Up from 60 Unique visitors a month to 120-164 unique visitors a month. I have also picked up a Triga sale and a Triga rental from internet traffic. I worked with a different company for 10 years and never received one piece of business from internet traffic. So receiving two pieces of business inside of two months from Hereschicago.com is huge, (Sales came in July and August from the web). I'm happy with the Here's Chicago listing because I can clearly see an increase in web traffic. I will be building a renewal of our contract into my advertising budget. Thank you, Ben Palmer
