Market Share Reports

Regarding the drop in XP share:

NetMarketShare has recently shown a large drop in Windows XP share from September to October. This drop was primarily caused by a major change in the network of sites we have in China. A group of large Chinese publishers with a very large number of visitors per day had audiences heavily skewed towards Windows XP (nearly 100% XP). In researching the nature of the sites, we determined they were not appropriate for our network. We removed those publishers ourselves, which caused the shift since Chinese traffic is weighted higher due to lower coverage. The current data set is more accurate than in the past due to this.

We are researching ways to prevent outlying sites from causing this problem in the future.

On a related topic, since click fraud has become such a large problem for advertisers, we have been preparing an additional layer of reporting for NetMarketShare that will show fraudulent traffic. We will show the amount of traffic coming from bots, toolbars, and other automated methods. Stay tuned...
