Global Users Map % Change

Total Users & New Users (Global)
Financer.com welcomed more than 1 million monthly users during Q1 & Q2 of 2022. 6.04 million users visited the site, which is 1.7 million more than in 2021. New users were 5.39 million, 89% of the total.
Bounce Rate By Market
The average bounce rate across all markets has been just 76%, which is 2% less than the previous year, and well below the industry average. The markets with the lowest bounce rates were Indonesia, the US, Georgia, France, and Bulgaria.
Bounce Rate % Change By Market
Few markets experienced a relative increase in bounce rates, primarily due to the rapid growth of organic traffic for informational articles, but most loan-related pages had reduced bounce rates. The most drastic bounce rate reductions were recorded in Indonesia, the US, Bulgaria, and Georgia.
Session Duration By Market
Overall, session durations decreased slightly in 2022, expected due to a larger percentile increase in organic traffic on informational articles with higher bounce rates. Despite the decline, the average session duration remained high at 64 seconds, which is on par with competitor standards.
Pageviews/User By Market
Pageviews per user remained roughly the same in 2022, with a global average of 1.48. The markets with the highest pageviews per user are Indonesia, France, Estonia, Mexico, Italy, Latvia, and Lithuania.
Pageviews Change By Market
Most markets significantly increased their total pageviews in 2022 due to the substantial increase in new users. The biggest pageview gainers were Indonesia, Russia, Romania, Mexico, Kazakhstan, the Netherlands, the US, and Sweden, all experiencing larger than 50% increases.
Total global pageviews in the first half of 2022 were close to 9 million, almost 3 million more than last year’s previous period.
Redirected Users % Change By Market
A critical success metric is the number of users who click and redirect to loan offers across our website. Those redirects promote more than 2000 financial products of worldwide financial institutions.
Most markets have seen a significant increase in their total redirected users. The biggest gainers were the US, Indonesia, Russia, Italy, and Mexico, which more than doubled their affiliated traffic compared to the previous year.
Redirected Users Global Avg
In total, 586,115 users clicked on loan offers listed on Financer.com during the first half of 2022, 200+ thousand more than in 2021. This traffic was estimated to generate loans of over €50 million for the financial institutions listed on Financer.com
Redirect Rate By Market
Another critical success rate is how often a website visitor engages with at least one of our loan offers, also known as the Redirect Rate. Redirect rates greatly vary across markets based on ease of lending terms, availability of financial products, economic growth, and financial market stability.
Financer.com has been overperforming the industry standard redirect rates (where available) and their respective loan conversion rates in most markets. The best-performing markets were France, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Latvia, Germany, Georgia, Brazil, and Slovakia.
Redirect Rate Global Avg
The average redirect rate for the entire site was 9.71% in 2022, a stark increase from 8.88% in 2021. With new AI & machine learning split testing tools, we aim to raise the metric to 10% before 2022.
Slider Users % Change By Market
As a financial product comparison engine, one of the key metrics is how often we use our loan comparison tool (known as the “slider”). Increased slider usage indicates more engaged visitors who want to take a loan.
As seen in the chart, most markets saw increases in their slider users, with Indonesia and the Netherlands leading the way.
Slider Users Global Avg
More than 150,000 visitors used the loan comparison sliders between January 1st, 2022, and June 30th, 2022. This is a 27% increase compared to 2021.
