Popular price comparison sites – May 2008

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

Just a few remarkable changes. like.com (23.68%) keeps advancing (first place for second month in a row) while calibex.com (-25.13%) lost a quarter of Alexa rank. Comparing to the data for May of last year, like.com moved from #26 to #21 while calibex.com moved from #16 to #18.

A new site has broken the 50K Alexa threshold, salescircular.com (-9.56%). It has a terrible design, tons of Google ads, and broken link to the FAQ page. I consider taking down the entry.
