The ufindus website has ranked 7th in the Business Directory online industry based on the market share of UK visits it has received for 2006.
The Hitwise UK Top 10 Awards Programme celebrates the most successful UK websites in 160+ online industries. As Hitwise reports on the anonymous online usage and search behaviour of more than 8.43 million UK Internet users—the largest online sample of its kind—this unique awards programme recognises excellence in online performance through public popularity.
With over 1.92 million entries & 1.4 million fully categorised, ufindus is one of the largest UK business directories on the net today.
Ufindus reduces the frustration of fruitless searches by offering web browsers both local and national directory content, presented in a ‘one click away’ style to help assist them in finding the service/product they are searching for quickly and easily.
Mark Hallam, Commercial Director, ufindus, said: “We have always believed that our unique approach in providing an easy to use business directory would prove popular with people searching for goods and services on the internet and this award from Hitwise suggests this to be true.”
“This independent validation by Hitwise will also provide comfort to our customers that ufindus is rapidly becoming the directory of choice with people searching for UK based products and services.”
“If you consider that 4 of the web sites above us in the Hitwise Awards are either specialist search sites, such as Kelly, BT & 192,it suggests that we are the 2nd largest UK products and services directory behind Yell, which is a magnificent achievement given that we have only been operating for 18 months” Mark added.
“This would suggest that our directory formula of ease of use coupled with relevant and targeted information is working.”
