Top Websites in Europe
In Europe Google’s portfolio of websites continues to stay ahead of Microsoft and Facebook but has a lower time spent per visitor meaning less potential engagement and declining advertiser revenue. The website with the highest engagement was Russian social networking site VKontakte with visitors spending an average of 6.8 hours over the month of March, followed by Mail.ru Group with 5.16 hours far ahead of Facebook with only 4.8 hours. The good news for advertisers and agencies is that Facebook accounted for 11.3% of all pages viewed during March but also means that filling Facebook ad inventory may soon become an issue if it continues to grow.
