    There was such a question: is the calculator on the site really able to attract more target customers?Do you use calculators on your sites and how did they help you? I found recently such a service called uCalc, where it is described that the calculator can increase sales and positions in the search engines. Is it really? I would be glad if you share your experience.

    It depends on the type of business. For example, mortgage lenders use a calculator so visitors can determine what their monthly payment would be, and contractors can use it to estimate the cost of a repair or remodeling job. In other cases, it's a gimmick that is really unnecessary - you can add it as a gimmick, but not having one is not going to make much difference. The site you mentioned above claims that it can give you better SEO rankings, but I don't see how it would make much of a difference without more details about how it would accomplish that.

    Maybe increase sales but not your ranking.

    Just tried the uCalc site and it just hangs. That's not a good omen.

    Thank you. In any case, the service seemed interesting to me. I want to experiment and check.

    Strangely, the site was constantly working stably. Maybe you messed up the address?

    I just tried the site and everything works. When I first tried it a few days ago, I thought it froze, but discovered there was a section underneath the "Examples" links that I didn't notice until I scrolled down.

    I didn't even get that. The site just hung for me. But now it's working again
