ComScore's Top Startups in Canada - April 2009

Posted by Rob Lewis

As a follow-up to PEER 1's April 2009 Canada Startup Index yesterday, comScore has provided us with their take on the top contenders based on February 2009 data.

In the above chart, the Online % Reach is the percentage of Canadians online that each entity reaches. As an example, Metrolyrics reached 9.1% of all Canadians during February.

Overall the numbers aren't much different than last month other than Transcontinental's Weblocal.ca dropping back down 1.0% to 5.6% and giving the #2 spot back to Plentyoffish.

Thanks again to comScore for sharing this valuable data with Techvibes.
