BettyConfidential.com Breaks comScore's Top 10 for Beauty/Fashion/Style Category and Is a Finalist for min's Editorial Excellence

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 3, 2010) -  BettyConfidential, the fastest growing women's web site with original content, has broken comScore's Top 10 for Beauty/Fashion/Style (media) category in less than two years since its launch. Ranked #7, BettyConfidential falls right after People Style Watch (#5) and Hearst Beauty & Style Network (#6), but outranks competitors such as Glam Media, Elle, Glamour, and In Style. 

"We have blown away the competition, and resonate quite well with how young women want to receive information and be entertained on the web," says CEO Deborah Perry Piscione.

Additionally, BettyConfidential.com is a finalist in the category of Editorial Excellence in min's 2010 Best of the Web awards -- competing with Conde Nast and The Daily Beast. BettyConfidential's nomination marks the first time that a women's website has been honored in the Editorial Excellence category.

"It's no wonder," says BettyConfidential's Editor-in-Chief Myrna Blyth of the web site's rapid success and Editorial Excellence nomination. "Look at the experience of the editorial team. Our writers are the best of the best, and we know what women want."

According to the min team, "The competition was fierce and to place as a finalist is a major accomplishment." Blyth adds, "We are honored to be in such distinguished company, particularly as the site has only been online for less than 2 years." Each finalist will receive an award during min's awards event in New York City on April 28, 2010.
