From the beginning of June to the middle of July 2007, The New7Wonders website was one of the 200 most-visited websites worldwide and it remains a very popular online destination today.
Around July 7, when The Official New 7 Wonders of the World where announced in Lisbon, new7wonders.com received approximately four times as much traffic as liveearth.org, despite the media hype around the LiveEarth concerts. During this time The New7Wonders site also topped many high-visibility websites, such as coke.com, nike.com, un.org, unesco.org, olympic.org and playboy.com — with often between three and four times more traffic than these sites for months at a time.
Ahead of FIFA and MTV
This site, new7wonders.com, had about twice as much traffic in early July as did the FIFA site, fifa.com, during the 2006 World Cup. New7Wonders traffic was also about 25 percent higher than that on mtv.com during the star-studded MTV Awards, a huge global music event, on September 9, 2007.
Still in the very top percentage of websites worldwide
Since New7Wonders has an active community of members interested in all facets of the dialogue about our global heritage, it remains a leading online destination for people everywhere. The site has already received hundreds of thousands of nominations for the New7Wonders of Nature campaign — voting to determine the Top 77 will soon start.
Why is this incredible traffic?
New7Wonders was the first-ever global election, receiving well over 100 million votes from around the world—online, via SMS and via phone. For the first time, people from all continents rallied together to celebrate our world’s diversity and beauty — New7Wonders has thus become a symbol for dialogue and mutual appreciation, changing the world forever. 2007 — the year when the world came together, online and offline
