    Google Internet Stats

    Google has unveiled another "beta" project, Google Internet Stats.

    The pages are hosted, not at Google.com, but at Google.co.uk. The stats are a fairly random collection of trivial facts -- many of which don't seem very "Internet" related.
    • Energy bills increased by around 30% over 2008.
    • On January 26th 2009, more than 76,000 job cuts were announced worldwide in a single day.
    • On March 23rd 2009, the World Trade Organisation (WTO) predicted that global trade will plunge by 9% this year - the steepest drop since the second world war.
    • According to Nielsen, 67% of the global online population visited a "member community" site in Dec 2008.
    • Although men and women follow a similar number of Twitter users, men have 15% more followers than women.
    • 5% of all time online is spent on Facebook.
    • 34% of Brits spend a whole day trying to find the best holiday deal online.
    • Searches for mortgages decreased by 19% over the quarter.
    • Search made up 47% of online advertising in Western Europe in 2008.


    There is even a button to submit your own stats. This could be fun to play with.

    Talk about totally useless, irrelevant facts...

    Why is this even called 'Internet Stats?'

    some are interesting
    It could be freaking useful if google manages to create a HUUUGE facts database and lets you search facts for certain keywords

    I love these stats. When cross checked, these can be used in a business or generate ideas for new businesses.

    In combination with Wolfram|Alpha can be a powerful tool.

    I use Wolfram|Alpha every so often for some scientific purposes. It's a nifty tool.

    Much better than 'Google Internet Stats'...
