The data are from Alexa and the countries with “unknown” best I can tell do no produce enough data to be ranked. Google’s country domains (.ca, .jp, etc.) number 200+ and are all included as “Google.” No properties are included ( for example).


map of top websites by country


Some things do pop out:


Russia and China like their websites homegrown. Russia’s Yandex is a search engine as is China’s Baidu.


Cameroon and Japan prefer Yahoo. Do those countries have anything else in common?


Why does Kazakhstan like to e-mail so much?


What other questions does this map raise?
