    Organic Traffic of Local Corp (46% of Total Traffic) and Total Traffic of Zillow are equal, but Zillow has with 1,850 million

    the 48-fold market-cap of the idiotic low market-cap of Local Corp of only 38 million.

    The biggest sensation: Organic Traffic of Local Corp was 46% in Q1/2013

    Organic Traffic and Direct Revenues produce no cost of revenues and this 46% are a Big Progress on the Way to 50/50 in 2013 and an important step to build a more defensible and sustanainable business

    Development of Organic Traffic/Monthly Unique Visitors (MUVs):

    2010: 88 million = 31% of total traffic

    2011: 117 million = 33% of total traffic

    2012: 155 million = 37% of total traffic

    Q1/2013 = 46% (49 million in the first quarter or 196 million in the year by an extrapolation)

    Goal: 50% of total traffic

    16.3 million Monthly Unique Visitors from Organic Traffic (total Monthly Unique Visitors of Local Corp in Q1 was in the average 35.4 Monthly Unique Visitors on the flagshipsite and the network) of Local Corp wasn't reached in total from a lot of competitors with billion-market-caps. For example: Only the organic traffic of Local Corp was equal with the total traffic of Zillow.

      Local Corp Issues FY 2013 Guidance; Revenue Guidance In Line With Analysts' Estimates

      Thursday, 9 May 2013 04:15pm EDT
      Local Corp announced that for fiscal 2013, it expects revenue of between $93 million and $95 million and adjusted EBITDA to be at least $5 million. According to I/B/E/S Estimates, analysts are expecting the Company to report revenue of $95 million and EBITDA of $5.80 million for fiscal 2013

    • So we are feeling comfortable with that at this point, yes - and Flankenking, too, with his now 77,800 shares of Local Corp

      Joel Achramowicz – Merriman Capital

      You have a good start to the year obviously. Do you still feel comfortable? You had projected previously that you might be able to have some nice maybe $4 million to $5 million in EBITDA and cash flow for the year. Do you still feel comfortable you might be able to achieve that this year?

      Heath B.Clarke

      Yeah, we’re reiterating our guidance of $5 million and adjusted earnings for the year and mid point revenues are about $94 million. So we are feeling comfortable with that at this point, yes.
