Popular price comparison sites – April 2008

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

This is April 2008 revision of the Popular Price Comparison web sites list. You can find the last month revision of the list here.

Just like I did with deal sites, I had to tighten the requirement down to 50,000 to keep the list manageable after Alexa reworked their measuring algorithm.

These changes in rank below are for the most part meaningless because what they reflect is who of these price comparison sites benefited more from the algorithm changes. The next month list will be more fun to watch.
