just announced that 2009 was its most active year yet, with 62.3 million unique visitors – a 45 percent increase over 2008. Vistors included those participating on the site’s social community, Trulia Voices. The number of questions asked of real estate professionals and its new Trulia Mayors doubled year over year.

Trulia’s 2009 focus was four-pronged: smarter search, personalization, rich property and local data, and mobile.

“We dedicated 2009 to delivering a great consumer experience,” said Trulia co-founder and CEO Pete Flint, in the announcement. “Looking back on the engagement data makes me believe we are delivering on what the consumer wants. Mobile and local information will be two areas of focus for the coming year.   On the weekends, 5 to 10 percent of our overall traffic comes from mobile handsets.  Deep local information, data and insights is also key to consumers interested in real estate and we will introduce more data and local knowledge during the next year.”

For details on its 2009 key initiatives, here’s the release.
