The Big Deal:

Rent Jungle traffic has shown a significant increase over the last year ending in our highest traffic numbers ever this November. We know we could not have gotten here without the gracious support of our partners and friends, and we would sincerely like to thank everyone who has lent a hand since our site re-launch in late 2009.

We have been eagerly watching our numbers rise over the year. Our summer peak was about 80,000 unique visitors in August with almost 300,000 page views. Following rental market trends, our numbers dipped in the next few months until we began to see a rise in early October. Since then, our traffic has grown exponentially to over 150,000 unique visitors by the end of November, about twice the level of our previous peak. Our page views rose to 400,000 and are continually increasing.

So what does this mean for Rent Jungle in the holiday season? Typically people do not move in the winter (Google Trends), so Rent Jungle’s traffic should be decreasing at this time.  Instead, our numbers are rising exponentially due to all the support and referrals we have received from all of you – our users.  As the market picks up in January our traffic should sky rocket. We are expecting record numbers in the months that follow, and we are willing to bet December will yield our highest numbers yet. Thanks for checking in, we will keep you posted on our following development!
