By the Numbers: 10 Amazing Craigslist Statistics

After three years of creating and updating digital stat posts, I am slightly embarrassed that I have completely overlooked a website that just about all of us have not only visited, but probably patronized for a free bookshelf, condo rental, internship, etc more than a few times.

For us millennials, Craigslist has been around for most of our adult lives and, for most of that time, has been as much a part of our internet experience as Google and Wikipedia. It is a relatively low-key site (with a few glaring exceptions over the years) that just keeps providing a steady and reliable service year after year.

Currently ranked #43 on Alexa’s top global websites list (just behind Apple.com) is an Internet giant most Americans have likely never heard of. Mail.ru is a true digital conglomerate and one of the largest companies in Russia. Not only do they operate Russia’s largest free email service (similar to Gmail), but they also own one of Russia’s largest search engines, old school instant messaging app ICQ, and Russia’s three largest social networks (Odnoklassniki, VK and My World).

So how big is Mail.ru? I sat down recently to pull together a few Mail.ru stats. Pretty impressive considering how focused they are on one country (albeit a very big country).

By the Numbers: 35 Amazing Yahoo Statistics

I get a lot of requests for new stat posts these days and one of the most requested companies is usually Yahoo. Makes sense since Yahoo is one of the oldest, largest and most visible digital companies around. Problem is, they aren’t all that forthcoming with their stats. Even though they are a publicly traded company, their reports generally focus on financials with just a few cherry-picked users stats mixed in. Even their blog(s) contain very little data and the few user stats they do include on their blog and various websites are usually over a year old.

Remember when MTV used to show music videos? It’s been years since we’ve had an all-music video channel on basic cable, but thankfully digital has picked up and kept videos alive. A little over 5 years ago, Vevo set out to keep videos alive by creating a video entertainment platform that offered videos and music-related on-demand programming spanning mobile apps, Vevo.com and a number of Syndication partners, most notably, YouTube.
