Yes. The thought of MyPriceIndia started with making yet another Price Comparison portal. The initial thought was to make a quick semi-usable semi-content-farm that would make us some good ad revenue. We booked the domain and once we got serious about doing this we realised the competition is big. Existing usable sites are failing to content farms when it comes to SEO and SEO is what will bring the free fresh traffic. But then content farm won’t last long. Google changes search algo every month and the target is too beat the content farms in their dirty game.
A couple of networking events later we came know about more competitors that are in Alpha stage. Over all it was clear that the initial thought wouldn’t work. We have to make a “good product” if we are thinking of making it big and long term. It will take time and may not mean immediate revenue but it will be worth taking the pain for.
In the past few days we’ve worked on minor features that we think will help us stand out. We don’t know if that will work but then the fact that the team is ready for it would make it easier. The motto of the site is to help you buy. Not limiting to price comparison between online stores but to help you compare products. MyPriceIndia would be the ultimate destination “before you buy”.
We aim to have everything that can be bought online and offline to be listed on MyPriceIndia. To start with we will have 4 popular categories.
