Google Versus VConnect in Local Search Competition in Nigeria

VConnect is the No. 1 and Largest Local Search Engine in Nigeria

Can anything on the internet challenge Google, the number one search engine on the World Wide Web?

How can you compete with Google that has been estimated to run over one million servers in data centers around the world and processing over one billion search requests and about twenty-four petabytes of user-generated data every day?

But on the internet anything is possible!

And this is what is happening in Nigeria!

Till now; in Nigeria, millions of people online were dependent on Google to search for information. But how much of this information is relevant to millions of Nigerians? Say you search for Lagos; Google throws result of Lagos in Nigeria and Lagos in Portugal. Who cares about Portugal?

Nigerians want to find more relevant and local information rather than global information. And that's where VConnect comes into picture.
VConnect gives you more localized search results. And this has attracted millions of people in the most populous country in Africa, making the new search engine the number one and largest local search engine in Nigeria.

Within a year of launch, VConnect has ranked Top 5 Nigerian sites in Nigeria as per Alexa Ranking and it is the only portal which allows businesses to generate real prospects and increase customers.

VConnect cannot be compared with Google; as Google aggregates search results from various websites, whereas VConnect shows results for all businesses, products and services in Nigeria.

VConnect is not there to compete with Google globally, but locally.
VConnect provides optimized local search results, which are related to any product, service or business for a population of over 167 million people in Nigeria.

VConnect is also the first 24/7 tele-search service providing instant product, service, business information in Nigeria and over 300,000+ businesses have been listed and winning awards! In November 2011, VConnect won the Personalized Information Product Award of the Year from RIMA, an organization, which encourages the overall development of the information management industry in Nigeria.
Millions of Nigerians and others are connecting on VConnect where they can make the right connections for countless opportunities in Nigeria and beyond.

VConnect is poised to carry the mantle of change!
And Nigerians are proud of VConnect, the true Naija born search engine.
