I am glad to see that Wikipedia is so high up. People are educating themselves. Nice.

Or they're just opening the first page on most searches:). Wikipedia almost always shows up at the top when I search something, unless ofcourse you search something specific like "news24.com"

Wait, weren't Effective Measure the same guys who muddled the online radio stats?

They used a panel, as mentioned in the article. They can track a user who has downloaded the panel software across any web property.

No, that was Netdynamix

So that panel's figures are extrapolated?

How many people has Google set as home page?

There's no need for me to set Google as my home page because I use Chrome, I can just search from the address bar.
That makes me wonder if that sort of search also counts towards this statistic.

You can do this with internet explorer as well, and yeah I think if you search this way, the results will count as a hit towards the statisitics

Crazy that Yahoo is still so high...

Looks about right. SA Internet community is a bit of a funny beast, and doesn't necessarily track international norms because the restrictions and the needs are so very different. Pretty sure YouTube would be quite a bit higher-up that list in most developed nations.
