Five months into 2015, The Pinnacle List experienced one of the most dissimilar months in May. The United States of America lost 4.18% marketshare, while remaining atop the list of countries visiting The Pinnacle List, but the real story was the meteoric rise of the Russian Federation, placing second with 8.10% total visits in May.
Russia’s 5.89% jump in May over April unseated the United Kingdom and Canada from their respective positions and even recorded a higher percentage of visits than both English speaking nations have during any month this year. For the first time this year, the UK fell to third position, while Canada stumbled down to sixth. France and Germany swapped positions within the fourth and fifth positions.
The Pinnacle List’s increased traffic from Russia demonstrates an incredibly successful strategy implemented in February by joining VK – an emerging social network in Russia and Eastern Europe. At the time of joining VK, Russia only had 0.60% market share in total visits since TPL launched on April 23, 2011. Since joining VK on February 10, 2015, that number has risen to 1.18% – jumping from 24th overall to 12th – two spots outside the top 10 list.
Russia has become a social media strategy success for The Pinnacle List in just a few short months and we expect to continue seeing our Russian audience grow. We welcome you from Russia with open arms!
