Report: Facebook Has The Most Implemented Social Plugins, Google’s +1 Surging

Report: Facebook Has The Most Implemented Social Plugins, Google’s +1 Surging | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
Today BrightEdge, an enterprise SEO platform, released a report on the adoption of social sharing plugins on websites. This report also includes a look at the statistics around basic social links, e.g. , a direct link to a Facebook Fan Page. The findings show that out of the top 10,000 websites those that have a link to either their Facebook page or Twitter profile are in the the slight minority at 49% of all sites. Websites without these social links are a bit more prevalent with 51% failing to have a Facebook or Twitter link on their homepage.

Overall, Facebook is still the most prominent in terms of social links and social plugins, but Google’s +1 is gaining. The most captivating stat of the report was just how little the Twitter plugins are being utilized currently even though over 40% of sites had a link to their Twitter profile.

For those viewing raw logs, or using third party tools (like Sitemeter, which I use in addition to Google Analytics, Quantcast and Icerocket, just to overload myself with data), you can now see Google+ referrals.

You get what you give in the social networking space, so no doubt if you participate in G+ (as the cool kids are calling it these days) or you make it part of your flow, you can see it bringing visitors your way.

1 Billion People Use Google in 1 Month « The Careless Whisperer

Recent reports have stated that in the month of May, Google sites, including its search engine, Gmail and Youtube (which it acquired back in 2006), had 1 billion unique visitors in total. Having previously discussed the competition each search engine site faces to be the most popular and most-used, the figures distributed by ComScore, a company that compiles web data, show just how popular Google is.

Whilst it is good news for Google, particularly as it is the first time a search engine has hit this impressive 1 billion mark, the increasing figures of their rivals may cause a worry.

How Many Google+ Users So Far? - Latest Data Suggests 1.7 million worldwide - Post de Paul Allen | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
On Saturday I completed my first analysis of Google's userbase using surname distribution data from the US Census Bureau. Using an admittedly flawed model, I estimated then that Google had 410,773 + users as of 7/2/11.

Here are the latest conclusions: Google+ currently has 515,933 users in the U.S, and 1,226,136 outside the US for a total of 1,742,069 users.
