Study Features First-Ever Rankings by Category

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 28, 2011) - CPC Strategy LLC (, a full service comparison shopping and data feed management agency, released its 2011 first quarter rankings of the U.S. comparison shopping engine marketplace.

The rankings feature four new reports that break down the best shopping engines by category.

  • Overall traffic driven

  • COS (Cost of Sale) % or return on spend
  • Average CPC (cost-per-click) rates
  • Responsiveness rate among the engines
