Some Interesting Web Stats – As of February 2012

I compiled some interesting world stats recently and here is what I found:

Most Popular Search Engines

For most of the countries on our priority market list, Google is BY FAR the most popular search engine. However there are three countries that are exceptions:
  1. China: Baidu
  2. South Korea: Naver (North Korea is very Google)
  3. Taiwan: Yahoo was first last year but is now still in a fairly close second place.
