The World Famous "Fence Wizard": The 50 most visited Fence Companies on the Internet...

The 50 most visited Fence Companies on the Internet...

The "Wizard 50" is a list of the most visited web sites in the Fence industry. The Fence Wizard has been counting web hits in cyberspace for some time in order to complete the first known Fence Industry traffic list. In doing so we make the following conclusions:
First - It is likely that more than 500,000 prospective fence customers go online each month for product information, company research, and to purchase material from online retailers. Online retailers represent the bulk of the traffic. This is a direct result of the paid advertising they do with google, yahoo, and msn to secure product ads on search engines.
Second - Many of these companies did not exist 1 or 2 years ago - this tells us that online retailing in the fence industry is still growing and new capital is coming in to create some of these companies.
Third - These online retailers are typically competing with Home Depot and Lowe's - meaning that they are pushing inferior product in most cases and often selling products with specs that most of us would refuse to install ....see one of the Fence Wizard's past articles on the subject -click here.

Now without further delay - The "Wizard 50" with traffic totals (these are unique visitors per month as averaged over the past one year)......

What about CertainTeed - They are a huge name in Fence and Deck!

New England Fence and Deck

Fence Wizard said...

Manny,
CertainTeed is indeed a huge name in fence and deck but they also do roofing, siding, windows, and a bunch of other stuff. If we posted them in with the fence only companies they would be #1. There is no method to count the hits to the fence only portion of their website.
Certainteed.com picks up over 73,000 unique visitors per month.

George Garland said...

How do you come up with these stats?
Is there a list somewhere?

Fence Wizard said...

George,
That is a closely held secret - there is no list anywhere else of Fence Industry Websites. This is the first and only. Hope it is helpful for anyone looking to understand the industry and its online presence.

Dear Fence Wizard,

I am curious, in your 12/11 blog posting, you claim to have been
"counting web hits in cyberspace for some time in order to complete the
first known Fence Industry traffic list." Where did you get this data
and how to we know it's valid? Most companies closely guard this type of
information and are unlikely to volunteer it.

Thanks,

Mel

Fence Wizard said...

Mel,

Companies can guard their data all that they want, there are several webtracking sites that count unique hits and rank sites whether they like it or not. I am paid member to several of them but still had to compile and test my own list of more 300 companies to develop the wizard 50 which I have actually allowed to swell to almost 60 as oversights have been found and added.

Alexa.com and compete.com
are two of the free resources for this.

Thanks for your question,
The Fence Wizard

They have a champifence.com listed for what they consider the best local web page???? It has a 0 page rank, no links, hidden text at the bottom, gets hardly any visitors??? I just don't get it. And what are you guys talking about..."a closely held secret"??? Just go to quantcast or a million other sites like that. Firstfence.com

Carol said...

We are excited to see Productionfenceworks.com up there next year. They have a new site and are already getting over 2000 page views per day! Keep an eye on them!

Mike Caruso said...

You forgot FenceTown which would easily be in the Top 15 fence sites on the Web.

John R said...

Many of these I notice are suppliers, however, do you think it is possible for a Fence Company in Michigan to ever become one of the top 50 visited fence company websites?

Richard said...

What about www.Fences4less.com - they have tons of traffic and rank in the top 5 Search Engine Results pages ... major player you missed.

You have listed so many great names in the fence industry. This will help the people to choose from whom that they should install a fence, when installing a new fence in their properties. Great work. Appreciate this information.

John - Boundary Fence Sales Rep said...

I am glad to see Boundary Fence (buyvinylfence.com) on there as one of the top visited sites to buy vinyl fencing online. As one of their regional sales reps, this is something that I can use when pitching our accomplishments. Thanks!

Paramount Fence & Railing said...

Great List. Wish our <a href="http://www.paramountfenceco.com>Michigan Fence Company</a> could be on that list! That would be a great deal!

Vinyl Fencing in Michigan said...

OOPS. Apologize for the mis-spelling on our previous comment: Great List. Wish our Michigan Fence Company could be on that list! That would be a great deal!

Keelytm said...

Thanks for the awesome list of links. I am looking to install some wholesale vinyl fencing so my dog, Rufus, can run around the yard without escaping. He's pretty good at getting under the chain link I have now, and I heard vinyl would be better because then he can't see outside the yard so he isn't tempted to leave.

Privacy Fence said...

Some people say that good fences make good neighbors. This may be one of the most important concepts of real estate.

jackrider said...

I like the "fence wizard" title. Do you know where I can find a metal fence in Calgary? I'm not sure if I want sheet metal for privacy or just chain link.

katysewell12 said...

Thank you so much for this post! I've been looking for a place to put up a chain link fence in Vancouver .

John Green said...

Where is a good place to go to get a wrought iron fence in Waterloo? I was thinking that surrounding my yard would be a good idea.

Shelly Slader said...

We are about to put in an iron fence in Fort Worth TX. Before we do it, is there anything we should know? Any disadvantages to iron fencing so that we should change our mind on the material?

John Howard said...

Looks like there are a lot of fence companies here. I was wondering if you know of any iron fencing in Chicago, IL that I could look up. Thanks.

Kat Brennan said...

I've been looking for metal fencing in Calgary. I want to get one up before winter rolls around!

I have been looking to re-do my fence. It is pretty beat up and I really need a new fence. Can someone help? I do not know where to start.

Dane Kimball said...

Thanks for this. I'm trying to find someone who does fences and driveway gates in Vancouver. My fences and gate look like a tornado almost ripped them out of the ground.

My friend told me about a really good company that does chainlink fences and more in Chicago, IL. They do both commercial and residential fences.

Ron Johnson said...

I didn't know there was such competition between fencing companies online. I wonder where this data was collected from in order to decide which fencing companies were the most popular. I don't see a several fencing companies that I am most familiar with.
Ron Johnson | J.C. Fence Co.

Thiago daLuz said...

Wow, I didn't know there were any compilations like this on the web. This is really handy, because we're replacing our fence in a month or two. Hopefully one of these contractors is in our area! Thiago | http://www.pacificfence.com/
