Porn on the Go: Mobile Traffic Takeover


Marketing intelligence firm SimilarWeb uses a wide variety of data sources to create an accurate and reliable picture of the digital world. One of their primary services is to rank the popularity of the world’s websites based on traffic volume. Until recently, SimilarWeb reported that Pornhub was the 38th most popular website in the world. Impressive, right?

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.

We found that this island country ranks 82nd for traffic to Pornhub, but that’s nearly half its rank of 152nd worldwide for population. The average Cypriot spends only 5 seconds longer on Pornhub than the world average, but 29% of visitors are women – a full 5% more than Pornhub’s average. Tuesday is the most popular day of the week to visit Pornhub and Friday is the least popular, but more visitors go to Pornhub from 3pm to 4pm in the afternoon than at any other time of the day.
