Softonic Ranked No. 1 European Company with Largest Global Online Audience

Softonic, the world’s leading online software guide, today announced that it is the No. 1 European company in global online audience and No. 34 worldwide, according to the latest data from digital measurement leader ComScore, Inc. Over the last months, Softonic’s growth both in Europe and worldwide has continued to increase; as recently as October, 2013, Softonic was the No. 2 European company and No. 36 worldwide.

"We are pleased with both positions as they show strong growth globally,” said Tomás Diago, founder and President of Softonic. “We believe Softonic is in a good position for further growth, especially in the U.S., and we are very optimistic about the future as we continue to offer the most comprehensive software selection to our users, adapting ourselves to their changing needs and current trends in the sector.”

In November, Softonic announced that it exceeded 6 million daily software downloads globally – an increase of 1 million in about six months – representing more than 128 million unique users each month. Almost 30 percent of these downloads came from the version of Softonic for mobile, which has seen increased traffic due to the rise of Internet navigation from mobile devices.
