Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) December 1, 2006
HealthPricer Interactive (TSX-V: HPC), a leader in comparison shopping for consumer healthcare products, announces that it has reached a significant milestone: yesterday http://www.healthpricer.com had its 1,000,000th unique visitor.
This milestone is very significant as it reflects the accelerating growth in traffic to HealthPricer.com, where total monthly unique visitors have grown from 80,000 in May to a projected 140,000 in November, which represents an increase of 75 percent. During this same period the number of visitors arriving at http://www.healthpricer.com as organic traffic(1) increased from 27,962 in May to an expected 57,800 in November, which represents an increase of 106 percent.
"Reaching the 1,000,000th unique visitor is a significant milestone for us and I am equally pleased to see a significant portion (currently 42 percent) of this traffic coming through non-paid organic sources," says Michael I. Brown, President and CEO of HealthPricer Interactive. "The growth in our organic traffic can be largely attributed to the search engines (i.e. Google) picking up our continually expanding product database. With the recent addition of nearly 64,000 products introduced with the beta launch of the Medicine Cabinet and Beauty departments, and other traffic generation strategies, I am confident that we will continue to see exponential growth in unique visitors to HealthPricer."
(1) Organic traffic is essentially non-paid traffic, which includes free search engine traffic, returning customers (through browser bookmarks) and consumers directly typing http://www.healthpricer.com into their browser.
