Blog rumors turned out to be true.
California-based PriceGrabber.com compared prices of products such as computers and clothing for more than 17 million users last month, GUS said. The business connects users to more than 9,000 online retailers, who pay each time they get a lead.
Details are skimpy at the time of this post but an overview is here: Bloomberg [bloomberg.com]
Nice dig thaedge. Experian is going to be a huge competitor in the online advertising space before long. Do some digging to see what other companies they have purchased recently and you'll see what I mean. A bunch of them, including affiliate network primaryads etc. etc.

I use pricegrabber-it's a good service. In my opinion, it's also a good time to sell. Most referrals come from users finding the comparison listings in organic serps. I can imagine google cracking down on this type of duplicate listing in the future. MSN shopping is currently powered by pricegrabber-but so was their search not too long ago. They may opt to build their own, and Yahoo already has.
Could be wrong on how it will shake out, but I do know that search engines generally frown on duplicate listings.
