On the 7th of June 2008, the first article on MobilityNigeria was published.
From the 82 unique visitors and 1,127 page views registered in that month, MobilityNigeria has grown in leaps and bounds to register 9,610 unique visitors and 16,874 page views in December 2009.
In addition, WebTrends Nigeria, a site that monitors and ranks Nigerian websites currently ranks Mobility Nigeria as number 31 in the country.
Other statistics of this website are available on our Contact page.
To be honest, the traffic between June and December 2008 was not quite encouraging, but we remember that Yomi and Dayo just kept going.
The entire team at the office sincerely thank our regulars here for helping to make this site the vibrant place that it has become. Can we also ask for your suggestions on how to make Mobility Nigeria a better resource for you? Please use the comments box to submit your suggestions.
Powered by CDMA?
Incidentally, while the majority of articles on this site have been focused on the GSM side of mobile technology in Nigeria, it is interesting to note that the very first article refered to earlier was Yomi’s escapade with browsing on a CDMA smartphone, the Treo P700 on the Reltel (now ZOOMmobile) network.
We are agreed that there is a need to tip the scales back a bit and put up more information about CDMA-based mobile technology. Expect to see more news, features and reviews from that side of the divide from now. And no; we will not be neglecting GSM in any way at all.
Advertisers, Sponsors, Phone & Manufacturers & Retailers
It takes a lot to keep a website like this going. We have to purchase or trade-in phones (whether we really need them or not) in order to have reviews. We spend huge amounts on purchasing mobile internet access and airtime from time to time in order to stay current with what is happening on various networks. Then, of course, there are web services expenses to take care of.
This is an invitation to advertisers. MobilityNigeria will give your business websites good exposure. You can even decide to sponsor the site. In this case, only your ads will feature on the site and the entire site branded completely to your corporate colours.
We invite phone manufacturers (Samsung, Nokia, and LG – you guys have a presence here in Nigeria) and retailers (even networks too) to step up and provide loan units for reviews. Two or three weeks and we’ll have the loan units returned to you in tip-top shape. Our reviews are good publicity for your products, services and/or shops.
Go ahead, you know we make business sense: email us!
