From September 2009, absolute unique visitors from some of the biggest websites in the world started to drop.

I've checked the charts from Google Trends and drawn some basic trendlines.

Maybe I'm seeing ghosts, but I'm curious about your theories...

  • My bet is that the drop off you observed is related in part to Chinese Internet censorship.
    Prior to the Olympics in 2008, we lost access to a lot of sites including: blog sites, youtube, facebook, and a bunch of other sites were censored by Google and other platforms/portals.

  • So LinkedIn & Facebook are not the Internet? Consider the massive shift to YouTube, Hulu and other video sites that have 10x more ’time on page’ which means fewer page views, dramatically fewer. Also factor in seasonality, and the shift in needs due to the economy; I bet Monster and other employment site traffic is way up. Finally the long tail sites where you can get slivers of specific interest rather than slices of generalities.

  • The Internet has lots of life left in it. There’s much more growth to come. Apparent transitions or phases reflect distinct elements that were evident in the founding dreams of hypermedia. Web 1.0 = Hyper-linking (realized as URLs and HTML links that enable websurfing). Web 2.0 = Hyper-mixing (realized as AJAX, XML, KML, JSON, etc. plus prolific UGC, all helping to enable mashups) . Web 3.0 = Hyper-sourcing (realized as interlocking social graphs and planned semantic formats that will enable trustworthy signaling). What factors might explain the graph? There are big problems in the economy, but mostly I think there’s some creative destruction going on. And it’s not over yet.

  • Social computing and human-interaction... I guess 'Trust' as a lot to do with this.

      The banking crisis caused a correction, not just in consumer confidence and people’s spending power , but also in their values i.e. a refocus on the things that really matter to people (friends, family, leisure pursuits, work=life balance etc).
