Seattle Start-up Index

Seattle 2.0 has got a great start-up index that ranks 228 Seattle-based startups according to their Alexa and Compete traffic rankings. While the traffic numbers on these sites aren’t regarded as particularly accurate, they do allow for the assembly of a fun list that tracks changes in traffic patterns. Here are the Top 5 for December:

  1. Intelius – a leading information commerce company that provided consumers and businesses with information to empower the decision-making process for peace of mind and security.
  2. iLike– the Web’s leading social music discovery service and the dominant music application on the Facebook Platform.
  3. Zillow – an online real estate service dedicated to helping home buyers with valuable tools and information.
  4. 43 Things – a social networking site where users can list a number of goals or hopes and share with others through  tagging.
  5. SEOmoz – a weblog that serves as a hub for search marketers worldwide, providing education, tools, resources and paid services.

If you’re in the Seattle area and want on the list, be sure to read Marcelo Calbucci’s criteria for consideration. Calbucci’s Sampa blogging platform is #31 this month.
