Canada Top Start-ups … according to Google

20 Aug
2008

I have found the TechVibes Top Start-ups list entertaining, and while looking over all the stats Google is now sharing, thought how the top 10 would play out:

Plenty of Fish 620 K 2.4%
Metro Lyrics 560 K 2.2%
Nexopia 430 K 1.7%
Zip Local 220 K 0.9%
Suite 101/td> 200 K 0.8%
iBegin 180 K 0.7%
Shop To It 85 K 0.3%
b5 Media 39 K 0.2%
Abe Books 43 K 0.2%
Cellphones 47 K 0.2%

Please note that it just so happened that anything not in the top 10% had a reach of 0.1% or lower.

This was of course a one-time shot – hopefully TechVibes can add Google and Quantcast to their numbers for even more number-griping :)

Has Enthropia always been a Canadian company, Ahmed?

Yes, we would like to integrate Google and Quantcast numbers, if not for this month then the next.

Question though: how did you get the numbers? I don’t see any export option or any place that they’re shown numerically.

Hany – yep. We incorporated in March 2003

Greg – umm top right area. Eg: http://www.quantcast.com/plentyoffish.com – rank of 343. I don’t see any bulk export but I’m sure if you contact their biz dev they would work with you.

How’s Metro Lyrics a legal startup? Aren’t music lyrics technically copyrighted by the music companies? How are these lyric sites still in business is what I am wondering :)

You can legally subscribe that information – http://www.techvibes.com/blog/metrolyrics-get-authorized/

I believe MetroLyrics is one of the rare sites that do that legally, though. So many more popular sites don’t have these licenses.

Any clue on how much a typical Gracenote “partnership” or “legal license” will cost?

Quantcast numbers, I saw. Durr, thought you were displaying the Google numbers. Yes, we’d like to start pulling in Quantcast soon.
