Overview Of The Ranking Order For Offers Displayed On pricehunter.co.uk (hereinafter: Ranking)

I. Standard search via the search field

When searching for retailers‘ offers on pricehunter.co.uk via the search field, you will be taken to a search results page. The offers that are then displayed depend primarily on how well they match the search term(s) you entered but also on how much interest other users have shown in the associated product. In addition, we also check whether or not an image exists for the offer shown.

In summary, the ranking of the individual offers in our search is based on the following key aspects (weighted in the order shown):

  1. Existence of a product photo
  2. Relevance of your search term(s)
  3. Popularity of the product among our customers

We also offer a variety of filter options and other settings which enable you to modify the search results. The order of our price comparison, as mentioned above, therefore only refers to the standard search setting.

II. Price comparison

Within the search results pages, we group offers from different shops for the same products together on the basis of European Article Numbers (or EANs). If you click on one such price group, you will be taken to a product page. First and foremost, we’ll always show you the cheapest price. As standard, this refers to the lowest total price (i.e. the lowest price for the product itself and the delivery costs combined. Any other additional costs do not count towards the total price).

Should more than one pffers have exactly the same price, we sort the products according to the amount the partner shop pays us for a referral to their site. We believe this to be fair since there are no financial disadvantages to you, the customer.

III. Standard search in the individual categories

If you click through our product categories in your search, we’ll show you various products that are listed in these specific categories.

Example: If you click through into “Electronics” and then click on the category “TVs“, you’ll see products that match your search that are listed in the category “TVs“. We decide in which category a product should be listed before it goes live on our website. The ranking of the products in your search is based on the popularity of the individual products among our customers.

If you click on a price group, you will be taken to our price comparison pages. Read section II to find out more about how ranking works in the price comparison.

IV. Recommender systems

We want to provide you with the best possible support in your search for the right product and the most favourable offer on our site. That's why, in addition to the products and offers that match your search, we show you selected content on our pages to make it easier for you to find the right product for you.

You can find out how our search results come about under I.-III. on this page.

1. Similar products

If you search for a product using our standard search via the search field (see I.) and then select a single product, you will either be taken to the retailer's page or to our price comparison. If you land on the price comparison, we will show you "Similar products" in a separate section alongside the listed offers for the product you are looking for. The list of similar products is made up of the first 6 search results for the search you made using our search field. The ranking of the search results is explained under I.

If you reach one of our price comparison sites directly without searching via our site, we will also show you "Similar products" in a separate section. In this case, the list of similar products is based on the title of the product you are currently viewing on the price comparison page. Under "Similar products", we then show you the first 6 search results that are displayed when you search on our site with the title of the product you are viewing. The ranking of the search results is explained under I.
