Proprietary algorithms ensure that headlines are clustered by topics and duplicate content is removed automatically. The algorithm also displays Trending Newzz and Popular Newzz. These headlines are regularly updated automatically. Another unique characteristic is that Newzz provides unbiased information. Multiple sources linking to contradictory content is displayed on this website. This gives user different perspectives to a same story, eventually making the user a judge.

What differentiates Newzz from the competition is its unique algorithm that groups similar headlines under a single topic.

Since the headlines are collected only from reliable online media, the possibility of fake news coming up on this website is negligible. Each piece of news published on this website is easily shareable through various social media channels.

When asked the founder (who is a successful businessman) how he intends to compete with established players in limited budget, he mentioned that “While a few large players exist with a lot of users, my objective is to turn profitable faster with fewer users. As my costs of operations are the lowest, we are already profitable as on Oct 2020.”

A screenshot from Google Analytics showed that more than 200,000 users have viewed a total of 400,000 pages in a 30 day period. Apart from the homepage, more than 20,000 unique news articles are read each month. The bounce rate of their traffic is less than 30% which is lowest as compared to the industry average of more than 70%.

In the future, Newzz intends to provide hyper-local content in 10+ Indian languages. It will not be a mere translation of the English site. The content provided will be relevant to each user based on the language chosen. Users will be able to receive latest news directly on their WhatsApp. The founder also wishes to have a long term content distribution partnership with content providers.
