Chinese website development

I already wrote here that China's presenting a high share in global Internet usage, and the report quoted confirms ongoing growth, this time not in the usage, but in the development of websites.

In 2005, the number of webpages in the country jumped 269 per cent to a total of 2.4 billion, while the number of domain names rose 40 per cent to 2.5 million.

The country has 694,000 websites, 60 per cent of which are company sites, with a little over 20 per cent belonging to individuals. Education and research sites account for only 5 per cent of the total. The highest number of websites, 18.6 per cent of the total, are located in Beijing, followed by 16.6 per cent in Guangdong and 9.7 per cent in Zhejiang. According to the report, however, not all sites are doing as well as expected. 39.6 per cent of the websites get less than 50 page views a day, and only 17.62 per cent of the total are updated at least once a week. 18.58 per cent are updated only once in six months."

China keeps roaring, for sure.
