We had a good and productive year with many exciting developments at hakia. For those who are watching us and asking, we decided to reveal the search traffic profile of hakia in 2007 as shown in the graph below. Red line indicates the search traffic that includes commercial terms. The entire search traffic was filtered to exclude automated queries.
Our main focus remains development and analysis as we enter 2008. hakia.com BETA stage operation will end with the deployment of all features and analyzed content in 2008. The market positioning of hakia, another frequently asked question, will be revealed. However, we are patient to do it right and take our time which may be an unusual stand in today’s norms.
We are not at a liberty to reveal the actual traffic numbers (a Google tradition). However, nowadays one can go to places like compete.com and get the estimates of visits to a Web site. We did it for you in comparison with some market players who have been around a while to give you a sense of where things are. Note that services like compete.com are not always accurate due to sampling bias.
We appreciate the followers’ inputs and patience. Semantic search is on its way – an irreversable technological reform – and we promise to deliver it to you in its most honest way.
