Wholesalecentral.com Announces Record Traffic and Activity
BETHEL, Conn./EWORLDWIRE/May 4, 2006 -- Wholesalecentral.com, the web's largest network of active wholesale buyers and sellers, achieved two exciting milestones in traffic and activity in April. Growing steadily since its launch in 1995, Wholesalecentral.com this month broke the one million mark for monthly visits to the site. These are actual wholesale buying sessions averaging over 18 minutes in length. In addition, Wholesalecentral.com now boasts over 200,000 wholesale products for sale through its exclusive "Wholesale Power Search". The proprietary "Wholesale Power Search" engine allows buyers to search the online stores of over 1,500 wholesale suppliers from a single search box on Wholesalecentral.com.
"When we launched the Power Search in October 2005, our goal was to reach over 200,000 wholesale items for sale by April, 2006." said Scott Sumner, president of Wholesalecentral.com's parent company, Sumner Communications. "Due to the ease of use of our web site, and the enormous audience of buyers who use the site regularly, suppliers have been uploading their products every day. We passed the 200,000 item mark on target this April."
Wholesalecentral.com is a 100% human edited directory of the leading manufacturers, distributors, importers, and wholesale suppliers of general and variety merchandise. Every company listed in the directory is an active participant, currently in business, and has been qualified and approved by Wholesalecentral.com, ensuring the highest quality of suppliers available.
Wholesale buyers have responded to the site's ease of use and high quality of suppliers by making Wholesalecentral.com their preferred destination for sourcing wholesale merchandise. "The one million visitor mark was a dream and a lofty goal just two years ago" said Sumner. To achieve this level so rapidly in our growth is spectacular.
