Compete.com overtakes Alexa

Congratulations to the team at Compete for eclipsing Alexa!

It was just a year ago that we launched Compete.com. We weren’t sure what would happen by opening up the aggregate data that we used internally. All we were certain about was that it was time to end the barrier that always stood between those who contributed the data (“users” or worse yet, “panelists”) and those who made use of that data (“marketers”).

Naturally many saw this as an unnecessary distraction at a time when our core business had just hit its tipping point. But a few of us kept pushing the idea forward and with the support of Don McLagan, our CEO, and Stephen DiMarco we were able to launch Compete.com.

I’d like to publically thank what I consider to be the “original” Compete.com team:

I’m sure I’m forgetting someone, if so please let me know.

There are many others who have worked hard to make Compete.com succesful since, Thanks to all of you for taking it further than we could have imagined.
