August 21, 2008

CitySquares.com, the premiere hyper-local search site in New England, New York City and eastern New York State, has eclipsed the half a million user mark so far this month making it the fastest-growing search site on the internet, according to data compiled by Quantcast, the world’s only open internet ratings service. The company expects to reach one million users per month by September, 2008.

CitySquares.com’s traffic has grown 1500% since June 13, 2008 when it expanded beyond metropolitan Boston to feature over 1.5 million businesses in New York City, eastern New York State and all of New England. CitySquares.com now has more monthly traffic visitors than such brand name sites as:

— Boston.Citysearch.com

— Dunkin’Donuts.com

— Mastercard.com

— NYC.com

— WNBC.com

— VanityFair.com

Ben Saren, CEO of CitySquares.com, says this data proves that consumers are finding the value of using a true hyper-local search site. “This kind of organic growth demonstrates that our model works and that we’re addressing a shortcoming in the marketplace. Consumers are finding what they want and businesses are seeing excellent results. We are proud so many businesses refer to us as a trusted online resource.”

Businesses are able to fully customize their CitySquares.com advertising campaign with SEO tools, content management, content syndication tools, email newsletters, video, offline tools, and much more.
