"Data on the geographic origin of page views concerning the websites from the aforementioned countries may be a significant source of information about the business potential or most appropriate development paths. The recent years have seen a boom in small companies' activities, as they are crossing the geographic boundaries. Thanks to the Internet, such obstacles have practically vanished" comments Tomasz Lechowicz, business advisor at Gemius, a company assisting entrepreneurs in utilizing the internet for business purposes.
