Russia has become the European leader in the number of internet users - study


According to the data of “Comscore Media Metrix” Russia has become the leader among the European countries by Internet audience. In September 2011 some 50.81 million unique visitors from Russia spent an average of 22.4 net hours, looking at an average of 2.4 pages.

Russia, therefore, surpassed by the number of unique users Germany (50.13 million unique visitors).

By the number of hours spent on the web, UK users are leading the top with an average of 36 hours a month per user. The average Russian user spent on the internet a little over than 22 hours visiting a little less than two and a half thousand web pages.

According to “ComScore”, the total global Internet audience in September was 1.42 billion unique visitors who spent an average of 24 hours on the network. In Europe, the Internet audience reached 373.4 million unique visitors. Each of them spent an average of 26.4 hours on the Internet.

In September 2011 approximately 30% of European users (more than 108 million people) visited sites related to professional activities. Thus, requests of this type became the most popular during the study period. Within this category the most sought after resources were ones dedicated to education, training and skills development (an increase of 28%) and services to find employment - an increase of 21%.

Google continues to be the most visited web resource - it has been used more than 340 million unique users, over 90% of the Internet audience in Europe. His closest competitor - Microsoft - has collected about 260 million people (70% of the audience).

Russian social network "Vkontakte" has become a leader among European Internet sites by the time that visitors spend on the site. In September, the Russian audience of "Vkontakte" amounted to 34.3 million visitors, and in the world scale this figure was 58.7 million. On the average each of them spent on the site more than seven hours (427 minutes), estimates “Comscore”.

Among the fastest-growing resources in Europe in August and September turned out to be an Irish company “Populis” (it grew by 44%), Czech portal, which grew by 25%, and gaming service “EA Online” which grew by 16%. |
