SAN DIEGO - October 21, 2008 - TopTenWholesale, the information superhighway for wholesale suppliers and distributors, announced today it was recently named the top alternative search engine by both MSNBC.com and Entrepreneur.com.
The cable news outlet's site and the publication that target entrepreneurs ranked the site higher than Yahoo Local Search, IT.com and other vertical Internet properties.
MSNBC runs a Small Business information-sharing site that includes a weekly â€œTop Fiveâ€ list on topics of entrepreneurial interest. Topics covered by the programs include "Cost-effective Market Research" and "Green Office Tools" to "Travel Gadgets" and "Saving Money on Airfare". On September 7, the site listed Top Five Alternative Search Engines as named by Entrepreneur.com:
â€œIt is nice to be in the company of top search sites for information technology professionals and the geographically localized search channel of Yahoo!," said Jason Prescott, CEO of TopTenWholesale. â€œWe believe Vertical Search Engines like ours are a greater value for the markets they serve for four reasons: the difference in advertising costs, the difference in the types of traffickers that click through, the amount of free industry news provided and the interactivity offered.â€
TopTenWholesale.com is an Internet property of JP Communications, publisher of other vertical search engine and directories, including Wholezilla.com, OffPriceNetwork.com and WholesaleU.com. The companyâ€™s mission is to be the information superhighway for the general merchandise industry and facilitate sales of wholesale products such as apparel, jewelry and novelties with independent retailers, closeout distributors and online auction dealers.
