So our biggest release since we launched was pushed live last Friday 18th at around 09:30. The site was down for around 10 hours whilst we migrated the data and the new code over and tested the application on the live servers. This release will be followed by more frequent updates to the site to improve the experience for buyers and sellers. We highlighted some of the upcoming changes in the third design post and this work has already started.
We were overwhelmed by the positive response to the new release. Below are just some of the tweets we received in the hours and days following the launch:
It’s early days but comparing four days after launch with the previous week, we saw more unique visitors and a lower bounce rate which is really encouraging.
The document Site Re-design Changes in support outlines some of the changes to the new site which people contacting us about. It’s worth having a look at that to see what has changed and why.
Thank you again for all your feedback.
