TheFind Overtakes Yahoo! Shopping As No. 2 Shopping Search Engine

TheFind, which grew by 175 percent year-over-year according to ChannelAdvisor, recently passed Yahoo! Shopping to become the second largest shopping search engine (after Google) according to comScore’s measure of total visits to comparison shopping engines.

According to ComScore, TheFind is the fastest growing site in its category: #1 in repeat visits and #2 in overall visits. and the shopping sites it powers saw between 2.3 and 2.7 average visits per visitor, as compared with 1.9 average visits per visitor for the next closest competitor.

“Our formula is pretty simple: make it easy for people to find the things they want to buy, and without bias, show them every available purchasing option.” said Siva Kumar, CEO of TheFind.  “When you do that, people come back because they both trust you and like what they find.” 

TheFind continues to make key hires in engineering and marketing that will nearly double the company’s size by year end.  To meet its expansion requirements, TheFind this week also celebrated the opening of a new San Francisco office in the heart of the financial district and convenient to all of the Bay Area’s best public transportation.
