Google+ With 110,7 Million Visitors Worldwide In June

According to comScore, Google+ had 110,7 million unique visitors worldwide in June. Compared to last November, this is a growth of 66%. In the U.S., the growth is even higher, with an 82% growth from November to 27,7 million unique visitors in June.

The comScore data thus confirms earlier Google+ growth stories based on U.S. data from Experian Hitwise and Compete. But the global numbers from comScore are the first worldwide numbers made public available from any analytical firm since the beginning of the year.

Google numbers confirmed

In pure numbers, Google+ according to comScore grew from 66,7 million visitors worldwide last November to 110,7 million visitors in June. This is a growth of 66%. With 110,7 million unique visitors during a month, from desktops only, the comScore data also seem to confirm Google’s own published data: 250 million accounts, 150 million monthly users and 75 million daily users worldwide. According to the comScore data, 25% of the Google+ worldwide visitors in June came from the U.S., up from 22,8% in November last year. 

Google+ vs. Facebook in the U.S.

In the U.S., Google+ according to comScore grew from 15,2 million visitors last November to 27,7 million visitors in June. This is a growth of 82% In the same period, Facebook has gone from 166 million unique visitors in the U.S. last November to 158 million visitors in May, but growing again in June to 159,8 million visitors. While Facebook in November had almost 11 times as many unique visitors as Google+ in the States, the Facebook/Google+ visitor ratio now has decreased to 5,8. But when it comes to engagement, defined as for instance time spent, it is probable that Facebook engagement still is sky high compared to Google+. comScore have not made any engagement numbers for Google+ available since January.
