Zoopla.co.uk confirmed as number two UK property website
14th Apr 2010
According to the latest figures from Nielsen, which tracks internet traffic, Zoopla.co.uk was the second most-visited property website in the UK in March, behind only Rightmove. And the Nielsen stats confirm the recently released comScore figures, which show that Zoopla.co.uk grew at a far greater pace in March than its rivals.
Overall audience figures for UK property websites were up 10.4% in March compared to February, reflecting the positive signs in the market and an end to the worse than usual winter weather. However, unique user figures to Zoopla.co.uk reported by Nielsen show an impressive 28.8% month-on-month growth in March, placing its audience size firmly ahead of both Findaproperty and Primelocation.
Alex Chesterman, Founder & CEO of Zoopla.co.uk said: "The Nielsen figures are a good sign for the market in general with house-hunter interest growing significantly from February. Obviously we are delighted that more and more house-hunters every month are turning to Zoopla.co.uk to help them make the property related decisions."
