World Cup YouPorn Traffic from Germany

OH WIE IST DAS SCHON! Yes, indeed – how beautiful it is! Except maybe for YouPorn. The World Cup is on and Germans are glued to their televisions – instead of watching YouPorn. For shame!

Just kidding Germany – the YouPorn team is watching too, but we managed to get the attention of our statisticians long enough to check how traffic from Germany was affected by some of the hottest World Cup matches so far.

Germany vs Portugal

In the hours before the Germany vs Portugal match, traffic to YouPorn was well below time of day averages in both countries. When the game kicked off at 9:00 PST it was down 40% in Portugal and 60% in Germany. Traffic from both countries started to increase around half-time, but more quickly in Portugal. Germany won 4-0, which saw post-game traffic in Portugal go up nearly 10% over average.


Worldwide, the biggest traffic change during the Germany vs Portugal match was a 25% drop from Poland. Most other European countries saw their traffic drop between 15-20%.

Germany vs Ghana

Traffic from Italy and the United Kingdom was down nearly 40% but started to increase sharply at half-time. Italy won the match 2-1 and fans there bucked the trend and headed back to YouPorn in droves to celebrate their win. Post-game traffic in Italy was up over 80% compared to daily averages.


Spain vs Netherlands

Nearly 25% of YouPorn’s typical German viewers chose to watch the Spain vs Netherlands match instead of their favorite porn site, but traffic returned to normal quickly after the match. Spain’s traffic dropped 40% during the game but nearly 65% in the Netherlands. The match ended 5-1 for the Netherlands and traffic quickly increased there to slightly above time-of-day averages. There was a small increase in Spain immediate after the match, but in the hours that followed the traffic was slightly lower than usual.
