Popular deal sites – October 2007

Update: for the latest revision of this list go to Popular deal sites - April 2011.

This is October 2007 revision of the Popular Deal Sites list. You can find the last month revision of the list here.

The change in rating shows the difference compared to September results. The list has a total of 28 web sites. There are 53 more in my database that didn’t meet the Alexa Rank < 100,000 requirement.

This list is still shrinking, fishingfordeals is out this month, but the average Alexa rank growth is positive for the first time in very long time. I attribute this to the upcoming shopping season.

As usual, there are winners and losers. gottadeal.com (18.21%) had an excellent month followed by dealsea.com (17.46%). By the way, gottadeal already has a very active Black Friday discussion at their forums. Check it out.

The worst number comes from anandtech.com (-14.29%). I have recently discovered an interesting thing about Anandtech. They seem not to use affiliate links in their shopping forums. Can anyone comment?

    I noticed that the past year, on this list (and in alexa) my site has gone down in rankings every month, but in reality,I had only 3 down traffic months, and the others were nearly all 10% gainers. I know my ranking here doesn’t affect traffic, or the satisfaction of my users, so I’m not asking for any change, but just curious if this is the same for some of the other site owners?

    I found a niche site DragonRewards.com with url http://www.dragonrewards.com/browse/all/all/all

    This mostly a deal incentive site where they send you cash awards

    happy shopping

    Roger, Did you find that site, or did you create that site? It doesn’t have any alexa rank at all.

  4. 4 Scott Nov 5th, 2007 at 4:44 pm

    @in hiding — Alexa ranking is all relative, not just in your niche but across all the sites. Therefore you might experience traffic increase, but your relative ranking might still drop.

    @Yan — What’s the minimum Alexa ranking to be listed here? 100k? My site just went past 100k for the first time since it was launched, and repeatedly pressing Refresh with Alexa toolbar installed does the trick! (j/k :)

    Scott, the 3 month average is what the numbers here are. if you hit that average, then let Yan know.

  6. 6 Yan Nov 11th, 2007 at 12:53 am

    Scott, congratulations on the milestone! Are you serious about pressing refresh affecting the rank? I heard about something like this done before but couldn’t trust the source.

    Being on this list will not buy you much since only 0.7% of my visitors came from Australia last month, according to Google Analytics.

    So far I have stayed clear of foreign sites and if I were to list them I would probably start with RedFlagDeals, a major Canadian deal site.

  7. 7 Scott Nov 11th, 2007 at 1:54 am

    Thanks Yan! Actually I doubt refreshing the browser works as Alexa Toolbar sent back IP address installation date as signature and I think Alexa would have discount the requests if they all came with the same signature.

    I also agree that my site should not be listed here as my content is very much localised (getting 95% Australian visitors). I’m just reporting back my progress so far after a year of running a deal site in a relatively less-populated country :)
