    It works decently as far as the price it gives up but...it needs some help.

    1)My taxi costs,as well as most in us, are calculated in Miles not Kilometers. It should have an option to switch between the 2?

    2) I don't have different rates for night and day. Most cabs in USA do not. I could see having it as an option in the admin panel for those that do but not needed.

    3)its funny that the estimates it gives out are close because its not really how we calculate rides.
    The meter starts at $2.60+.40 every 1/8th of a mile plus $28 an hour waiting time. This site handles it rather accurately.

    4)So this is totally not needed for me to use this plugin but I was thinking it has potential to be a SERP killer. Google like fresh content right? So if every time someone estimated a taxi ride it created a new post page with a unique url etc based on the query that would be great! Make it super awesome? Have it ajax in some unique related content. Videos yelp pages whatever all in different fields on the post page. This is a fantasy request but.. what the hell.

    It's a great idea, but the part where you're counting on previous searches as google friendly content is probably not going to work....with all similar search results, it's probably going to count as a single page, repeated...

    But the product is a neat idea, especially where you have the know-how. Also, a cab driver is elite SEO member! You probably have some great stories to tell ;)

    If when it creates a new post it bases the urls and keywords off of every new search it will be unique right?
