Note the red line increasing left to right, showing that ClustrMaps has eclipsed both Frappr and Platial, at least in terms of monthly visits (according to Compete ) and/or page views (according to Alexa in the image further below).
Sure, we appreciate that our geolocation tools are addressing different niches, and that we have other esteemed rivals in the narrower space of geographical/map-based hit counter widgets, and that much depends on which statistics and which sources you look at! However, we are extremely heartened by these graphs, which you can confirm directly by visiting the respective sources and typing in the respective domain names [or visiting this Compete permalink for the graph above, and this Alexa permalink for the graph below].
This is tremendous news for us, especially since ClustrMaps is a closely held privately-financed small startup, whereas both Platial/Frappr (the former owns the latter) are heavily-financed by external investment, and have based much of their respective business models on their huge number of page views (e.g. numbers widely touted when Platial purchased Frappr). We haven’t done much boasting in this space, and have been a bit protective of our registered user numbers (OK, it’s well into six figures), even though certain statistics are deducible from sources like the ones quoted here. Well, soon it’s going to be time to start boasting. Onward and upward!
