DENVER, Jan. 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MassRoots, Inc. (OTCQB:MSRT), one of the largest and fastest growing technology platforms for the cannabis industry, is pleased to announce it has significantly increased its web traffic month over month, growing to 624,000 page views and 81,000 unique visitors from December 13, 2015 to January 12, 2016. Separately, MassRoots’ blog grew to 181,000 page views and 122,000 unique visitors over the same time period.
“The release of MassRoots’ web platform in late November opened up an entire new growth and revenue channel for the Company. We started indexing the public content from MassRoots on Google, introduced the first version of dispensary discovery, and are actively monetizing the platform through sponsored posts and featured user placement,” stated MassRoots CEO Isaac Dietrich. “We’re currently experiencing rapid user growth, increasing amounts of web traffic, and rising page and app screen views – we expect that all of these metrics could allow us to attract more advertisers and generate more revenue from existing ones. If we experience continued and consistent increases in these metrics, we anticipate that our monthly revenues will also continue to grow, especially when localized advertising features come online later this quarter.“
From December 10, 2015 to January 13, 2016, shares of MassRoots’ common stock sold in a private placement at $0.75 per share from June to July 2015 became eligible for resale under Rule 144. The only subsequent round of financing after the $0.75 private placement was a registered offering in November 2015 that was immediately eligible for resale.
