Finance directors use AccountancyAge.com more often than any comparable website, according to a survey this week. Despite an explosion in the number of business news and information websites, the field is still in its infancy. But the figures, which come from a survey carried out by our sister publication, Financial Director, show AccountancyAge.com, has already made its mark. Launched in November 1999, AccountancyAge.com was named by 22% of FDs responding to a question asking which site they accessed most often for news and business purposes, placing it ahead of the BBC, AccountingWeb, Bloomberg, CNN and many other services. Only FT.com was ranked higher. But we are not resting on our laurels and are already planning improvements. AccountancyAge.com aims to become a complete news and information service for finance professionals providing them with the news, help, advice, information, services and entertainment they need to be successful at work and in their careers. To do this we need your feedback, so please e-mail us at comment@accountancyage. com and tell us what we’re doing right and wrong, and what you would like to see on AccountancyAge.com. FACT FILE During the 112 days it has been running, AccountancyAge.com has registered around 230,000 ‘page impressions’ – a measure of the number of pages opened and read.
