It’s the 15th of the month again. And that means its time to update the Techvibes Portland Start-up Index. While there was neither much movement this month—the top 4 remain in the same positions as last month, with AboutUs retaining the #1 spot—nor, apparently, any new sites added to the index, I do find it interesting that two of the most newsworthy companies in the area, Jive and SplashCast, have actually dropped down the list one and two spots, respectively.
Given that the list changes month to month, here’s the ranking, for historical reference. To see the metrics and movement, please visit Techvibes. And, as always, I offer this with the “fruit salad” caveat: This is a very apples and oranges comparison, in terms of companies and products. The other caveat that bears mentioning is that widget- and mobile-based tools often report far lower Alexa and Compete numbers than Web-based services.
So, here’s the list:
[…] SiliconFlorist.com reposts the Techvibes.com listing: Portland Start-up Index for March 2008: AboutUs retains top spot, […]
[…] think there is ever one single good way to rank things, I do have to admit that I find the Portland Start-up Index to be an interesting way of looking at […]
Very fun. Shouldn’t there be some kind of magic conch shell that we pass back and forth for most improved each month?
Did I say, Ryan? Rick, RICK, Rick! My mind is focused on my 8 month old baby at the moment.
SplashCast falling is a result of our two domains, splashcast.net and splashcastmedia.com, now competing with each other. They are stealing views from each each other, which brings them both down. In aggregate, however, our traffic is actually growing faster than ever before.
