Dubai: Bayut & dubizzle, have enjoyed a meteoric rise since their inception and grown to become iconic brands in the UAE and a part of the sole homegrown Unicorn in the Arab World, EMPG. Both the brands have built a solid reputation with users across the country and cemented their position as some of the most trusted organisations in the UAE. This is also evident from the fact that both Bayut & dubizzle have ranked among the top 50 websites in the UAE as per SimilarWeb and Alexa, reflecting their superior authority and performance on the web.
As per the rankings released by both the websites, Bayut & dubizzle are ahead of well-known international websites such as BBC.com and IMDB.com, as well as local competitors in the UAE. Bayut currently ranks at 39th place on Alexa and 45th place on SimilarWeb, while dubizzle stands at 13th place on Alexa and 22nd place on Similar Web!
Both brands are also the only online classifieds websites to be featured among the list of top websites in the UAE, joining the league of leading brands such as Amazon, Noon, Ali Express and Booking.com.
This announcement follows after a landmark year for Bayut & dubizzle. The parent company of the popular brands, Emerging Markets Property Group reached the coveted unicorn status in early 2020, following its merger with OLX Group in the MENA and South Asian markets. Although the pandemic did cause some expected disruptions in the real estate market and other classifieds segments in the initial phase of the mobility restrictions, both Bayut & dubizzle stayed true to their commitment to the wellbeing of their partners by offering timely relief schemes. Bayut even extended a helping hand to agencies who were not signed up on the platform, by offering 20 free of cost listings to help struggling brokerages increase their visibility and reach out to more prospective buyers and sellers.
The company credits its success to the strong teams that drive the growth and innovation in the company. Their core values of honesty, ownership and innovation, the vision, and the proactive mindset of ‘disrupt or get disrupted’ have led to the success of both the companies.
Haider Ali Khan, CEO at Bayut & dubizzle and Head of EMPG MENA, also commented on reaching this remarkable milestone:“We've always focused on the customer and tried to simplify their experience, whether it is through our innovative products or our user-friendly platforms. It is extremely gratifying to see how our users have responded to these initiatives by giving us so much love and helping both brands become household names in the UAE. We value the feedback from our users and will continue to work tirelessly to ensure Bayut & dubizzle support them in every way possible; whether it is to find a new home, get a new employment opportunity or even connect with service providers across the UAE,”
“Taking on the task of solving the problems encountered by our users and partners, and delivering consistently positive results to further that commitment, has been core to our success and it will remain our driving force in the future as well.”
