Compete.com Competitive metrics for every business

Description

In 1998, a serial entrepreneur named Bill Gross started a revolutionary new search engine called GoTo. GoTo became Overture, created the business of paid search, and was acquired by Yahoo. Google quickly adopted the paid search model, grew to become the largest search engine on the web and now stands side-by-side with Yahoo as one of the most prominent Internet properties in the world.

Bill also had another big idea... In 2000, he created Compete.com to organize the clicks we all make on the web. The vision was simple: if we all share our clicks, then each of us gets smarter by knowing what's happening across the web.

Today, search engines help us find sites, but they fall short of showing how safe, popular and valuable a site is. Through click-sharing, Compete extends search algorithms by tapping the collective online experiences of millions of people. By sharing our clicks, we create useful new information about the websites we visit that can help us answer questions like:

  • Is this website safe from spyware and other threats like phishing?
  • How many people visit this site and how does it compare to other sites?
  • Are there promotion codes for this site that can save me money?

Compete.com helps you personally benefit from click-sharing. Whether it's protecting you from a dangerous site, profiling each website you visit, or showing you promo codes that will save you money at check out, Compete wants to help create a more trusted, transparent, and valuable Internet.
