Mashable reported today that Vancouver’s very own Plentyoffish is on top of the dating world in the US and UK according to a recent comScore report.

The dating site founded in 2003 by Markus Frind in Vancouver has provided us with a rather entertaining tale of minimal resources and resounding success. The spartan dating website draws in over $10 million per year from advertising, equaling out to around $1 million per year for every daily hour Frind puts into the maintenance of Plentyoffish. In the US the numbers provided by comScore show that Plentyoffish receives over 36 million users a month, with Singles.net coming in at number two with just under 30 million users.

Thanks to our revised requirements for the Techvibes Start-Up Indexes, look for Plentyoffish to be back on that August 1st Canadian list. They should be neck-and-neck with MetroLyrics.com for the #1 spot.
