Popular price comparison sites – October 2007

Update: for the latest revision of this list go to Popular price comparison sites - March 2011.

This is October 2007 revision of the Popular Price Comparison web 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 33 web sites and there are 15 more sites in my database that don’t meet Alexa Rank < 100,000 requirement.

It looks like latest Google update affected a lot of sites. I am not sure if Page Rank is relevant anymore though. My blog for once was hit (the rank went from 4 to 3) but I don’t see anything changed web-traffic wise.

The winner this month is again pronto.com (27.63%) which just passed pricerunner by Alexa rank. The social functionality they launched in September and all the buzz around it is clearly helping.

The worst result comes from thefind.com (-58.98%). Other than possibly reduced amount of advertising I don’t have other explanation for this drop.

    I just launched a site – shopsort.com on October 8, 2007

    Here’s the Alexa.
