This one slipped under my radar as Google recently launched an Internet Stat Center. The collection of statistics is broken down into five main areas of focus: Technology, Macro Economic Trends, Media Landscape, Media Consumption, and Consumer Trends. Within each topic are subcategories focusing on an aspect of that subject area. For instance, within Consumer Trends, you can drill down into Community, Entertainment, Information and eCommerce.
This simple site is an amazing resource for Brand Managers and Marketers. After all, how many times have you needed to pull together a presentation for management and wanted a fact to support your point? Thanks to the Google Internet Stat Center, the latest and greatest figures are now just a click away.
For some odd reason, the site is used under a UK domain address so many of the facts have an European bent. But regardless, it is still a highly valuable tool for marketers and one I hope Google expands even further.
