Since we track thousands of deals from hundreds of sites, we have a ton of data that can be broken down into answers.
By providing these answers, consumers can use them to find deal sites like the ones they love and it can also help them make smarter buying decisions.
Below is a list of questions that Track Daily Deal provides answers to at this time:
How well is the site ranked amongst competing sites?
Rank is based on how many people visit a site. Sites that are visited more often are more popular, right? This information alone can definitely help people find some of the best daily deal sites on the web, but it doesn’t end here.
How often does the site add new deals?
Sites that have good deals, sell out fast. Sites that have a huge following also add new deals on a regular basis to keep their customers coming back for more. With this data, people can figure out whether a particular site offers deals that are actually good enough to keep people coming back for more.
When are new deals added?
If a site offers awesome deals and always sells out, knowing when new deals are added is very important because it can help you avoid missing out on bargains that you might otherwise miss out on.
What can you expect to pay for the deals?
Let’s face it, if you are on a tight budget, you are not going to check out sites that sell highly priced items. Instead, you are likely looking for a deal that will only cost a couple of dollars. Our data can help you find a deal site that fits your budget.
How much can you expect to save?
Some of us don’t want to waste our time tracking deals which don’t offer much of a discount. After all, time is money and some of us would prefer to spend a little more money so that we can save time. Of course, when the savings are worth more than our time, it’s obvious which of the two we’d likely be willing to spend.
Are there any deal sites out there that offer similar deals?
When you like a certain site, you are likely interested in finding sites that are similar. We can help you find those sites by comparing them based on: the type of deals being offered, category that the deals are being offered in, site rank and site type.

As you can see, information from the social networks has also been added because as a consumer, knowing what others have to say about a business is very important and it can save consumers a lot of frustration.
Additionally, this information can also prove to be valuable to merchants. For example, if you are looking to take the plunge with a new daily deal site, it makes sense to look into what it truly takes to make that business successful prior to launching the site.
One question that comes up quite often:
Why do most new deal sites fail to become popular with consumers?
Well a lot of our data tells us that it’s mainly due to sites not adding new deals on a daily basis. Which makes sense, right? I mean as a consumer, I expect to see a new deal being added every day — isn’t that the whole purpose of a deal a day site?
Well you’d think that it is, but there are actually quite a few sites out there that leave the same deal up for days.
Of course other factors such as type of deals being offered, price range, savings, customer service, accuracy of descriptions and social following play a role as well.
