google.com.pk ranked 126th in the whole world

I think it was Mark Twain, who attributed it to the 19th Century British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli that, "There are three kinds of lies: Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics".

I was just browsing though alexa.com, one of the leading web analytic companies and much to my surprise, google.com.pk came up as 126th in the whole world......

There was obviously something wrong with these stats.... There weren't so many Internet users in Pakistan and how the hell could they be "searching / learning" so much....

GOOGLE....of all the places in Cyberspace...

The stats got more weirder; an average Pakistani Internet user checked with Google a staggering 22 times a day and spent over 11 minutes on Google per day.

And Google is not even the top ranked site in Pakistan...yeah you guessed it...Facebook has over 10 Million Pakistanis users.

Now there are an estimated 30 Million + Internet Users in Pakistan, which should place it at around Number 27 in the World and voila Pakistani are also ranked 27 on Facebook....

I have not been able to find out the number of Pakistanis using the Internet on their phones, but it looks like it is already more than the Desktop Users. With the imminent advent of 3G, I am sure this number is going to surge.

But the greatest uptake from it all is that Pakistan is on the rise...We are a vibrant and a thriving learning community. We would soon be ridden of the scourges that plague us...We live learn to exist in peace
