Now that we've launched the new Techvibes site, we're making a couple of changes to the Techvibes Start-Up Indexes that will go into effect on September 1st. Have a read:
Publish date: The indexes will now all be published in the 1st of the month based on data from the last day of the previous month.
Cities versus Regions: We'll publish city-specific indexes for all the cities that we're currently covering. So, say Goodbye to the Alberta index and Hello to seperate indexes for Calgary and Edmonton. As a result, we'll be adding a Seattle Start-Up Index to the mix on September 1st as well.
Getting on the Index: Commenting on a previous start-up index blog post will be longer be sufficient. If you want to be included in a start-up index, follow these two simple steps: 1) add your company to our directory and 2) send us an email letting us know that you'd like to be considered. A little more formal, but still super-easy.
Techvibes Traffic Rank: We'll continue using traffic ranking data from both Alexa and Compete (and other services that make sense in the future) but will publish only one number in the index, our hybrid Techvibes Traffic Rank.
Look out for the September Start-Up Indexes on Monday, Septmeber 1st and be sure to follow steps 1 & 2 above before 11:59pm on August 31st.
