Trade Ideas LLC Reports Trade-Ideas.com’s Record-Breaking Traffic for May – 5 Month Increase of 200%

SAN DIEGO, CA – Trade Ideas LLC reported today that for May, Trade-Ideas.com achieved a traffic record of 90,000 pageviews, a 217% increase from May 2005, according to internal data. The previous monthly record was set in January when Trade-Ideas.com had 46,000 pageviews, a 30% increase from January of last year. Average unique visitors per day increased to 2200 in May, up 60% from the previous year.

"The real-time pattern recognition and Idea Generation Technology (IGT) of Trade-Ideas.com continued to attract a niche audience interested in technical analysis of the markets, including volume, volatility, and price-based indicators," said David Aferiat, Managing Partner, Trade-Ideas.com. "The record that we experienced in May reflects the overwhelming response received from our development of free, streaming content for the many financial portals on the internet and in the blogosphere."

Financial portals around the world cut and paste simple HTML code right from the page of options on the Trade-Ideas web site to embed real-time information (during North American market hours) into their pages. The information from Trade-Ideas improves two key measures of a website’s relevance: length of time on site/featured pages and % of return visitors. Unlike the Trade-Ideas subscription based service, this container is free and retrieves arbitrary samples from the alert database during the day’s market action. The samples update continuously and refresh every 30 seconds.

“These partnerships produce real tangible benefits to our portal partners”, comments Dan Mirkin, Senior Managing Partner of Trade-Ideas. “Our unique market information instantly adds value to our partners’ content by giving their viewers a taste of actionable, streaming, technical analysis. The content from Trade-Ideas turns visitors into repeat readers.”

Trade-Ideas.com's blog and RSS feeds represented the fastest growing pages visited in May, posting a 319% increase year over year in pageviews. Working with permission-based services like FeedBlitz.com, many individuals now regularly receive blog posts directly via email.
