In an effort to find out which countries have the best SEO, the folks over at The American Conservatives decided to take a closer look at which of the world’s biggest nations are hosting the most online traffic.
And it turns out that China is not one of the countries with the highest levels of traffic, as the United States comes in second place with 3.8 billion visitors a year.
“If you are looking to make your website better, you will need to focus on the most popular countries,” the site’s creator, Andrew Bacevich, said.
“China is one of those countries.”
According to the study, China hosts the highest number of websites in the world, accounting for nearly half of all websites.
While most of the traffic comes from China, it’s also coming from India, Brazil, India, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and Canada.
Other countries with a high number of online visitors include Brazil, Russia, and India.
It also appears that China has the highest amount of users for social media and is the number one source of online traffic for websites, according to the site.
Bacevitch said that while there are still a few issues with China’s internet traffic, the country is “very active in terms of social media.”
As such, he said that most of his clients would be looking for ways to boost their websites traffic.
“When people are looking for a new website, they want it to look the best,” he said.
It’s not just China that has a problem with traffic.
According to Baceviks website, a lot of the top websites in Europe are hosted by the United Arab Emirates.
The UAE hosts almost a quarter of the internet traffic in Europe.
Baces website also notes that while the number of people using social media sites is on the rise, many sites are still in a “relatively slow” development process.
“The fact that Facebook is the most visited social network in the U.K. and France does not mean that other social networks are doing well either,” Bacevaich said.
That said, he is optimistic that the industry is moving in the right direction.
“A lot of sites are doing very well, and there are many websites that are doing better than others,” he added.
“There is so much growth that is happening in the online world, and that is the real story.”
