Site reports strong traffic growth to reach a new record of more than 575,000 unique visitors in March.
San Francisco, CA -- BizBuySell.com, the Internet's largest marketplace for buying or selling a small business, announced today a new site traffic record of more than 575,000 unique visitors over the month of March 2011. This new record means that BizBuySell.com now receives five times the traffic of the next highest competing business-for-sale website. All figures are based on reporting from comScore Media Metrix, an independent provider of online audience measurement.
The traffic growth is driven by a collection of factors including site enhancements to optimize for search engine placement and increased marketing efforts. The increase also serves as further evidence of a slow, but steady overall economic recovery that seems to have spurred activity in the business for sale marketplace.
"Our recent investments and site upgrades have taken BizBuySell.com to the next level in terms of audience reach." said Curtis Kroeker, General Manager of BizBuySell.com. "We expect to see a continued increase in demand and supply as both the economy and capital access continue to improve and more people look to buy or sell a small business."
