Cleveland Insights During 2016 RNC


Cleveland, Ohio received a surge of visitors this week as people attend the 2016 Republican National Convention. The RNC estimates that around 50,000 people will attend the convention, including up to 15,000 media representatives. The Cleveland Police have also stated that there may be as many as 18,000 protesters entering Cleveland. That’s a very large increase to Cleveland’s normal 390,000 population, and there’s a good chance that some of these attendees are part of Pornhub’s 60+ million daily visitors. With this in mind, our statisticians set out to see how Cleveland’s Pornhub viewership may have changed since the convention started on July 18.

But SimilarWeb has now became the first company to provide website rankings that includes mobile devices. This revision now shows that Pornhub is the 23rd most popular website in the world! That means Pornhub now has higher online visits globally than giants like eBay, MSN or Netflix.

The following chart illustrates why the inclusion of mobile traffic so drastically changes Pornhub’s web ranking. Since 2010, visits from mobile devices have grown a staggering 1424%. That means that today, more of Pornhub’s 60+ million daily visitors get off on-the-go using their smartphones than all other platforms combined.
