On June 13th Google introduced Google Website, their single page web builder for (very) small businesses, worldwide. The product had been in testing since last year and appears to be targeted primarily at developing countries. How is it going two weeks on? How many sites have been built?
I have been tracking the daily increase in the results for the query: site:business.site and recording the changes. Since introduction roughly ~100,000 new websites have been created.
This works out to roughly 7300 new pages per day since introduction. Hundred thousand here, a hundred thousand there… soon it adds up to real numbers.
Do you think Google is happy with the numbers?
