Well, here are some astonishing web statistics we were able to uncover:

  • There are an estimated 966 million websites on the web today but this number is constantly rising. Your competitors almost definitely have a website so you should too!
  • Google is the #1 most popular website in the world, followed by Facebook and YouTube.
  • The most expensive domain name ever sold is insurance.com, which sold for $35.6 million in 2010.
  • An estimated 37,000 websites are hacked every day.
  • The most popular CMS (content management system) is WordPress, powering 25.4% of all websites in the world. WordPress is also responsible for over 76.5 million blogs created since 2004.
  • The average e-commerce site takes 7.12 seconds to load in Internet Explorer 9, an average of 7.15 seconds to load in Firefox 7 and an average of 7.5 seconds to load in Google Chrome.
  • 8 out of 10 consumers will shop online if offered free shipping.
  • 50% of mobile users will abandon a web page if it takes more than 10 seconds to load, and 60% won’t return to the site.
  • A single second delay in your website loading time can result in a 7% loss in conversion. 40% of web users will abandon a website if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load. Is your website struggling to keep up? We can help!
  • Personalised recommendations can increase conversion rates by up to 5.5 times.
  • 2.9 billion Google searches are made every day.
  • Facebook has an estimated 1.2 Billion active users. Meaning that of the 7 billion people on Earth, 17% are on Facebook. Is your business on Facebook? Find our more about our social media account set up to get a head start.
