Lykas in protte minsken ûnderskatte ik de krêft fan ChaCha, In soad minsken tochten dat ChaCha in gek eksperimint west hat. Minsken hawwe grapke oer de ChaCha-gidsen dy't gewoan dingen op Google sykje en dêrmei reagearje.
Nau gearwurkje mei Scott Jones en ChaCha is rap, útdaagjend, leuk ... en beleanjend west. ChaCha draait in hoek ... en minsken begjinne te merken, De folgjende moanne by ChaCha sil noch spannender wêze as de lêste ... dit beloof ik dy!
Wat ChaCha hat sammele is ien fan 'e rapste en meast folsleine fraach- en antwurddatabases op it ynternet. Guon fragen binne hûnderten as tûzenen kearen steld ... en ChaCha hoecht it fersyk net mear te ferifiearjen, se kinne it gewoan leverje.
The numbers are pretty amazing… over a million requests answered a day. Over 4.5 million Chuck Norris joke requests alone! It's not all fun and games, though. ChaCha has real-time answers on what's happening in Haiti, hoe grut is it universum, as praktyske antwurden lykas hoe kinne jo gom út jo hier of it adres krije of tillefoannûmer foar in bedriuw.
ChaCha.com continues to grow in traffic as well – not just from direct requests but from the search engines themselves. Even Google has noticed how good ChaCha's answers are – search engine growth continues to rise. The site is now the largest Indiana website for traffic and has oertroffen in protte leafdes op sosjale media yn Silicon Valley.
Ask ChaCha a trivia question and you'll probably get a pretty good response, as well! Try it yourself by texting a question to 242242 or calling 1-800-224-2242 (242242 spells ChaCha). Or you can test out a new widget I built in my sidebar. (Note: There's still some clean-up to do on it – like figuring out why IE sometimes doesn't like it!).
Wylst Google in goed yndekseare databank hat sammele fan wêr te finen antwurden op ynternet, ChaCha hat de antwurden eins fûn. That's no easy feat. As the database gets larger and the number of users of the system grows, you'll notice the quality of responses is growing as well. It's not perfect – but ChaCha is a tool that, when used correctly, can be quite an asset to have!
ChaCha also has insight into trends (to the left is a dashboard I've also built). Twitter trends is what people are talking about, Google trends is what people are trying to find… and ChaCha has the exact questions that people are asking. That's pretty valuable information – something that ChaCha is also beginning to realize. Of course it was probably something that Jones et Investors understood all along.
Folsleine iepenbiering: ChaCha is in wichtige kliïnt fan my.
