Thanks to Alexa Traffic Monitoring we have a little benchmark on this sites to help us see how they compare againts each other. Before I dive into these sites one by one and discuss their strong points and shortcomings
Which I will have to wait for my next post, Lets take a deep look at what we see in the alexa graphs.
What I can infer from these graphs are as follows
- None of these sites are major presently, as it seems they have yet to make an impact on the web top 100,000 site list. They sometimes make brief appearances, with the exception of Caramellounge.com
- Caramellounge.com leads the pack by far with Afriqueka.com following but quite far behind. The other 2 its kinda hard to tell as they don't have that much stats
- From the thumbnails, Afrinity I would say looks best but on further inspection that is easily disputed
- As am looking at social network scripts it and Phpfox happens to be a popular one. I notice that MyAfricaSite.com has not been redesigned or modified and its just a plain simple installation of the script
