AOL Real Estate continued its steady upward climb during April in rankings of the Internet’s most popular real estate websites compiled by Web metrics firms Experian Hitwise.
After rising from 16th to eighth position to break into the Hitwise top 10 in March, AOL Real Estate continued to boost its audience in April, rising to fifth place with a 2.91 percent market share in the real estate category, Hitwise said.
The rankings of the top four real estate sites were unchanged from March.
The latest numbers from Hitwise show Realtor.com was the most popular real estate site on the Internet in April, with a 6.5 percent market share, followed by Yahoo Real Estate (6.1 percent), Zillow (5.52 percent), and Trulia.com (4.75 percent).
Realtor.com operator Move Inc. announced an agreement with AOL Real Estate in January, in which Move is powering the site’s homes-for-sale search and coordinating ad sales to real estate agents, brokers and other advertisers.
