Waterfront Media Announces Everyday Health Network is Number One Online Health Destination
The Everyday Health Network, operated by Waterfront Media, is now the number one online health destination site within the health category according to comScore Media Metrix October 2008 U.S. unique audience figures. The new numbers make the health property one of the top 50 most visited properties attracting more than 25 million visitors.
"With the explosion of information available on the Web, particularly in the health space, there is increased demand for trusted online health information. Everyday Health fills that need, which has enabled us to realize our goal of becoming the number one health property in only two years," said Ben Wolin, Waterfront Media's CEO. "Our continued exponential growth has put us far ahead of our competitors in the space and provides our advertisers with the ability to reach millions of consumers already seeking the best way to manage their health. These new figures emphasize that we are moving in the right direction, and look forward to the future expansion of our content and resources."
Since launching in 2006, The Everyday Health Network - which includes Revolutionhealth.com, Carepages.com, WhatToExpect.com, SouthBeachDiet.com and 21 others has seen impressive monthly growth. With the recent Revolution Health merger and addition of RightHealth, the online property has seen an even higher increase in growth. In addition to being the top health property overall, the Everyday Health Network is also number one for 52 of the 59 health conditions comScore Media Metrix* measures, including allergies, diabetes and ADHD. Overall day-to-day traffic has more than doubled in the portal's second year of operation. In October 2007, the site received just over 12 million visitors.
