WEST CHESTER, PA — MyChesCo, a hyperlocal community and social media website, announced their two-year anniversary serving Chester County, Pennsylvania. Founded by entrepreneur Timothy Alexander, MyChesCo began as a website geared toward uniting Chester County’s people, services, and companies with simple, convenient, and easy to use communication and marketplace tools.
“I am proud of the remarkable growth MyChesCo experienced in its second year,” said Alexander. “Our website has evolved from a small start-up to a premier news and information platform for Chester County. MyChesco is committed to informing, inspiring and engaging Chester County’s communities through informative content and social engagement.”
MyChesCo’s internet traffic rose from an average of roughly 3,200 unique visitors per day in 2018 to nearly 7,500 unique visitors per day in 2019, with over 3.3 million page views monthly. This is reflected in MyChesCo’s Alexa Rank, which shows it is currently the 24,664th most visited website in the United States and 117,685th most visited website in the World. This is an impressive achievement for a hyperlocal website serving just one county in Pennsylvania. Reviewing the most visited websites in the United States can provide valuable insight into this metric.
“I believe the reason behind our success is the dedication to our Core Values and the passion, motivation, integrity, and expertise which we are able to celebrate with this 2-year milestone,” added Alexander. “Our vision is to be the most effective community-focused communication and marketplace platform available, and we are proud to say that we are achieving just that. The past two years have been filled with remarkable growth thanks to dedication, an honest and straightforward business approach, and a deep understanding of the communities we serve.”
MyChesCo is information-oriented around Chester County, Pennsylvania, with its primary focus directed toward the concerns of local communities. The website concentrates on very specialized topics, such as events, job opportunities, news stories and issues of primary interest to members and visitors. So, for example, local businesses, civic or charitable groups, schools, religious organizations, scouts and other organizations receive prominent coverage. MyChesCo also provides limited coverage to national, state, and regional issues due to local interest and impact.
MyChesCo invites you to submit locally relevant guest articles and press releases. “Our core mission is to serve Chester County with an innovative communication and marketplace platform, particularly for citizen journalism, and to promote conversation that helps us understand and make the most of the dramatic changes sweeping our county,” Alexander notes.
