Advantages:

- Wide range of topics covered: The site addresses political, financial, domestic, international, lifestyle, sports and astrology venues reassuring an ample influx of visitors (466,406 between June 2017 and July 2017).

- Google News approval: The site has been officially accepted by Google as a news provider, the highest form of accreditation amongst news portals.

- Significant growth rate: Within a year and three months the site has managed to achieve a stellar 1,206,693 page views, a solid basis for substantial advertisement-derived profit. The immense growth rates of both new and returning visitors increase concurrently,

independently (16% and 119% correspondingly

between January 2017 and June 2017) with a faster trend for returning visitors displaying enthusiasm and forecasting a vast

audience in the years to follow. Interestingly, its Alexa rank in

Greece went up by 28% since May 2017 while its closest

specified competitor ant1news.gr went down by 7% .



- Lack of trading department: The current revenue is the minimum and based only on 3

annual contracts. The trading potential is yet to be exploited through the introduction of an organized sales department rendering numerous advertisement agreements with interested parties. This will ensue substantial profits dictated by the site’s specifications.



- Drupal: This is one of the top open-source Content Management Frameworks with an over 100,000-member contributing community. Drupal is designed to permit frequent updates from contributors all over the globe thus providing for faster and easier website management.



- All expenses are flexible: The staff and bill layout is flexible enough to incorporate alternate monetary and organizational approaches. For instance, choosing a more economical location and merging editorial tasks can reduce running expenses.



- General traffic sources: Almost all traffic comes from organic search and direct (63% and 32% respectively, June 12th 2017 reading) URL typing permitting enormous growth potential through paid traffic. Moreover, Google search engine is the source of all organic traffic through excellent SEO performance. The site’s ever rising popularity is represented by the two-fold increase of direct visitors in only 4 months.



- Social traffic is minimum: In the unlikely event a social medium labels high site traffic as 'spam', the ratings eventually do go down. In contrast, if traffic

is not based on social media, the ratings are immune to alterations of its regulations. Nevertheless, careful exploitation of social media can render substantial traffic and consequent profit.



- Most traffic is from Greece: Permits absolute control of Greek advertiser's targets and clientele.



- The layout provides for user-friendly navigation. Mobile interface is under development.



- Training of next keeper is available.
