Wow!…The baby is growing…..

Posted on May 13, 2005. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Is the thought that occurred to me while reading this story by Hitwise on the rising traffic by the meta search engines, the hot topic of the day. Of course, they would report rapid growth – as a baby usually grows in the first months of life!

The important factor is: “how much business are they producing for the sites they cover?” And even more importantly:”is it profitable business?” My guess is that at this stage it is by definition lowest price travel components with minimum or no margin for intermediaries and suppliers. The buyers are most likely the lowest price hunters, or in other words the least brand loyal customers. It will be interesting to see what growth figures are reported in a year from now. Stay tuned….
