Very interesting. Poland was one of the last European countries with a local engine that totally dominated the scene - Onet.pl - and this is the one that has taken the beating as Google marches across Poland. Perhaps it reflects the rapid growth of Internet usage in Poland, +220% 2000-2004 with new users heading straight for Google?

Also interesting is that the directory wp.pl, has managed to hold onto its ground. Wonder why?

Thanks Sanenet for the link to internetstats.com - a real gold mine! When I was moderating this forum 2000-2001 I had to pull that sort of stuff together myself from all over the place. Now it is all there in one place.

how do they define "internet users".. seems 70% penetration for US is a bit too much..

It is interesting to see how badly Yahoo and MSN are doing there.

Hey rencke. Pleased to see you around :)

Remember back in 2000-01 when we sucked up ANY stats we could get our hands on reg. internet usage in Europe? Things have certainly changed since then, eh?

Folks, go back in time and read some of the great threads rencke posted back then. I'm still going back to those threads once in a while, when I need a country overview.

Good old threads:

Thanks for the applause Rumbas. I just reread the European SEO Strategy Primer post that you linked to and was surprised to see how much of it is still up to date, particularly in part 1. The technical development has made som advise obsolete of course, but less than I had expected. Part 2 needs to be updated with the success of Google, but gives a pretty good picture otherwise.

seems 70% penetration for US is a bit too much

The US and Scandinavia had around 60% back in 2001, so 70% today is probably about right. It is usually defined as access the the Internet either from home or from work, but doesn't take into account the frequency of use.
