Despite the fact that this is one of the slowest times of the year for ticket sales, Tickifieds is pleased to report record levels of traffic over the past 7 days. Although, traffic is not quite where it was prior to Google’s infamous “Penguin” update, we are getting really really close to being able to call it a full recovery. Although One Direction is responsible for a good chunk of traffic, we saw some major gains made by other events. Most notable of the bunch are the rodeo events (the Houston, San Antonio, and Austin Rodeos) and the NFL Playoffs (AFC and NFC Championship Games).
Even more encouraging is the diversity and depth of keywords that are bringing traffic to our event ticket classifieds. Many events big and small listed at Tickifieds are again appearing on the first page of the search results within minutes or being listed. So stay tuned as the Tickifieds Top 10 is about to get even more competitve….watch our One Direction!
