I have talked about the LeapFish search engine earlier, as you might recall. I am a lover of LeapFish, particularly because I think LeapFish is one search engine that might actually have a chance of making it to the big-time. Further affirming this, LeapFish continues to grow its user base.
LeapFish anticipates that there will be more than 20 million searches in 2010 at their search engine. They have lately reported good early adopter growth in 2009, and they have reached a 10,000 Alexa rank in one year.
LeapFish reported that at its ongoing growth rate and with its new partnerships, the search engine anticipates more than 20 million searches to be executed in 2010. “Through SEO, our growing affiliate network, partnerships with strategic software vendors and our continuing organic adoption we are acquiring our user base by bigger multiples this year,” said Behnam Behrouzi, president and CEO. “Our product advancements in 2009 have assisted to gear the search engine for an even bigger year in 2010,” he said.
In 2009 the company made substantial advancements and innovations to its growing search engine including; real time search, deeper search results, personal home pages, content sharing features and proprietary Twitter and Facebook applications, that have facilitated the growth of the search engine from an Alexa traffic ranking of 150,000 to 10,000 in less than one year. “We are the only search platform searching all that users care about in the new World Wide Web with over fifty providers including Google, Yelp, Twitter, Youtube, Mashable, Topsy, Wikipedia, and many others,” said Bruggeman. “The innovations and data integrations from 2009 have set LeapFish apart and are distinctly reflected in our Alexa traffic ranking,” he said.
LeapFish also reported growing success with its extraordinary ad model that boasts zero cost per click fees. “Thousands of advertisers are procuring high demand keywords that can return ROI in just a brief period of time,” said Bruggeman. “Over 80% of our advertisers renew their sponsorship for one year or more,” he said.
LeapFish plans to release a second ad program to advertisers this Spring.
