UK Online Population at its Peak

This is a piece of good news for Internet marketing companies in the UK. The Online population of the country reached its highest-ever figure – 31.8 million unique visitors – in the month of July. However, the most surprising part is that July is the summer holiday season in the country, and most families spend time outside their homes and offices, away from their computers.

According to reports available online, Google attracted 28.2 million visitors in the month, counting for 89 percent of the total online population. At second spot was Microsoft, attracting about 26.9 million unique visitors during the same time period. Websites dealing with travel and holiday packages, flight and hotel bookings, etc had a good time during this summer holiday season.

However, industry experts insist that unpleasant weather is the main reason why people are staying back at home and surfing the Internet as part of domestic recreation activities. Whatever the cause, online businesses are truly having a ball in the UK, raking in huge amounts of profit.
