ABC Electronic audit says that the busiest “audited” website in the Arabic language is the Dubai-based news site Al Arabiya.net with 22 million page views in November 06 – the audit period. Al Arabiya.net was launched in March 2003 as a satellite channel giving 24 hour Arabic-language news across 5 continents. Its portal-style website also features an Arabic-language search engine and claims to have over one million page views per day.
Al Arabiya’s largest web audience is in Saudi Arabia (21%) with Egypt (10%) following behind – but the site has large populations of Arabic speakers in the US (8%) with the UK, France, Germany and Canada each representing around 4% of the audience. According to Al Arabiya, the audience is growing.

This does not make sense and I assume the magic keyword here is audited. The other famouse web sites like Aljazeera.net, Alquds.co.uk and Arabtimes have not been audited?
Try to use Alexa.com to determine the traffic, and Aljazeera.net comes out on top.
Also, what is not clear is how are these Arabic portals are going to create an income stream from this traffic without a solid advertising vehicle?
