GREEN EYESHADE WEARERS at Comscore have revealed that Google+ received nearly 67 million visits worldwide in November.
The figures show that Google's social networking web site, with its circles and hangouts, got 62.7 million unique visitors during November 2011. This excludes mobile users and counts only users ages 15 and above.
Most of these hits came from the US at 14.7 million, with India and Brazil coming next with 4.3 million and 3.6 million visits, respectively. The UK ranked at number seven with 2.6 million.
If you compare these numbers with those of rival social networks things don't look quite so rosy. Data from Comscore shows that in the same period Twitter got 8.7 million visitors in the UK and Facebook attracted 32.4 million.
Facebook is still clearly on top with more than 12 times as many hits as Google+ in November.
Google+ was launched in June of last year on an invite only basis and received 20 million unique visitors in its first 21 days, according to Comscore's data. However, it didn't open its gates to the general public until September.
Although the US was the number one country, Europe had the largest regional audience overall with 35 per cent. North America came in second with 26 per cent and Asia Pacific third with 19 per cent. µ
