2010 Social Network Analysis Report – Geographic – Demographic and Traffic Data Revealed

Its that time of the year again and I thought our readers would be curious how the different social networks have progressed over the last 2 years since we started analyzing the various social networks from around the world. It is interesting to note that the domain type in traffic has fallen for almost all of the social networks we analyzed. We are not sure if this is an anomaly with the Google Insights for Search tool, or if users are realizing you don’t need to Google domain.com, you simply need to use the browser for what it was intended for. In any case, I have highlighted some of the changes below. Remember all insight is gathered from Google Ad Planner and Google Insights for Search.
