Google+ Traffic Drops 60% from Post-Launch Highs

During the initial days after the public launch of Google+ on September 20th, the traffic jumped up to 1,200%, however, since then it has seemed to plunge down by 60%, claimed a data analytics company.

The online data analytics company, Chitika gave an account of Google+ traffic before and after its worldwide public launch.

According to the data analytics company, “The data shows that, 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.”

The initial statistics collected by comScore revealed that Google+ received 25 million unique users within the first month of its global launch. These growing numbers made the young social platform one of the fastest growing social networks of all time. Since it has started its operations, Google+ reveals many new features and improvements in response to users’ demands and requests. Even Google+ went to an extent to have public figures broadcast to fans through Google Hangouts.

Despite its all the hard work, Google fails to draw significant traffic to its young social platform. New interface, improvements and features that appear on regular basis doesn’t seem enough to convince people to stay on Google+.

However, it is too early to reach any conclusion about the future of the Google+ because ups and downs are a matter of common experience. We will have to wait and see what necessary measures Google+ will take to drive unique visits.

It’s been quite some time that Google has earthed any official details about the users, shares or traffic on its social platform. it was back in July, when Google’s CEO Larry Page officially announced that the Google+ had over 10 million users and since then we have heard much from Google, though, some unofficial stats suggest that the current user-base of Google+ counts at 43 million.

It is also important to note here that the stats provided by Chitika Insights may likely be a representation of traffic patterns rather that the accurate figures. We hope to hear something authentic from Google soon.
