During the past two weeks you will have noticed that our web sites have been serving very slowly, this problem has now been fixed with all 4Square Media sites being move to a brand new server.
The problem was caused by a dramatic increase in traffic to SmartHouse, Channel News and SmartOffice web sites.
SmartHouse which achieved over 7M page views in 2007 has already attracted over 3.5M page views during the first three months of 2008 from over 1.8M unique sessions.
ChannelNews which was rolled out in February of 2008 has seen an increase in traffic of over 1000% during March and April over our previous trade web site SmartHouse News. SmartOffice which attracts on average over 176,000 unique visitors a month has grown 22%.
To facilitate future growth 4Square Media has just commissioned NEC to build a brand new enterprise server for our network. Set to be built in Japan the server will go online in July to coincide with the role out of two new 4Square Media web sites including a brand new video serving operation.
In 2008 4Square Media will across all of our trade business and consumer sites grow traffic by over 100%.
