Shaadi.com vs BharatMatrimony.com
Shaadi.com and BharatMatrimony.com are two matrimonial portals for Indians. Marriages are made in heaven they say, and in India at least, the marriages are still arranged. Love marriages are still far and few in between. But because of a fast paced life, there is a dearth of traditional matchmakers and pundits. In such a scenario, matchmaking is increasingly being sought through matrimonial sites. Shaadi.com and BharatMatrimony.com are two of the leading matrimonial sites in India that are helping thousands to find a perfect life partner. Ostensibly, both seem to be performing same function, but on closer look; there appear to be subtle differences between Shaadi.com and BharatMatrimony.com in working and professional details. Here is a look-in these differences between Shaadi.com and BharatMatrimony.com.
As far as number of profiles is concerned, BharatMatrimony.com is way ahead of Shaadi.com which is visible in the wide variety of profiles they have. It is a misconception that it is popular among south Indians as there are increasing numbers of profiles of north Indians on the site.
Both sites have free as well as premium membership plans. There are some advantages to those who opt for a premium membership on Shaadi.com as they have the liberty to write personal messages to other members and to get authentic contact numbers, talk directly through chat on the net or sending emails. BharatMatrimony.com on the other hand provides help and assistance in short listing members according to your personal preferences, matching of horoscopes, emails and chats to their premium members.
Both sites are very particular about maintaining secrecy and also security of the details of their members. Some of security features adopted by Shaadi.com are TRUSTe certification, ISO9001:2000 certification, Shaadi Seal (verification of profile) and Secure Talk (allowing conversation without telling numbers). Similar measures are taken by BharatMatrimony.com to secure safety of details of their members.
There is a feature of Block and Ignore on Bharatmatrimony.com which is not there in Shaadi.com. Once you see a profile on Bharatmatrimony.com, it is not shown to you again. It becomes irritating to get to see same profiles again and again on Shaadi.com. Shaadi.com shows only 10 profiles per page, whereas you get a better view with 50 profiles per page on BharatMatrimony.com.
