Saratoga.com Turns Six!

Local Web Guide To Saratoga Springs NY Celebrates 6th Anniversary

SARATOGA NY, August 13, 2008 – Saratoga.com, a local news and information guide to Saratoga Springs NY, turned six years old on August 4, 2008. The local guide caters to the seasonal racing crowd as well as year round visitors and Saratoga residents.

“I remember when we first launched Saratoga.com six years ago,” said Sara Mannix, Founder and CEO of Mannix Marketing, Inc. “It was only a one-page site with a very simple design. Now we have thousands of pages, daily updates, fun articles, restaurant coupons and so much more to offer the Saratoga community.”

Site developers and marketing specialists have improved the cosmetics and functionality of Saratoga.com throughout the years to be more appealing and user-friendly. The addition of an events calendar, local news articles, real estate listings and most recently the movies section, draws visitors again and again to Saratoga.com.

“Visitors rave about having everything all in one place,” said Jennifer VanScoy, Director of Portal Marketing. “They want to know what time breakfast is at the Track, when the Victorian Streetwalk is, where to go for dinner tonight, who is playing at SPAC this fall. They know they can find it all at Saratoga.com.”

The site offers detailed information, photos and user reviews for Saratoga hotels, restaurants and other businesses in the area. This and other information for tourists and residents draws more than 125,000 average monthly visitors to Saratoga.com in the off-season and over 550,000 visitors during the summer racing meet.

“I guess six years old in Web years would be like 30 in human years,” said VanScoy. “It’s a milestone, but you still have a lot of ground to cover. So much has changed since 2002, and we’re looking forward to many more improvements in the years ahead.”
