The latest comscore press release “India’s Local News Destinations See Visitors from Outside of the Country Account for a Significant Share of their Global Audience” talks about the traffic the popular Indian sites are getting from outside India (safe to assume most of the users from outside India are NRIs). We at Oneindia.in are excited to see being ranked highly but competition is tight. We are happy to see where we are but not satisfied completely. We have a lot more potential which we are in the process of exploiting.

*Excludes visits from public computers such as Internet cafes or access from mobile phones or PDAs If you observe the table closely you will infer that Oneindia.in is the only property that is not backed by a media house. Every other property is backed by a big, mega rich media house. I look forward to the increase in usage of Indian languages on the internet which will help Oneindia.in in a big way. Numbers will remain as numbers. We want more satisfied users. Thanks to our users & in-house team for having Oneindia.in ranked so well.
