since the inception of our relationship with PlentyofFish we have seen unequaled growth in their usage of instant messaging. Markus has consistently stayed in the top 5% of our customer list, and I personally follow his blog daily, as his insight offers real-word examples of sites building major user bases with innovation and cunning.

PlentyofFish®, the world's largest free dating site, is excited to announce that more than 300,000 users logged in this Monday 28th August. 10 zillion singles have signed up on PlentyofFish since the site was started in 2003, but unlike many dating sites, the old inactive profiles have been removed. So there’s no longer 10 zillion profiles sitting on PlentyofFish. Just the people who are active, that will probably respond.
Over 300,000 people logged in and spent time on PlentyofFish.com on Monday marking the true indication of PlentyofFish.com user activity levels. The site was founded by Markus Frind in 2003 with a commitment to the freedom of singles. Freedom to enjoy a completely, truly free internet dating site.
Markus Frind started PlentyofFish in 2003 as a way to hone his ASP.net programming skills. Since then the site has gained extraordinary popularity and has become respected as a technical and viral marketing success story.
Mike Jones of Userplane.com, which was recently acquired by AOL, said, “since the inception of our relationship with PlentyofFish we have seen unequaled growth in their usage of instant messaging. Markus has consistently stayed in the top 5% of our customer list, and I personally follow his blog daily, as his insight offers real-word examples of sites building major user bases with innovation and cunning.”
Markus Frind commented, “I continually see sites boasting about how many registered members they have. Yes, they may have millions of members registered, but that’s to their detriment. We cull and clean out old profiles once they become inactive and unresponsive. Most other sites prefer to keep the old profiles in place for excessive periods. It’s good for conversions, but bad for users. I won’t do that to my users. I don’t have to, we’re free.”
Reasons for the PlentyofFish Rise to Success
- PlentyofFish is the Only Top 10 Dating Site Dedicated to Remaining Completely Free
You cannot spend money on PlentyofFish. Other supposed ‘free’ sites reel users in with the promise of free services, and then offer additional services such as instant messaging at a cost. Instant messaging is completely free on PlentyofFish. Open communication is completely free. One merely needs to sign up to have access to the complete roster of services.
- PlentyofFish Does Effective Matchmaking Without the 436 Questions
Markus has automated the PlentyofFish site with personality based matchmaking based, not on what people say they want, but rather on what they indicate they want through their search behavior. Actions speak louder than words.
PlentyofFish is the truly free, put away your credit card, internet dating site, serving the USA, Canada, Europe and the Americas. The PlentyofFish mission is to cut the crap and do the work for singles who want to meet without shelling out hundreds of dollars for services that should be free.
