    Some interesting statistics about

    LawnSite ranks #1 overall in the lawn and landscape category on the internet based on traffic to the site, number of unique users on the site, amount of time spent by the users on the site, the number of links other sites have that lead to, and the site's availability in regard to the many different search engines. is one of the largest commercial industry sites in regard to a forum with number of members registered at the site and the number of users that visit the site (but never register).

    Aside from companies who market to homeowners (John Deere, Sears, Home Depot, TruGreen, etc...) reaches more of its target audience members on a daily basis than any other green industry site on the internet - not just forum sites, but all green industry related sites.

    LawnSite has had almost 1 3/4% of its users on line at one time several different times (almost 400 users with over 24,000 registered) which is an extremely high number for a commercial related forum. There are other sites that claim statistically they have had "X" number of members on the site at one time, but they are allowing their stat trackers to include "bots" that monitor sites for the search engines - not a real indication of actual people.

    (This is one of my favorites) is the 29,112 most popular web site on the entire internet - the entire internet! has "trust-ranking" of 10 out of a possible 10, which means in regard to problems reported about the site, complaints, etc...

    In February 2003 LawnSite had 7,890 members (give or take, I forget exact number), and today less than 2 years later has almost 25,000 members - one of the top 5 fastest "growth spurts" amongst commercial forums.

    And here is the last one....which I am not sure about because it was emailed to me as an extra note with some simplified math attached....supposedly there is more content at than an entire set of Encyclopedias.... crazy, huh?

    All of these cool stats are possible becasue of our members. We have to be one of, if not the coolest online community there is! I want to personally thank the members for finding, using, and coming back to LawnSite again and again. Your involvement is helping better this industry one business owner at a time!

    There appear to be many viewers each day just viewing and leaving like myself.

    The majority of the postings and questions come from a minority. I find threads that are interesting but ultimately find out that info or advice is coming from a part time LCO or school aged or a one man outfit.

    My partner and I have grown over 300K this year with 6 weeks left and are booked out 2 weeks. We should hit 7 figures with good weather and are dealing with the rapid growth flow, experienced crews, pricing startegies, should we buy that 100k+ piece of equipment.

    At the risk of being flamed, grumbling over getting $25 or $30 a cut, agonizing over mulching or bagging leaves, and not letting your customers walk over you, don't lend themselves to improving an existing business like ours.

    We keep 15 families employed, both latino and anglo, and information on how to enhance our business is critical. Could there be a forum or sub forum on mid size companies and problems we incur on a regular basis.
    Thank you
