At 30 June 2010, 40% of Australian businesses had a web presence. This includes businesses with a website, home page or other web presence but not listed as part of a web directory.

A strong relationship exists between the size of a business and the likelihood that the business has a web presence; 29% of businesses with 0-4 persons employed had a web presence, increasing to 94% of businesses with 200 or more persons employed.
