WEBSITEPULSE™ REPORTS THAT POPULAR TAX WEBSITES HAVE MET LATE E-FILERS' EXPECTATIONS
Orlando, FL - (April 19, 2006) - WebSitePulse - a leading provider of global, independent and remote web monitoring of web-based and e-mail systems, web applications and e-business transactions announced today that the leading tax websites offered uninterrupted and consistently reliable services to the late e-filers over the two weeks prior to April 17th.
According to the IRS, as of Thursday, April 13th, on-line filing was up 15 percent compared to the same period last year - the greatest growth for e-file among those filing from a home computer. Twelve of the most popular tax websites - based on last years' increase in traffic data and overall search engine visibility - were monitored by WebSitePulse between April 1st and 17th. Performance was measured for a typical 3-step web-transaction, every 15 minutes, from the San Francisco, Chicago, and Washington DC monitoring locations, to best reflect the End Users experience. The results were summarized, published daily and offered to the public in the WebSitePulse Performance and Uptime Reports and through RSS feeds.
"We are pleased to report that all monitored tax websites performed without interruptions or major deviations from their normal response times during the last two weeks of the 2006 tax season" - says Iavor Marinoff, CEO of WebSitePulse. "Usually, their traffic increases between 20 and 100% during this time of the year but their websites, web systems and applications offered reliable access and consistently high-quality services to the large crowds of late e-filers" - concludes Mr. Marinoff.
WebSitePulse continues its efforts to provide the Internet community with public information about the performance of popular online destinations during National Holidays and other important events through its Performance and Uptime Reports, and so far, data about the 2005 Holiday Season, 2006 Valentine's Day, and 2006 Tax Season are available on the company's website.
