“The reach of technology is endless;
it’s really a matter of the trouble you take.”
This is generally the season of limbo, when racing shifts from the Cape’s “Sizzling Summer” to Gauteng’s Champions’ season, and you’d expect the airwaves to be on the sombre side. But the Summerhill website, having just posted a new domestic record on the Alexa ratings last month (position 765,) establishing a new international high this month on 139,943. We keep reminding ourselves where we are in this remotest of worlds, and the unlikelihood of attracting the visitors we do, especially when compared with some of the breeding behemoths of the world.
Last month, when we posted our new domestic record, we investigated the identities of those ahead of us, and the vast bulk are companies whose business is generated principally on the internet. There are not too many operations outside of that field generating our traffic, and we remain a country mile ahead of anyone in our field internationally.
Just goes to show, the reach of technology is endless; it’s really a matter of the trouble you take.
