History of the Australian web revealed

3 Aug 2009, by Informa Australia

An ambitious website showing an animation of the growth of web usage in Australia has today gone live.


The History of the Australian Web project, created by the Australian Interactive Media Industry Association, allows users to view the rise and fall of websites across the last eight years based on pages views, audience or time spent.The display was developed by The Interaction Consortium using data supplied by Nielsen Online.

AIMIA CEO John Butterworth said: “This project has revealed some fascinating insights into Australian web usage and creates a much needed snapshot of the Australian Internet landscape and longer-term trends.”

AIMIA’s 5th Digital Summit 2009 will be held on the 12-13 October 2009 at the Sydney Harbour Marriott.
