Zoopla.co.uk growth continues to outpace rivals in March
12th Apr 2010
The latest figures released by comScore, which measures web traffic, show that the number of unique visitors to Zoopla.co.uk grew at a far higher rate in March than its main competitors as it continued its ascent in market share.
Whilst March showed positive signs for the overall online property sector, with unique visitors to all UK property websites combined up by 5.8%, Zoopla.co.uk stood out as the only one of the main portals to achieve double-digit growth (16%) month-on-month. Rightmove growth remained much in line with the market at 6.1%, whilst Primelocation and Findaproperty lagged the market with modest audience growth on February's figures of only 2.4% and 1.3% respectively.
Alex Chesterman, Founder & CEO of Zoopla.co.uk said: "The latest figures again confirm Zoopla.co.uk as the fastest-growing UK property portal and, having recently celebrated 2 years since our launch, we are obviously delighted with our market position and the scale of our audience relative to some of our rivals who have been around for almost 10 years."
