We Listened – Geolocation Functionality Now With Major Speed Improvements

May 28, 2008

We heard your feedback about the wait involved for geolocating objects or people on our site. Our programmers spent a great deal of time working on improvements that greatly improve the speed of our geolocation functionality. 

We have detailed geolocation data for 83 countries live and now almost all town level data is returned in under one second. The state of California is the laggard at just over 1.5 seconds. This removes a huge adoption obstacle for us as geolocating videos, member profiles, or real estate shows had often previously involved a 15-20 second wait – a virtual eternity in internet time but we had bigger programming fish to fry at the time.

We’ll continue to focus on making performance improvements in a number of different areas over the coming days and weeks.  Go ahead and give it a try either while uploading a video (http://upload.vidlisting.com) or geolocating your member profile, videos, and real estate shows on our social networking site (http://catalog.vidlisting.com)
