The website analyzed 200,000 websites with more than 250 million unique monthly visitors for a period of 6 months (September 2013-February 2014) and delivered the following six significant findings:

  • Youtube drives the most engaged traffic with the lowest average bounce rate of 43.19%, the highest pages per visit (2.99) and the longest visit duration of 227.82 seconds.
