    Came across a list of the most visited websites by Australian's in the news. I personally use or have used all these, some daily - but I haven't ever used Diply. Seems the odd one out on the list.

    Also interesting Google.com is third, higher than what I would have thought.

    Top 10 sites by visits:
    • Google.com.au
    • YouTube
    • Google.com
    • Facebook
    • Reddit
    • Wikipedia
    • Ebay.com.au
    • Live
    • Diply
    • Yahoo
    The data comes from Alexa, here's the full article: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-05-...top-sites-are-google-youtube-facebook/8493540

    For starters, they can only get their information from people using the Alexa toolbar, and I doubt 'most' people use it. Probably provides a decent sample, but I wouldn't bet my house on it.

    Looking at the full report, the results get even stranger. Personally I take with a grain of salt, but always curious to see what makes the list.

    Out of interest I asked a room of people this morning if anyone uses Diply, nobody had heard of it. It could be the demographics of the room, but they're all heavy Internet users. I know there are other companies that sell this sort of data, like Experian/Hitwise for example, so I'm guessing they might have better quality data - but you pay for it.
