Sep 04 Social Network Geographics â€“ 39 Sites Compared
I thought it would be interesting to see the Geographic data from Google Insight with regards to some of the top social networks around the world. Below you will find the data returned for each site, and the resulting country that has the highest percentage of interest for the given sites URL.
Here is a quick excerpt from Google Insight explaining how this data is formulated in the first place:
If a region doesn’t appear highlighted on the map for a particular search term, does it mean there’s no interest?
No. Keep in mind that all results from Insights are normalized. So just because a particular region doesn’t appear on the top Regional interest list or isn’t highlighted on the geographic heat map, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the search term isn’t popular at all â€“ it just means that the term is more popular in other regions.
Note that you cannot simply ping a domain name and get the returned values so the data was based off of users typing in “domain name.com” as the search query.
Notice any interesting trends you did not expect?
