starting to get traction in the Indian internet community. Our search engine is, of course, the most popular product that we offer, but we’ve also been seeing a lot more people going to our blogs and video sections, taking advantage of our new Web 2.0 products. The power of Web 2.0 lies in making your users return customers who engage in commentary and dialogues. I think it’s clear that we’re doing that.
Byindia is kicking off the New Year with a bang, as Mobley announced that they will be having monthly drawings for a $5 million dollar jackpot drawing for new registrants. ByIndia serves Indian consumers in much the same way MySpace, YouTube, and eBay do people outside India.
It is nice to see sites from around the world, and how people in those places view the world. As we enter the 21st century, our similarities become as obvious as our differences. The ByIndia site is very much like those most popular ones we utilize here. I believe it was Confucius that said: “Emulation is the sincerest form of compliment.” We all really learn from copying things that we find useful or pretty, and true innovation is often the reintroduction of something long since forgotten.
