Popular price comparison sites – July 2008

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

This is July 2008 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 June results. The list has a total of 35 web sites and there are 16 more sites in my database that don’t meet Alexa Rank < 100,000 requirement.

The best gainer this month is thefind.com (26.13%) which has been doing very nicely this year, up to #18 from #27 in December, 2007.

The worst performer is jellyfish.com (-28.48%). This is understandingly. After Microsoft integrated cash back part of the site into Live Search, smack shopping is all that is left of JellyFish.

    This website is new on the product search engine: http://www.octoprice.co.uk/.

    It offers free listing for shops…do you think that it has a future?
