Maps gets a lift from new streetview countries
Last week Google Maps introduced Streetview in the Netherlands and the UK. The launch of the two new countries made Maps go Sky high in traffic.
Both countries saw a big increase in traffic towards Google Maps with a rise of 41% in the UK as example of the popularity of streetview.
The rise of visits to the Netherlands and the UK also affected other countries which have streetview. The maps.google.com site saw an increase of 14%. This off course because people started 'playing around' with streetview. This can also be seen by the time people stayed on the site. The average visit time was 7 minutes 6 seconds.
