NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyday Health, Inc., the largest provider of online health solutions, recorded a milestone by surpassing the mark of 30.2 million unique users per month in January (comScore Media Metrix). Everyday Health has further extended its lead and distanced itself from the competition in the online health space. According to the January 2012 comScore Media Metrix report, Everyday Health leads the online health category with a 39% advantage (or a difference of 8.4 million unique users) over the second-place competitor.
Separately this week, AlwaysOn, a source for the analysis and prediction of top trends and companies in digital media, named Everyday Health to its OnMedia Top 100 list of the preeminent emerging companies in the world of media, advertising, marketing, branding and public relations. Everyday Health is the only health publisher included in this prestigious list. Inclusion in the OnMedia 100 signifies leadership amongst peer companies and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Everyday Health was specially selected on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz. This marked the second consecutive year EH has been named to this list.
The AlwaysOn Top 100 designation coupled with the comScore report is a further sign of Everyday Health's online leadership. Notably, comScore also reported that the company's MedPage Today, which targets healthcare professionals, achieved a 37% growth rate to 1.8 million unique users in the December-January period.
As a result of the continued increase in monthly unique users as measured by comScore, Everyday Health is able to more effectively provide premium, and increased, scale for marketers who are targeting health-minded consumers, and also is a sign of stability in the online health sphere of influence. Everyday Health is also recognized in the industry for its ability to offer an award-winning collection of marketing solutions and advertising programs.
"The secret to our success is very simple," noted Everyday Health chief executive officer Ben Wolin. "Everyday Health continues to create best-in-breed original health content that resonates with consumers, professionals and marketers across the entire health spectrum – from medical condition management to healthy lifestyle." (Note: Ben Wolin will be speaking Feb. 22 at the OnMedia NYC 2012 event, "Where Silicon Valley meets Madison Avenue" at Time Warner Center in New York City.)
