Hitwise is predicting that visits to UK online retail sites will see a growth of 8% this Christmas over last. This is a rate of growth fast than last year and search engines will account for 35% of visits with Google and Yahoo leading the fray.
Hitwise has also launched a new data center facility which gives a variety of information including search engine share. In September this was:
- Google.co.uk 66%
- Google.com 12%
- Yahoo 6%
- MSN 6%
Which all in all means that Google continues to lead the way with the ‘American’ site beating the UK sites of its two main competitors.
