Analysis and Pointers:

a) At least half of these dozen are hardcore social networking sites.Orkut is still doing reasonably well in India, and Facebook has fast climbed to number 3, after the obligatory Google Search.

b) Google India is on the first position and we wonder how many choose to surf the net in their local languages. This information can transform the way content is produced in India currently.If this data can be gathered, it will allow content creators to better plan their offerings.

c) The only two India based entities, Rediff and Indiatimes are web portals, with a strong presence in the e-commerce space. These two being popular shopping sites, this is another pointer to increasing online expenditure habits being formed.
