ufindus wins Hitwise UK Top 10 Award

9th May 2008 · Press Releases

Ufindus officially recognised as the 5th most visited UK Business Directory Web Site

ufindus is pleased to announce that it has been named the 5th most visited UK Directory web site by Hitwise Top 10 Awards for the first quarter of 2008.

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, 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.”

“When you consider that most of our peers in the Directory Award category are specialist search sites, it suggests that we are the 2nd largest UK products and services business directory behind Yell, which is an impressive achievement” Mark added.

“This would suggest that our directory formula of ease of use coupled with relevant and targeted information is working.”


Hitwise is the leading online competitive intelligence service. Only Hitwise provides its 1,400 clients around the world with daily insights on how their customers interact with a broad range of competitive websites, and how their competitors use different tactics to attract online customers.
