Toledo.com is the premiere online portal for people who live, work & play in the Greater Toledo area. With well over 200,000 unique visitors per month, Toledo.com has quickly proven it reflects both the personality and interests of the Toledo marketplace at large - in essence, it is Toledo online. It has fast become a favorite website for Toledoans as well as an invaluable resource for local advertisers seeking affordable, innovative ways to reach their target audience.

Overview

Thrive has been building the Toledo.com websites since 1998 when it was a single page that received only 1000 visits a month. Three redesigns later the sits is better than ever.  Packed with many high-end features and easy to navigate.

Since early 2014, a majority of the site's traffic has become mobile based. So more people visit the website on a mobile device than a desktop. Our challenge was to create a fast loading site that is very content rich. Toledo.com's home page has over 60 server queries alone. The Thrive team was able to create a very robust site that loads quickly on all devices and is easy to navigate.
