Hi all!!!
One question for you:
have you ever heard this search engine or site called www.cu2.nl ? Unfortunately I still don't speak Dutch so I can't understand what is written inside but I found it in the top referring sites in a Web Trends report.
Thanks.

Hi Wolfy.

It looks like it is not a normal search engine, but a 'foto-contact-site'. It seems to be some kind of dating/contact site.

I'll try to get one of our members from the Netherlands to take a look at it.

What Rumbas said - a contact site. No websearch whatsoever. Wolfy, you might give it a try - dutch women are pretty!
(I know, my wife comes from there)

Thanks guys,
I noticed it wasn't a real engine but It looked strange that only for a picture it scored in a really high position in my referring sites.
Congratulations for your wife Heini :)

Okay, thanks - nothing to do with Amsterdam, sheŽs been living in Germany for a while.
Erm - Can we now go back to work, please?

Hi,

Just to confirm:
Cu2.nl is a dating/contact site only. (I speak Dutch)

There is no websearch, just a search for members of the dating service.
The results on a search do not seem to link to outside domains, just to the profile pages.

They make an interesting claim on the homepage: they say they have 1215570 dutch members on file, 1 in 135 on the total dutch (offline) population.

They do have huge amounts of traffic, about 138.000 pageviews per day judging by their public tracker.

Hey Damian. Thanks for clearing things out.

Couldn't see it as search engine for finding documents on the Web either ;)

>138.000 page views a day
Oh my! That is quite a lot of traffic. Guess dating/contact sites are 'hot' there too?

Guess they are...don't have any experience in this field though.

From a quick look, they appear to be one of the few totally free dutch dating sites.
Might explain part of their succes.
