comScore Releases Top French Web Rankings for February

Valentine’s Day Drives Traffic to Flowers, Gifts & Greetings Sites

New Firefox Browser Helps Mozilla Organisation Grow to More than 4 Million Visitors

PARIS,FRANCE, April 2, 2008 – comScore, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCOR), a leader in measuring the digital world, today released its February rankings of the largest and fastest-growing Internet properties and site categories in France based on data from the comScore World Metrix audience measurement service.

Online visitation figures traditionally dip slightly in February, since the shortness of the month means that there are fewer days on which visits can be recorded. Nonetheless, Valentine’s Day helped drive traffic to the flowers/gifts/and greetings category, which grew by 20 percent from January to 3.4 million visitors in February. Gains were also experienced in the hotels & resorts, real estate and career resources categories.

Uptake of its new Firefox Internet browser saw traffic to the Mozilla Organisation increase 79 percent to 4.5 million visitors, while the Euro Million Lottery draw caused traffic to Francaise des Jeux to grow 35 percent to 2.2 million visitors.
