Web stores do not suffer from the crisis
In the Netherlands, during the first half of this year, web stores have witnessed growth despite the economic crisis. That was revealed in a study published by the online market research bureau Multiscope.
E-commerce sites such as bol.com, Wehkamp and Neckermann clearly welcomed more visitors than before. Almost half of the Top 20 websites in the Netherlands are engaged in e-commerce. On the other hand, content websites such as startpagina and nu.nl are losing their position because of the emergence of community websites such as Facebook and Hyves.nl.
