Any guesses on the #1?
No surprise here: Google comes out on top. In July 2013, Google’s various websites reached a total of 1.2 billion people across the globe.
Microsoft, Facebook and Yahoo’s properties are each visited by almost one out of nine people on the planet.
Twitter is conspicuously absent, losing out not only to rival Facebook but also to foreign social networks and search engines like Tencent and Baidu.
Twitter only earns 26% of its ad revenue from abroad, which it might want to think about devoting more resources to. And from a usership perspective, Twitter is banned in certain payday countries like China.
Over the last six months, Twitter’s growth rate has visibly slowed. Ruh-roh.
What does this lack of international popularity mean for Twitter’s impending IPO?
