Latest UK property portal rankings show strong growth for Zoopla.co.uk

20th Mar 2009

Property portal Zoopla.co.uk, which launched just over one year ago and recently introduced its transformational pay-for-performance agent listings model has seen its website traffic rise a further 8.43 per cent in the past month, according to the latest independent performance results from Nielsen and comScore.

Whilst the top ten UK property portals saw overall unique visitors fall 7.15 per cent in February compared to January, only three of the portals grew their traffic, with the best performers being Zoopla.co.uk and HomesonView.co.uk. Fish4Homes and The Trinity Mirror Network saw the biggest audience declines over the past month.

Alex Chesterman, founder and CEO of Zoopla.co.uk, commented:

"We are delighted with our growth which demonstrates our ability to continue to capture market share through our innovation in the market. We look forward to extending this trend and further closing the gap on the leading players in the coming months."
