Canadians’ favourite web sites!

It is no secret that Canadians are among the most connected on the planet. and they spend the most time online, according to new data from Web research firm comScore. And it’s not even by a small margin – the average Canadian spends 43.5 hours a month on the Web, almost twice the worldwide average of 23.1 hours. So where did we spend all that time? It’s estimated that about 21 million Canadians visit YouTube each month, compared to 147 million Americans. But considering the U.S. has 10 times Canada’s population, Canadians are way ahead on a per capita basis.

Well, we certainly love wasting hours on YouTube, so it’s no surprise that Google (which owns YouTube) ranks number one in Canada for video views. Here’s the top five:

1. Google Sites

2. Bell Media


4. Microsoft Sites

5. Facebook

In terms of unique overall visitors, the story is similar. Is it a coincidence that those with high video traffic drive high unique traffic too?

1. Google Sites

2. Microsoft Sites

3. Facebook

4. Yahoo! Sites

5. Bell Media

Surprisingly, Facebook drops out of the top five in the category where you would think it would lead: time spent on websites. Here, Google completes its first-place hat trick.
