Online car rental comparison website Carhire.co.uk confirms their busiest month for online usage. This comes after several improvements were made to make the site faster during February and March.
A spokesmen for Carhire.co.uk, Terry Exley commented: “we reduced the total downloaded bytes from 438 kilobytes to just 219 kilobytes. Whilst the original download size of the sites homepage wasn’t particularly large at all, especially when you compare it to some of the webs other leading travel extras homepages, we believe it’s a case of the smaller the better. This has caused the sites overall load time to decrease substantially and all visitor related stats have improved”
To offer a perspective of the amount of downloaded kilobytes when visiting carhire.co.uk, one of the webs top comparison sites: http://www.cheap.co.uk has 873 of kilobytes to be downloaded, around four times the figure.
The sites viewing data shows a remarkable increase in visitor numbers, a rise of 105% is seen for total site visitors in March 2012 when compared to January 2012. Of course this can be partly contributed to summer approaching and an increase in the interest of car hire with travellers looking to get away during the summer months. However an impressive increase in total visitors can be seen when also comparing March 2011 with March 2012, this saw a rise of 71%.
Improvements were also seen in the average page views per visit which rose by 1.6 pages per visitor overall and bounce rate which decreased 20% (over January 2012 data). Particularly
