Google Plus traffic has plummeted

October 12th, 2011

The data analytics company, Chitika, announces that Google+ traffic has plummeted by 60%. After a spike of 1,200% in the first few days following its public launch, on September 20, the service opened its gates to all users with high expectations of the world’s response.

Chitika had published a chart that shown how on the day of its public debut, Google+ traffic skyrocketed to peak levels. But, soon after, traffic fell by over 60% as it returned to its normal underwhelming state. On their first month of operation Google+ hit 25 million unique visitors, making it one of the fastest growing social networks of all time.

Today, an unofficial count pegged the number of Google+ users at 43 million. This statistics seem to suggest that Google+ may not be convincing new users to stick around, representing a huge challenge to compete with the thousand of millions Facebook’s fans.
