Stickiest websites for Filipino Internet Users

Using estimates generated by Double Click Ad Planner by Google, the following sites have high page views or stickiness among Filipino Internet users. (data covers September 2010)

Some thoughts to ponder on the image:

  1. Facebook active users count is at 10 million for the Philippines generating 3.9 billion page views.
  2. Google and YouTube traffic data not available for the Philippines which is a bit ironic. Am expecting Google to share their own data too as much as it encourages others to do so.
  3. Friendster still has an active user community that can't be counted out.
  4. Tagged users are very active in checking out profiles (which I assume includes photos). Its visitors also drops by dating sites.
  5. Sulit and AyosDito are top 2 Pinoy sites most visited by Filipinos.
  6. Habits of Filipino online gamers are changing as they focused more on games that are integrated in social networks.
  7. Noting Multiply, Blogger, and Tumblr as popular blog sites for Pinoys.
  8. Growing number of Pinoys spending their time in online service marketplace oDesk to get freelance projects.
  9. When counter-checking the list with Alexa, a lot of the sites listed in Alexa have low count in Double Click Ad Planner.
  10. There are 1.5 million active Twitter users in the Philippines.
Look forward to your thoughts.
