Maybe you could have a quick look in your website logs?

the only site where i use web trends pro is for a multilingual site (7).

so info not of much use.

on smaller sites i use web seo, and this does not differenciate google.com from .es just gives google.

anyone able to help?

I get a .es (Spain) visitor once a quater (every 3 months) - from a site that pulls in 250-400 unique visitors a day.

For comparison one site with danish content only, the ratio is 6 to 1 in favor of google.dk compared to google.com

So my guess would be that in Spain the 6/1 ratio could be used as a rule of thumb.

Alexa says Google.es gets 6.36% of the traffic obtained by Google.com.

MetricsMarket says Google.es gets 11% of the traffic obtained by Google.com.

Pick a number, any number, in between ;)

I would guess MetricsMarket is closer to the truth :)

Google.es is relatively new. So I would imagine any figures will start to increase when the Spanish population start to use it more.

Guys, this discussion is not about worldwide usage of .es vs .com.
It's about usage in Spain.

Seeing that Google automatically serves you a local version unless told otherwise the estimation Rumbas gives should give a realistic picture.

a further question ...

any figures for users of the different searches:

the web
pages in a specific language
pages from a specific country
